The new server was giving me network errors on large file transfers in testing (SYS0054) and thought I'd install a more-modern NIC (and more tested NIC drivers) and get the integrated Broadcom 5751 ethernet chipset out of the equation. So I bought three Intel Pro1000e NICs from eBay for a very good price, because they have low-profile (commercial rack server) mounting brackets, and nobody sells the std bracket for anywhere near a reasonable price. I figured, correctly, that I could make it work.

Some No. 4 screws, a bit of Dremel work, a little filing, Presto!

Of course, now I don't need them, as I fixed the underlying problem of the network issue, but it was fun anyway.

It seems to be getting harder and harder to get things that just fit.
