    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.

    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

    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.
