2x Chelsio S320E-CX4 10GBe cards

In order to enable 10gb Ethernet between the VM host and the NAS, I ordered a pair of dual-port 10GBe cards and some DAC Twinax cables. However, when they arrive I realize I accidentally ordered the Infiniband version of the cards, which is an older, outdated technology that doesn't work reliably under FreeNAS. Time for yet another RMA!
