installing usb3.0 pci express card without power

My pc does not seem to have a spare four pin power plug to connect to this card for 'extra' power as the install calls for. Can i insrall without this 'extra' power connection.

Hello ctzny,

 

The 4 pin power cable is required for this card to operate properly.
