NC7170 - what PCI-X slot?

I am adding a NC7170 to an ML350 with various PCI-X slots: 64/66, 64/100, 64/133.

Which is the best slot to use and why please?

Install it in the 64/133 slot as the card is a 64/133 card. If it is installed in any of the other slots then its performance will be limited to that of the particular slot.

Thanks Mike. I decided on the 64/133 and the card has run fine. As I had all the slots available, I chose the fastest and thought that I could always work down if there was a problem!

It is nice to know that I chose the correct slot.
