I don't see why not, looks like it has standard mounting holes for the brackets.

I feel a bit dumb asking this, but has anyone had problems installing these? The lights are coming on, but Im not getting the card's BIOS nor is my OS seeing it. Are one of those pinsets supposed to be auxiliary power?

Edit: Guess it is just my board. The card works fine on my older system. Anyone have any ideas to get it working on a SuperMicro X9DRi-LN4F+?

Those are some pretty amazing numbers right? Those latency numbers are pretty great

I'm going to reiterate the airflow topic. I've got some of the 1.2G's THEY NEED CRAZY AIRFLOW. Get some 130CFM's in there.

Pfft, I'll be fine (smoke alarm going off in background)!

Any recommendations on an appropriate fan I could fit in a 4U enclosure that won't make my ears bleed too badly?

EDIT: I currently have a RSV-L4500 with a Tyan board and no other HDDs in the system (my SAS drives are all externally attached in a JBOD enclosure). It has three Noctua NF-S12As in the front of it at the moment since there really isn't anything in it right now, but I own a few Gentle Typhoons, which seem to provide ~100 CFM unobstructed. Do you think that would be sufficient, or are these really going to run really hot?

EDIT 2: Found an external fan roundup that might help find a PWM-based solution appropriate for these.

I've got mine in an intel 3u server on riser cards. Sever room temp is 85 F, they seem to perform fine.

I could probably check the temps but I probably don't want to...

I did. 30C inlet, 32-35C for all 8 spinners in the drive cages, 42-49C for all 8 drives on the WarpDrive cards in the back of the server.

They are horizontally mounted on the bottom of three slots on two riser cards. One WarpDrive has a video card in the slot above it.
