10 GbE question on 2900-48G

I see pro curve 2900-48G has 4 10 GbE connections, two X2 and two CX4.

I would like to connect the two 2900's together using all 4 10GbE connections 9both X2 and CX4). Is that possible? Would it use LACP to achieve this?

Basically I will have two racks with 32 nodes each rack doing a lot of network i/o, and am thinking to put a 2900 in each rack and hook all the hosts together by connecting both 2900's up to each other. It seems that will allow sufficient bandwidth between the two switches.

Any insight appreciated!

I can't see why not, I think it should work. You should be able to use either LACP or a standard 'trunk'.
