This section provides cable routing information for the 7mm drives.
The following uses the 7mm drives installed on riser 2 as an example for illustration. The cable routing for 7mm drives installed on riser 1 is similar.
Power cable routing

Signal cable routing
The 7mm drive backplane supports SATA, NVMe, or RAID cable connection.

Figure 3. NVMe cable routing
The following illustration shows four NVMe cable connection options, but the four options are mutually exclusive. Select one of them based on your scenario.
|Signal connector on the 7mm drive backplane||1 PCIe 1|
|2 PCIe 3 (one processor installed)|
|3 PCIe 8|
|4 PCIe 10|
