    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
