Fan replacement

Use the following procedures to remove and install a fan. Fans are at the front of the server behind the front cover.

Two types of fans are supported:
  • 60 mm x 38mm, 16K internal hot-swap fans (01CX965)

  • 60 mm x 38mm, 19K internal hot-swap fans (01PG490)

  • Different fan types cannot be mixed within a system. All fans must be either 16K fans or 19K fans.

  • Before upgrading fans from 16K to 19K, you must make sure that the system has version 2 of the ThinkSystem 2-CPU, 24-DIMM, Compute System Board (01CV978) installed in each compute tray.
