10 x 2.5'' NVMe (liquid cooling)

Use this section to understand the cable routing of 10 NVMe 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'' or 3.5'' drives, refer to Cable routing for backplane power.

To connect cables for M.2 drives, refer to M.2 drive backplane.

The following illustration and table show the cabling between backplane and processor board for onboard configuration.
