    I need to purchase an i350-t4 and just wanted to make sure I have this correct. Are all Intel i350-t4 cards without "Delta" embossed on the transformers, or TXC on the crystal, fakes? I just wanted to double check, because if this is the case, then the majority of cards on eBay seem to be fakes.

    For example, are these all fakes?:
    NEW Intel OEM I350-T4 Ethernet Server Adapter Gigabi 4-Port RJ45 PCI-Express USA | eBay
    PCI-Express PCI-E Four RJ45 Gigabit Ports Server Adapter NIC For Intel I350-T4 | eBay
    New Four RJ45 Gigabit Ports Server Adapte for Intel I350-T4 PCI-Express PCI-E CA 615284528579 | eBay
    PCI-Express PCI-E Four RJ45 Gigabit Ports Server Adapter NIC For Intel I350-T4 615284528579 | eBay

    Conversely, if a card has embossed "Delta" and "TXC" on the crystal, can I be fairly certain it's genuine?
    For example, these are real?:
    Intel THGMP 0THGMP I350-T4 4-Port(RJ-45) Gigabit Ethernet Adapter W/ Std Profile | eBay
    NEW DELL INTEL I350-T4 QUAD PORT GIGABIT ETHERNET NETWORK CARD 9YD6K 658759202635 | eBay

    If this is indeed the case, I just find it odd that so many people purchase the fake cards without knowing it, or without caring.

    Thanks

    Thanks, I probably will just pick up a used Dell card then. It's crazy just how prevalent these fakes actually are (I checked Newegg, Amazon, and Ebay and like 90% of the cards appear to be fakes).
