A tangent.  SFP and SFP+ (et al. since this is 10GbE I suspect your 
cards have SFP+ transceiver slots) are transceiver specifications.  They 
are not cable specifications.  So "SFP cable" is something of a 
misnomer.  A transceiver in an SFP formfactor may then have an RJ45, or 
FibreOptic, or what not connection, or it could be "hardwired" as part 
of a (slightly misnamed, IMO) DAC (Direct Attach Cable).  And then with 
the fibre optic connection, that then may be short-range or long-range 
etc optics.  The RJ45 connection may be specced as 10GbT or 1 GbT etc.
