First of, I know CX4 is old and generally not the thing around these forums :) But since I got a bunch of HP 5120 EL switches thrown at me, all with 2 port CX4 10GbE modules installed and cables too, I really need the best advice/recommendation I can get, for a ethernet NIC with CX4 port(s)

I'm assuming that the CX4 ports on these switch modules can be used as a "normal" ports and not only for interconnecting/IRF. And with that assumption in mind, I'm searching for a CX4 outfitted NIC, for my good old trusty IBM x3850 x5 running CentOS.

Any suggetions?

Have a great weekend
