7mm trayless drives

See this topic to learn how to do the cable routing corresponding to the system configuration.

7mm SATA drives

Follow the cable routing plan corresponding to the planned configuration.

Without AnyBay drive cage

Table 1. Cable routing for four 7mm drives (SATA, without AnyBay drive cage)
 FromTo
17mm drives (Drive 0, 2)Drive power connector 2
  • 1a 300mm chassis
  • 1b 360mm chassis
27mm drives (Drive 1, 3)Drive power connector 1
37mm drives (Drive 0 to 3)SATA connector (0 to 3)

 FromTo
17mm drives (Drive 0 to 3)Drive power connector 2
  • 1a 300mm chassis
  • 1b 360mm chassis
27mm drives (Drive 0 to 3)C0 connector on RAID adapter (PCIe Slot 6)
Note
When routing cables along the side of the drive cage, make sure to route the 2 power cable into the clips before 1 signal cable.
