On ebay i found there FLR NIC nc 530flr | eBay

as many other for 1/5 of the price of normal PCI-E nic

I know these are HP proprietary interface on their proliant server for onboard nic (instead of soldering nic circuitry) but i wonder if somehone tried to hack these to be used in a standard motherboard.

There was a thread where somebody tried such an adapter in a normal pcie slot, fried his mainboard/server.

Flexlom is in the end just a normal PCIe but the pinout is likley very different.
Probably not worth the effort
