Low profile nic brackets - source?

    Hi Folks I just got a few nics for some servers, but of course they are full height
    I was wondering if anyone had any ideas where I can pick up some low profile ones (ideally in Ireland) but UK would be ok as well.

    Its just the brackets I want obviously! :)

    Possibly a bit late to be of any use, and indeed not being of any use really - but they're different brand to brand. Even different Intel i210 cards from different vendors have different port positions. And you really shouldn't be using anything else in a server :pac:

    Specifically, the standard chipsets on cheap cards, Realtek 8169s, are cack and will eventually cause you trouble.
