    Currently on a 2010 5,1

    1 5870, was empty for awhile, fan got super noisy, picked up another one from the Apple Store courtesy of Apple Care (smart buy).

    2 empty, no action or exciting stories from this slot.

    3 empty since last week, cheap 1 lane eSATA card from OWC kept dropping the connection with a Mercury Rack Pro, got mad, threw into the trash.

    4 empty since last night, have been loosing keyboard on rear USB ports, removed the 1int/4ext USB2 card from OWC, keyboard works now, will reinstall tonight to see if a reset helped, otherwise will throw away.
