Just check if -5V bus signal is connected. From a rather lowres picture of CT3620 it looks like it's not using -5V, but it does use -12V. I couldn't easily find any picture of CT2960.
-5V is signal B5 - it should be the rear side of the card, fifth signal counting from the steel card holder.

I don't think any Soundblasters past the CT1350B SB 2.0 needed -5v. I could be wrong though.

Apparently Goldfinch cards require it.
