Cisco X2-10GB-CX4

According to the Cisco 10-Gigabit Ethernet Transceiver Modules Compatibility Matrix the only 10GE module with copper interface that will plug into a 3750E is the X2-10GB-CX4.  This has an InfiniBand 4X connector and is designed to use CX4 cable.

I'm trying to find a 10GE NIC that is compatible with this module.  Has anyone here successfully connected something to this module?

Do I need a 10 GE NIC or a Host Channel Adapter such as this?

Is the Infiniband 4x connector also known as CX4/SFF-8470?

Any help you can provide will be most appreciated.

I think I found another solution.  I believe I can plug a CVR-X2-SFP10G converter into the X2 slot and then use a SFP-H10GB-CU1M cable to connect to an SFP+ 10GE NIC in the server.

Can anyone confirm that this will work?

I've moved over to the Cisco support community so no need to respond because I won't see it.
