    Only seeing 900Mbps or less speed on 10Gb network

    4x10GbE is not the same as 1x40 GbE unless you run multiple processes (i.e. total bandwith is identical) (sidenote - well technically it is since 40G is only 4x10G lines aggregated at HW level but in the end you can get higher single process bandwith on 40G than on 4x10G joined at the switch)...

    Hm now you got me thinking... I am not entirely sure any more if it was an -A model I had before my current one, maybe it was B1 after all and I just remember it incorrectly; its been a while. So take my statement with a grain of salt

The screws are reachable from the inside, not from the actual bottom, just hidden behind cables sometimes. Can't access mine atm, so no clue and can't remember from the last time I replaced a PDB.
