    I just got into 10GbE hardware thanks to @fohdeesha and his great tip on the Brocade ICX switches. I got a Chelsio T520-CR 2-port NIC and am using it in my FreeNAS machine. I am happy to report that the Mikrotik S+RJ10 transceiver that I bought for use in the Brocade ICX switch also works in this Chelsio card.

    I haven't tested it at full 10Gbps yet since I only have the one 10GbE card until the switch comes, but I wanted to share this in case there was any question of compatibility between this great FreeNAS / FreeBSD NIC and this low-cost MikroTik module.

    Tested it at 10Gbps, communicating point-to-point with a Sonnet Solo 10G Thunderbolt 3 adapter through a Dell TB16 dock to a Dell XPS 15 9550. It's working great.
