    Cable for r7x0 server

    I am trying to find the right cable to use for my r720 with r730 backplane installed to run to a card in the rear PCIE slots (5,6,7). greater than 31" long left (?) angle SFF-8643 -> straight SFF-8643 Something like the Dell 9MHYN might work but the angle is in the wrong direction I think.

    Dell QL41164 Disable Option ROM?

    I installed a QL41164 RNDC card into my R720 and it complains about the option rom at boot. Anyone have any ideas how to disable it? Bios only lets me disable option rom for devices in the pcie slots not the RNDC port.

    R720 backplane swap

    I am working on swapping an R720 8xLFF BP with an R730 8xLFF BP.

Attached is my pinout documentation I worked out from...

    I bought 2x H240 adapters on eBay. One was perfect, HBA mode with latest firmware, no issues. The second one I can't get to work (asked for replacement but taking a while). The card isn't totally dead, I can feel the heatsink is getting warm so it is drawing current. In windows it shows up...
