8 x 2.5'' U.3 drives with 10 x 2.5'' AnyBay backplane (liquid cooling)

Use this section to understand the cable routing for eight U.3 drives for liquid cooling configuration with 10 x 2.5 Anybay backplane and one processor 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.
