HPE Microserver Gen 10 Plus Ram Compatibility

About 1.5 years ago, I purchased this Lycom DT-120 card:

 

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MYCQP38/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

I put a 1TB Samsung 970 EVO NVMe on it. I'm using it in my HPE ML30 Gen9, which runs ESXi v6.5 U3. Note: I boot ESXi off a USB stick and use the NVMe as a datastore, but IIRC, it's possible to boot off the NVMe with the card as well.

 

I learned about this card from https://tinkertry.com/how-to-install-a-2nd-samsung-950-pro-m2-nvme-on-superserver .

Great, thank you. I will go that route if the card I have ordered doesn't do the job as expected.

Does anyone know where I can find a non HPE ram compatibility list for this MS? HPE is just too expensive.

 

Also, does anyone have experience using a PCIe 3.0 x4 card with an NVMe drive on it to run the OS?

This card worked perfectly, server is up and running.
