Hi Jonathan,

thanks for the reply. 

As I said, I have looked for a firmware upgrade here. From that side
http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/xeon/c600/x9drt-hibqf.cfm
which I got from the technical support there is no upgrade available. The 
version I can download here is 2.10.700 which is the one I have installed.

Just to complicate things, I cannot find the PSID  SM_2181000001000 on the link 
you gave me. Unfortunately, the other information on that and similar sides 
are confusing as well as I would not know which exact card I got here. 

I am actually using the Mellanox mlxburn program here as I am unable to get 
the information I want with the OFED mstflint.

Any ideas?

By the way, do you have a card or is it mounted on the motherboard?

All the best and thanks for your suggestions (I am looking into the cables as 
well)!

Jörg
