my main question is - does it trigger after inserting the fan speed? - other way around same question is this card supported by HP that it does not boost up the fan to 50%?   thank you very much for the real experience...  as I was fighting now with an unsupported SSD for 2 days... in the bay it triggered fan boost from 6% to 50% and also on the ODD SATA same story - so this way I´m precautious what to insert into the HP gen8 as if it is yelling up its unusable...  thanks

Sorry bring this back, but what cheap pcie dual ports 10gbe can we fit in gen8 without causing issues with temps?

 

Thanks

The Mellanox cards are likely still the best deal. The will run temps similar to a RAID card. Fans will run high. Do you have a 10GbE switch?

@schoondoggynop, i don't have a 10gbe switch maybe i get hp nc 522 dual port? What do you think?

That is an old card with limited driver support.

What OS are you running?
