10 x 2.5'' SAS/SATA (liquid cooling)
Use this section to understand the cable routing of 10 SAS/SATA front drives for liquid cooling configuration with 10 x 2.5'' AnyBay front backplane installed.
To connect cables for a 7mm drive backplane, refer to 7mm drive backplane.
To connect power cables for a backplane for standard 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch drives, refer to Cable routing for backplane power.
Cable routing for onboard configuration
The following illustrations and tables show the mapping relationship between backplane connectors and processor board connectors for onboard configuration.
The following figure illustrates the cable routing for the configuration of 10 front SAS/SATA drives bays. Connections between connectors: 1 ↔ 1, 2 ↔ 2, 3 ↔ 3, ... n ↔ n.
|Front BP (SAS)||1 SAS 0||1 SATA 0|
|2 SAS 1, SAS 2||2 SATA 1, SATA 2|
Cable routing with an SFF HBA/RAID adapter
The following tables show the mapping relationship between backplane connectors and a 16i SFF HBA/RAID adapter (Gen 3 or Gen 4).
|Front BP (SAS)||1 SAS 0, SAS 1||1 C0|
|2 SAS 2||2 C1|
|Front BP (SAS)||1 SAS 0, SAS 1||1 C0, C1|
|2 SAS 2||2 C2|
