Best Slot Configuration for ML570 G2 and Controllers

I have an ML570 and we are looking for the best slot configuration. We have 2 controllers 5305 and a 5302. Current congiguration is

1 = 33Mhz (Nic)
2 = 66MHZ (Nic)
3 = 66MHZ XPCI (5302 Controller)
4 = 100Mhz XPCI (5304 Controller)

There are no enginerring advisories that states this would be a problem?

Re: Best Slot Configuration for ML570 G2 and Controllers

5302 and 5304 controllers are only 64bit-66mhz pci, but what you listed is probably best.
IF you want pci-x based controllers, you'd need to go with a 5312 (now retired) or the 6400 series.

As long as the Nic in slot 1 isn't gigabit, you should be fine.
