NI PXIe-8370, PCIe-8371, PXI-GPIB upgrade

I was using NI PXIe-8105 embedded controller in my NI PXIe-1062Q chassis but the speed is too slow.  Recently I have acquired the controller card PXIe-8370 (about 800MB/s; pcie x 4).  The PCIe-8371 card can be put  in my computer PCIe x 16 slot (for VGA card) and function perfectly. Mother Board is Gigabyte H77N ITX version. OS is WIN7 64bit version and both the NI and audio precision system two cascade is working fine with an I5-3570K CPU.  The fan noise of the NI chassis is even lower then before and the power loading is lesser without the embedded controller!

.

Without the embedded controller, I lost some I/O like parallel port, GPIB etc… and thus I have to get one more PXI-GPIB card.  Later I find out my Agilent 82357B USB – GPIB controller is also working fine in with NI system.  In the past, I plug the USB into PXIe-8105 but cannot make it work properly!  Thus the PXI-GPIB card become excess!
