    Mikrotik CRS317-1G-16S+RM / 10GbE

    Tossed this unit into my network and I was able to secure one of the S+RJ10 10gbe modules works flawlessly with the x540. As others have stated its really a dumb switch at this point but really is a great value.

    DELL JM42W Intel X520-T2 Does Anyone Have Any Experience Of?...

    Not sure I've only installed one of x540-t2 cards into my Z170 desktop system. I'm running mellanox connectx-3's in all my servers. I've got a X99 system that I plan to put the other one into. I'll see where I land with that. Might end up getting different cards if it doesn't work with all my ram.

    DELL JM42W Intel X520-T2 Does Anyone Have Any Experience Of?...

The one odd ball thing and you can google this is that there is a memory issue with intel consumer chipsets where basically your system won’t post if it has a lot of ram. I...
