Yea! That's the one! Very high density. The only downside is the wieght of
the cable versus the connector. I have seen where the screw downs for the
cable have broken off.

I misrepresented my listing. There are *4* of the black EMC style cables
and 3 Sun ones. Same price, of course.

The only board I actually have with those connectors in any of my machines
is perhaps a single smart array.

These were with some other stuff. To get item A and B, I had to buy A thru
ZZZZZ as a lot.
