RAID 730-8i 1G Cache SAS/SATA adapter is not available for North America.
RAID 530-8i SAS/SATA adapter cannot be mixed with RAID 730-8i 1G Cache SAS/SATA adapter.
RAID 730-8i 2G Flash SAS/SATA adapter cannot be mixed with RAID 730-8i 1G Cache SAS/ SATA adapter or RAID 930-8i SAS/SATA adapter.
The RAID 940 adapters can be mixed with the ThinkSystem 440-8i SAS/SATA PCIe Gen4 12Gb HBA and the ThinkSystem 440-16i SAS/SATA PCIe Gen4 12Gb HBA.
Mixing of RAID/HBA 430/530/730/930 adapters (Gen 3) and RAID/HBA 440/540/940 adapters (Gen 4) in the same system is not allowed.
RAID 930/940 series or 9350 series adapters require a RAID flash power module.
RAID 5350/9350 series adapters cannot be mixed with HBA/RAID 430/440/530/540/730/930/940 series SAS/SATA adapters.
One processor: three system fans (including one redundant fan)
Two processors: four system fans (including one redundant fan)
If your server comes with only one processor, three system fans (fan 1 to fan 3) are adequate to provide proper cooling. However, you must keep the locations for fan 4 occupied by a fan filler to ensure proper airflow.
One or two hot-swap power supplies for redundancy support
550-watt ac 80 PLUS Platinum
750-watt ac 80 PLUS Platinum
750-watt ac 80 PLUS Titanium
Acoustical noise emissions
Sound power levels, idle
4.9 bels, minimum
5.3 bels, typical
6.1 bels, maximum
Sound power levels, operating
4.9 bels, minimum
5.5 bels, typical
6.2 bels, maximum
These sound power levels are measured in controlled acoustical environments according to procedures specified by ISO 7779 and are reported in accordance with ISO 9296.
The declared acoustic noise levels are based on specified configurations and they may change depending on configurations/conditions.
The declared acoustic noise levels may increase greatly, if high-power components are installed, for example, some high-power NICs, CPUs, and GPUs.
Minimal configuration for debugging
One processor in processor socket 1
One DIMM in slot 3
One power supply
Three system fans (fan 1 to fan 3)
Sine-wave input (50–60 Hz) required
550-watt ac and 750-watt ac Platinum input voltage range:
Low range: 100–127 V ac
High range: 200–240 V ac
750-watt ac Titanium input voltage range: 200–240 V ac
240 V dc input (input range: 180-300 V dc) is ONLY supported in Chinese Mainland.
Power supplies with 240 V dc are not hot-swappable. To remove the power cord, ensure you have turned off the server or disconnected the dc power sources at the breaker panel.
In order for the ThinkSystem products to operate error free in both a DC or AC electrical environment, a TN-S earthing system which complies to 60364-1 IEC 2005 standard has to be present or installed.
ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers).
This server is designed for standard data center environment and recommended to be placed in industrial data center.
ASHRAE class A2: 10–35°C (50–95°F); when the altitude exceeds 900 m (2953 ft), the maximum ambient temperature value decreases by 1°C (1.8°F) with every 300 m (984 ft) of altitude increase.
ASHRAE class A3: 5–40°C (41–104°F); when the altitude exceeds 900 m (2953 ft), the maximum ambient temperature value decreases by 1°C (1.8°F) with every 175 m (574 ft) of altitude increase.
ASHRAE class A4: 5–45°C (41–113°F); when the altitude exceeds 900 m (2953 ft), the maximum ambient temperature value decreases by 1°C (1.8°F) with every 125 m (410 ft) of altitude increase.
Server off: 5–45°C (41–113°F)
Shipping or storage: -40–60°C (-40–140°F)
Maximum altitude: 3050 m (10 000 ft)
Relative humidity (non-condensing):
ASHRAE class A2: 8%–80%; maximum dew point: 21°C (70°F)
ASHRAE class A3: 8%–85%; maximum dew point: 24°C (75°F)
ASHRAE class A4: 8%–90%; maximum dew point: 24°C (75°F)
Shipping or storage: 8%–90%
Airborne particulates and reactive gases acting alone or in combination with other environmental factors such as humidity or temperature might pose a risk to the server. For information about the limits for particulates and gases, see Particulate contamination.
Your server complies with ASHRAE class A2 specifications. The server performance might be impacted when the operating temperature is outside the ASHRAE A2 specifications. Depending on the hardware configuration, some server models comply with ASHRAE class A3 and class A4 specifications. To comply with ASHRAE class A3 and class A4 specifications, the server models must meet the following hardware configuration requirements at the same time:
Two power supplies must be installed.
No system fan fails.
Important information about EU ecodesign requirements
To meet the EU ecodesign requirements for energy-related products (ErP) Lot 9, your server must meet the following requirements:
Minimum memory: 16 GB
If your server is configured with one processor, these processors are not supported: Intel Xeon 3104, 3106, 3204, 4108, 4109T, 4110, 4112, 5122, 5222, 8156, and 8256.
Particulate contamination Attention: Airborne particulates (including metal flakes or particles) and reactive gases acting alone or in combination with other environmental factors such as humidity or temperature might pose a risk to the device that is described in this document.
