|3 Drive activity LED (green)||7 GPU-L2A assembly|
|4 Drive status LED (yellow)|
1 Front panel
For more information about the front panel, see Front panel.
2 2.5-inch drive bays (bay 0 to 7)
Install 2.5-inch drives to these bays. See Install a 2.5-inch hot-swap drive.
3 Drive activity LED (green)
Each hot-swap drive comes with an activity LED. When this LED is flashing, it indicates that the drive is in use.
4 Drive status LED (yellow)
The drive status LED indicates the following status:
The LED is lit: the drive has failed.
The LED is flashing slowly (once per second): the drive is being rebuilt.
The LED is flashing rapidly (three times per second): the drive is being identified.
5 Front I/O module
For more information about the front I/O module, see Front I/O module.
6 PCIe slots 1-2
Install PCIe adapters, particularly network adapters to these slots. These PCIe slots support the following configuration:
PCIe slot 1-2, PCIe x16, FH/HL
7 GPU-L2A assembly
Install the GPU-L2A assembly in this space. A GPU-L2A assembly consists of the Lenovo NeptuneTM liquid-to-air (L2A) hybrid cooling module and the SXM GPU board, which contains one of the following:
One set of HGX A100 40GB 400W 4-GPU Board
One set of HGX A100 80GB 500W 4-GPU BoardAttentionWhen the HGX A100 80GB 500W 4-GPU Board is installed and if the ambient temperature is above 30°C, the GPUs may be instructed by the system to enter an emergency power reduction state whereby GPU performance will be impacted.
