****************
[Bob Zelin] "David -
Does it really HURT YOU when you get a new product, and it comes with a 1 or 2 page "installation guide", which is a single sheet of paper, if you READ THE F#$%ING manual?

From the Sonnet Tempo-X eSATA 8 installation guide (page 2 - IN BOLD HIGHLIGHTED PRINT to make sure that you read it !) -

Support Note for Power MAC G5 Users: The Tempo-X eSATA 8 card many not be installed in slot 4 (closest to the drive bays), and may only be installed in slot 2 or 3. Users should be aware that when certain standard 33MHz PCI adaptor cards are installed along with the Tempo-X card in slots 2 and 3, the Tempo-X card's performance may be adversely affected". "

******************

First, thank you Justin for your thoughtful and helpful reply.

Bob,

Actually, I can read quite well. Can you? I politely inquired as to positioning my Tempo-X 4+4 card. I don't own a Tempo-X eSATA 8 card. My owner's manual reads (in bold highlighted text to make sure one reads it):

"Support Note for Power Mac G5 Users: .... The Tempo-X card may be installed in any of the slots and perform equally well under most circumstances. Users should be aware that when certain standard 33MHz PCI adaptor cards are installed along with the Tempo-X card in the 100MHz slots (slots 2 and 3), the Temp-X card's performance may be adversely affected."

I believe I've read (on Barefeats I think) that the "8" card has a physical problem fitting into slot 4. The design of the card causes a component to come into contact with the motherboard. That is why the eSATA 8 card cannot be used in slot 4, but that is not an issue with the 4+4 card.
