Default 68 or 80 ;in SCSI card?

Thanks to all that have already helped me with this, but the product info on this SCSI card at Newegg is sparse, and it does not say whether it is 68 pin or 80 pin, can anyone tell by looking at the pictures they provide?

well 4 times 17 = 68

why dont you surf to the manufacturers freakin website and check with the source, info is always better from the source

secondly, I think you will find that most cards are 68 pin these days and if you want 80 you need an adapter, as far as I know the only big difference tween 68 and 80 pin is usually hot swapping ability as far as performance goes, but that should be verified, im not 100% sure on that

no all of them as in all the scsi connectors on THAT board, as indicated by the spec sheet located in the product literature link at LSI's website

reason I mentioned that is because occasionally SOME scsi boards, NOT ALL, will have different external and internal connectors

that board has 4 connectors, 2 external, 2 internal, ALL are 68 pin

Too bad.
Did you say that there are adapters from 80 pin to 68? If there are, can you please link me?
