ML350 G5 PCI-E x4/x8 can it plug a x1 PCI-E Card?

ML350 G5 PCI-E x4/x8 can it plug a x1 PCI-E Card?

Hi all,

My company using HP ML350 G5 server, it had a build-in NC373i multifunctional NIC ..

But since some reason, we need using Symantec BESR, it not support it ...

So we want to buy a new NIC, Now finded the Intel PRO 1000 Series, but it is using PCI-E x1 interface where the HP ML350 G5 is x4/x8 interface....

I am wonder do the x4/x8 port can plug-in a x1 card no problems? Or I need buy the x4/x8 interface PCI-E Card only (It is very expensive on x4 interface)

Thank you.

Hi,

physically the x1 PCIe can be plugged in x4 slot.

The problem is that noone can guarantee that this NIC will work with the ML350 g5.
Can be that there are IRQ or other conflicts.
