These sound levels were measured in controlled acoustical environments according to procedures specified by ISO7779 and are reported in accordance with ISO 9296.
The declared acoustic sound levels are based on the specified configurations, which may change depending on configuration/conditions.
SXM configuration: two 270W processors, thirty-two 64 GB DIMMs, eight HDD or SSD, NVIDIA SXM4 400W, two 1P HDR (CX6 card)
GPU Typical configuration: two 205W processors, thirty-two 64 GB DIMMs, Diskless with M.2 or any disk, 4 or 8 NVIDIA A100, INTEL E810-DA2 10/25GbE SFP28 2-port Ethernet Adapter
GPU Max configuration: two 270W processors, thirty-two 64 GB DIMMs, eight NVMe, 4 or 8 NVIDIA A40s, Mellanox ConnectX-6 Lx 10/25GbE SFP28 2-port
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.
ThinkSystem SR670 V2 complies with ASHRAE Class A2 specifications. System performance may be impacted when operating temperature is outside AHSARE A2 specification.
ASHARE Class A2: 10°C to 35°C (50°F to 95°F); the maximum ambient temperature decreases by 1°C for every 300 m (984 ft) increase in altitude above 900 m (2,953 ft).
Server off: 5°C to 45°C (41°F to 113°F)
Shipment/storage: -40°C to 60°C (-40°F to 140°F)
Adjust ambient temperature when specific components are installed: Keep ambient temperature to 30°C or lower when one or more of the following components are installed.
NVIDIA H100 NVL/H100/H800/L40S PCIe GPU adapter
NVIDIA ConnectX-7 dual-port NDR200 or single-port NDR400 with Active Optical Cable installed in the PCIe slot 15, 16, 20, or 21
NVIDIA HGX A100 80GB 500W 4-GPU Board
Maximum altitude: 3,050 m (10,000 ft)
Relative Humidity (non-condensing):
ASHRAE Class A2: 8% to 80%; maximum dew point: 21°C (70°F)
Shipment/storage: 8% to 90%
Airborne particulates and reactive gases acting alone or in combination with other environmental factors such as humidity or temperature might pose a risk to the server. For information about the limits for particulates and gases, see Particulate contamination.
The server is designed for standard data center environment and recommended to be placed in industrial data center.
