WS-SUP720-3B and 10G compatibility

Answered Question

Im trying to find information on using sup720-3b and use 10g line cards.  Can anyone show me a link of a compatibility matrix for 3B versus 3C?

I have this problem too.

Overall, I am trying to find any information if I need to upgrade my sups to 720-3Cs or can I cost save and upgrade the IOS on my 720-3Bs.  Would a 6716-10G line card be compatibable with a 720-3B?

You will be fine with a Sup720-3B. From the same doc i sent a link to -
