Build questions.
« on: January 17, 2018, 08:14:42 AM »
So I'm creating a list of stuff I need for my build. I have been looking at all the builds being posted here, they all look great. And I saw one that was pretty interesting and I wasn't sure if it was just an incomplete build or not. He had power running through fused blocks like I want, but no power coming from the f16v3 to the pixel. It went right from psu, fused, then the connectors. It was to my understanding that you had to run power and ground with the data, but could inject power down the line. As long as all grounds were connected. Is this possible? It will definitely change the whole build I have planned if I can cut taking power from the board.

You do not need power from the board. Just run data and ground from the board and inject power at the element.
