Will long ethernet card fit in DL380 with redundant power supplies?

l'm building some new firewalls based on the DL380 using checkpoint secure platform (SPLAT), and need to install 2 4 port ethernet cards.

The servers arrive next week, and l have the 4 port ethernet cards (the ZYNX ZX346Q) and l see it's about 9" long, very long for a PCI card.

Will it fit? Will 2 fit? Will they not make it due to the redundant power supplies?

Thanks in advance gurus.

I'm assuming the server is a G3 or a G4. The longest pci adapter which can fit is approximately 12 inches (all three slots).

So these nics should fit fine.
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..

Thanks,

The servers arrived yesterday and the cards fit fit fine (12" does seem to be the max)

You saved me pannicking and rushing out to buy $2,000 of other cards which l wouldn't have needed.
