dl360 change e400i to p440i

Our DL360 G5 came with a e200i controller. We are now trying to upgrade to use all 6 bays and have purchased the extra cable the quickspecs call for to utilize bays 5 and 6. Now we find that the e200i does not have the extra cable connector that would work with the cable.

All of the p400i controllers in the quickspecs seem to be pci-x cards and there is no way the cable (399546-b21) will reach to a PCI-X slot. Is there a P400i controller card that will REPLACE the e200i controller? If so what is the part number. If not, is there a different cable that will reach to a p400i in the PCI-x slot.

Thanks

Sorry I fat-fingered the subject. The controller is truly a E200i and it looks like we need to have a P400i
