Default computer pci-e power and tri-path amps

i was wondering, with tri-path amps being able to handle a 12v input, would it be possible to wire it up to a PC's pci-e 6 or 8 pin PSU connector? i believe they are capable of 75 and 150w respectively.

has anyone attempted this?

We used a commercial product that was a chip-amp (stereo) and plugged into a pci slot for power.

All audio connections were on the back panel.

I don't know if if it is still available.

I don't remember the make/model.

Did a search for "pci amplifier card" in google images.

The one we used looked similar to this:

Audio PC : Internal 2x12 watt stereo amplifier adapter for PC, PCI or ISA

But I don't remember the heat sink... it has been a few years.
