Hi guys,

i'm looking at maybe buying and trying out Qlogic QLE3242 or HP NC523SFP (which are basically the same cards) under ProxMox. Would use them with cisco SFP-H10GB cards.
I wonder has anyone tested them before?
Are they really overheating?
Do they really require proprietary drvers?

Tnx to whomever responds. :)

I got a NC523SFP from Ebay today. The Proxmox 6.0 installer recognized the NC523SFP adapter, FreeNas 11.2U5 also

The surface is hot, but I know other 10GB nics like Solarflare are also hot.
