Smoke tested the cards/cables and everything arrived in good working order (HCA's and cables).

Working on flashing the cards to the latest F/W. It would go alot quicker if I had one of those duallies with 7 PCIe 3.0 solts... :)

No rush I suppose...

Beer one.... Card one...
Beer two... Card two ..

peace,

I am probably going to give that a shot today on all of the cards. Should be fun.

Which cables are folks using with these? Just realized I need to pick two more up.

It was specific to this QDR NIC. The guy was very helpful. I am sure they can take care of you..

In the process of ordering 4 LP brackets from Gerry. Pretty painless process.

All you need is a c/c & you fill out the c/c auth form

I just got 4 of these cards off of the user yfcoa. He has one up for $125 ending in 17 hours. I messaged him and got 4 for $105 each. Now to find cables.

Edit: He had ~20 in stock.

+1 on this.

I called him up for some LP brackets for the shiny new (well.. refurb) HP 592520-B21 (Mellanox MHQH29C-XTR equivalent, which is a ConnectX-2 dual port QDR adapter), which I picked up @ $100 each.

The 12x HBAs along with 3x HP Voltaire Grid Director 4036 (coincidentally, also featured in Great Deals forum) are for a work project, of which InfiniBand will be the SAN fabric.

Probably going to go with Amphenol QSFP+ cables unless someone can recommend something else. I need 22 of them of varying lengths.
