Network Interface Cards

Hi,

I would like to install 16 to 20x network interface cards on a server. Physically the hardware has enough slots to support 5x Quad NICs. Do you guys know of any limitation with Server 2008 r2 or Server 2012 with the amount of NIC that can be installed?

Thanks

I've gone with 10 NICs on W2003 before; I would suspect that 20 wouldn't be a problem with W2008+...

This link seems to indicate you might run into resource issues at 4xquad port Intel NICs based upon the i340 chip:
