Note
  • These sound levels were measured in controlled acoustical environments according to procedures specified by ISO7779 and are reported in accordance with ISO 9296.

  • Government regulations (such as those prescribed by OSHA or European Community Directives) may govern noise level exposure in the workplace and may apply to you and your server installation. The actual sound pressure levels in your installation depend upon a variety of factors, including the number of racks in the installation; the size, materials, and configuration of the room; the noise levels from other equipment; the room ambient temperature, and employee's location in relation to the equipment. Further, compliance with such government regulations depends on a variety of additional factors, including the duration of employees' exposure and whether employees wear hearing protection. Lenovo recommends that you consult with qualified experts in this field to determine whether you are in compliance with the applicable regulations.

Environment

ThinkSystem SR665 V3 complies with ASHRAE Class A2 specifications with most configurations, and depending on the hardware configuration, also complies with ASHRAE Class A3 and Class A4 specifications. System performance may be impacted when the operating temperature is outside ASHRAE A2 specification.

Depending on the hardware configuration, SR665 V3 server also complies with ASHRAE Class H1 specification. System performance may be impacted when the operating temperature is outside ASHRAE H1 specification.

The restrictions to ASHRAE support are as follows:
  • The ambient temperature must be limited to 35°C or lower if the server has any of the following components:
    • Broadcom 57416 10GBASE-T 2-port OCP

    • Broadcom 57454 10GBASE-T 4-port OCP

    • Network interface cards (NICs) at a rate greater than or equal to 100 GB

    • Parts with AOC and at the rate of 25 GB

  • The ambient temperature must be limited to 30°C or lower if the server has any of the following components:
    • 24 x 2.5" or 12 x 3.5" front bay with middle or rear bay

    • GPU (except front 24 x 2.5" configurations and configurations with Group E processors)

    • Parts with AOC and at a rate greater than 25 GB

    • 9654(P)/9554(P)/9174F/9754/9734/9684X processors using performance heat sinks in a front 8 x 2.5"/8 x 3.5"/16 x 2.5" standard configuration.

    • Group E processors using advanced heat sinks in a front 12 x 3.5"/24 x 2.5" configuration without middle/rear bay

  • The ambient temperature must be limited to 25°C or lower if the server has any of the following components:
    • 9274F/9374F/9474F using performance heat sinks in a front 8 x 2.5"/8 x 3.5"/16 x 2.5" standard configuration

    • 9654(P)/9554(P)/9174F/9754/9734 using performance heat sinks in a front 24 x 2.5" configuration without middle/rear bay

    • 9654(P)/9554(P)/9174F/9754/9734/9684X in a front 8 x 2.5"/8 x 3.5"/16 x 2.5" + GPU configuration

    • 24 x 2.5" front bay + GPU

    • Gen5 7.68 TB or larger capacity NVMe in a configuration with middle/rear bay

    • Group A (240 W < cTDP ≤ 300 W) processor in a configuration with middle/rear bay

    • ThinkSystem 256GB TruDDR5 4800MHz (8Rx4) 3DS RDIMM-A v1

For detailed thermal information, see Thermal rules.

Note
When the ambient temperature is greater than the supported max temperature (ASHARE A4 45°C), the server will shut down. The server will not power on again until the ambient temperature falls within the supported temperature range.
