GPU replacement

Use this information to remove and install a GPU adapter.

To prevent potential thermal issues, change the Misc setting in the BIOS from Option3 (default value) to Option1 if the following two conditions are met:
  • The server is equipped with a GPU adapter.

  • The UEFI firmware version is AFE128B or later.

For the method of changing the Misc setting, see
