That doesn't matter very much, because the harddisk of each Typhoon node
is mounted at a place blocking all PCI-whatever slots.  Even, if you
remove the HDD frame and place disks somewhere else or don't have them
at all there is nothing to mount a riser card and an extension card,
external connections go to the front, you have to use it without front
panel to connect cables...  It's not very extensible.

Kind regards,
