Will this PCIe 8 lane Raid card Adaptec 2405

Work in this Motherboard Crosshair Formula IV

Having never seen a PCIe slot Im not sure and just want to check before ordering.



What essentialy I am looking for is to find out if this PICe x8 card will work in this motherboard on a PCIe level. I am satisfied that ESXi will work on this MB and with this Raid card. Apparently some MB only allow Graphics cards to be used in certain PCIe slots hence my caution. See Why does the Adaptec PCI Express card not work in a PCIe x16 slot?

  • That looks a lot like a desktop motherboard. Is this really a serverfault question? – Bill Weiss Jun 28 '10 at 18:50
