Both the  1200W and 750W Power supplies are supported

The original intent of the 1200W Power Supply was twofold: future  10G-BaseT SKU support and additional power for potential expansion (if  needed for potential expansion modules requiring more power). A 750W  Power Supply was subsequently designed to support all
the N5K-C5020P-BF configurations and provide  better power efficiency.

All  N5K-C5020P-BF hardware chassis configurations are supported with single  750W PS, dual 750W PS, single 1200W  PS, dual 1200W PS or a mix of both power supplies at 100-120V or  200-240V.

Minimum  Software for the 750W Power Supply support: Cisco NXOS Releases:  4.1(3)N1(1), 4.0(1a)N2(1a), 4.0(1a)N1(1a)
