Yesterday was a good day for deliveries. Along with the XL3000’s I also got a HP NC360T network card that I ordered of eBay. This will be going into the N40L microserver in the PCIe x1 slot as the x16 slot is earmarked for a P410-512 Storage Array card.
As you can see, the card is too big for the x1 slot, nothing a Dremel can’t fix 8-). Hopefully I don’t kill the card in the process. Others have opted to dremel the microserver motherboard instead. Personally, I would rather risk a cheap nic than a motherboard.
