I'll be iritated if it's the chassis, as the previous NM here had HP design our previous network infrastructure themselves.
    You can connect as many 10G connections as your modules will take but if more than two get max'd out then blocking will occur.

    That's useful to know, especially as I intend to put it in service in our second site during the summer. thanks.

    Talking about HP Procurve 5400 / 8200
    There are 3 different hardware versions with of course different performance. V3 has recently been released.

    5400 / 8200 V1
    5400 / 8200 V2
    5400R ZL2 == ~ V3

    Lots of love for HP here and I've used their kit before. It's very good and reliable.

    I'm using extreme at the moment and it is amazing!

    Something like the summit x670 will give you 10gb at the core with the option of adding 40gb ports later or a stacking module.

    The x480s or x440s for your edge. One other great things about extreme is that the poe switches are the same depth as the non poe switches.

    The last and maybe greatest feature... They're purple!
