Server features and specifications

The following information is a summary of the server features and specifications. Depending on the model, some features might not be available, or some specifications might vary.

Microprocessor (depending on the model):
  • One Intel® quad-core (Xeon® E3-1200 v5 or v6 series) or dual-core (Pentium® series, Celeron® series, or Core i3 series) microprocessor
  • Multi-chip package microprocessor architecture
  • Designed for Land Grid Array (LGA) 1151 socket
  • Scalable up to four cores
  • Support Intel Flex Memory Technology
For the following microprocessors, the frequency will be reduced slightly if the Choose Operating Mode is set as Efficiency - Favor Performance in BIOS. It is an expected behavior for Intel thermal design power (TDP) feature. If you want the microprocessor to run at its maximum frequency, set the Choose Operating Mode to be Maximum Performance in BIOS.
  • Intel Core-i3 7300T

  • Intel Core-i3 7100T

  • Intel Pentium G4600T

  • Intel Pentium G4560T

  • Intel Celeron G3930T

For the specific type and speed of the server microprocessor, view the information in the Setup Utility program. See Using the Setup Utility program.

  • Minimum: 4 GB
  • Maximum: 64 GB
  • Types: PC4-17000 (dual-rank), 2133 MHz or 2400 MHz, error correcting code (ECC), double-data-rate 4 (DDR4) unbuffered dual inline memory modules (DIMMs) only
  • Slots: four DIMM slots, two-way interleaved
  • If your server comes with 2400 MHz memory modules and a microprocessor that supports a maximum of 2133 MHz memory, the data rate of your memory modules will be limited to 2133 MHz.

  • If you mix memory modules with different frequencies in the same server, all the memory modules run at the lowest frequency.

  • When a 4 GB or more of memory (physical or logical) is installed, part of the memory is reserved for various system resources and is unavailable to the operating system. The amount of memory that is reserved for system resources depends on the operating system, the server configuration, and the configured PCI options.

Optical drive:
  • UltraSlim DVD-ROM combo
  • Multi-burner
Hard disk drive expansion bays (depending on the model):
  • Four 2.5-inch hot-swap SAS/SATA hard disk drive bays
  • Four 2.5-inch simple-swap SAS/SATA hard disk drive bays
  • Eight 2.5-inch hot-swap SAS/SATA hard disk drive bays
  • Eight 2.5-inch simple-swap SAS/SATA hard disk drive bays
  • Four 3.5-inch hot-swap SAS/SATA hard disk drive bays
  • Four 3.5-inch simple-swap SATA hard disk drive bays
As a general consideration, do not mix standard 512 byte and advanced 4 KB format drives in the same Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) array because doing so might lead to potential performance issues.
Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) Express expansion slots:

The server supports two PCIe riser slots on the riser card:

  • Slot 1: dedicated to the ServeRAID M1210 SAS/SATA controller
  • Slot 2: supports one PCI Express Gen3 x8 half-length, full-height adapter
Power supply (depending on the model):
  • One fixed 300-watt power supply
  • One or two 460-watt power supplies (hot-swap when two installed)
RAID controller:

ServeRAID C110 capabilities that support RAID levels 0, 1, 5, and 10

Integrated functions:
  • Integrated Management Module 2.1 (IMM2.1), which consolidates multiple management functions in a single chip
  • Intel i350-AM2 Gigabit Ethernet controller and Wake on LAN support
  • Universal Serial Bus (USB):
    • Two USB 3.0 connectors on the front
      Due to the limitation of USB 3.0 connectors, the front USB connectors are not usable for the VMware ESXi 5.5 hypervisor.
    • Two USB 3.0 connectors on the rear
    • One USB 3.0 internal connector on the system board for the USB hypervisor key

  • Four-port integrated SATA controller
  • One-port integrated SATA port for the optical drive (optional)

  • One serial port header (functional with Serial Port Upgrade Kit installed)
  • One video graphics array (VGA) connector on the rear
Video controller (integrated into IMM2.1):
  • Matrox G200eR2
  • SVGA compatible video controller
  • AAVICA hardware video compression
  • Video memory not expandable
  • Maximum video resolution: 1600 x 1200 at 75 Hz

  • 1U
  • Height: 43 mm (1.69 inches)
  • Depth: 576 mm (22.68 inches)
  • Width:
    • Without Electronic Industries Association (EIA) brackets: 434.6 mm (17.11 inches)
    • With EIA brackets: 482 mm (18.98 inches)
  • Maximum weight: 13.8 kg (30.36 lb)
Acoustical noise emissions:

Sound power: 5.4 bels for both idle and operating environment

In the idle environment, the server is only running the operating system. In the operating environment, the microprocessor is active and the TDP is occupied 50%.

The noise emission level stated is the declared upper limit sound power level, in bels, for a random sample of machines. All measurements are made in accordance with ISO 7779 and reported in conformance with ISO 9296.

  • Air temperature:
    • Server on:
      • Server models with a lower-than-55 W CPU: 5°C to 40°C (41.0°F to 104.0°F); altitude: 0 m to 950 m (0 ft to 3117 ft) The maximum system temperature decreases by 1°C (1.8°F) with every 175 m (574 ft) increase in altitude above 950 m.

      • Server models with a higher-than-55 W CPU: 10°C to 35°C (50.0°F to 95.0°F); altitude: 0 m to 950 m (0 ft to 3117 ft) The maximum system temperature decreases by 1°C (1.8°F) with every 175 m (574 ft) increase in altitude above 950 m.

    • Server off: 5°C to 43°C (41°F to 109.4°F)
    • Shipping: -40°C to 60°C (-40°F to 140°F)
  • Maximum altitude: 3050 m (10000 ft)

  • Humidity:

    • Server off: 8% to 85%; maximum dew point: 27°C (80.6°F)

  • Particulate contamination:

    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.

When the operating temperature enhancement kit is installed, the temperature response for the fan speed control is more accurate.

Heat output:
  • Minimum configuration: 143 BTU per hour (42 watts)
  • Maximum configuration: 710 BTU per hour (208 watts)

  • Sine-wave input (50 Hz to 60 Hz) required
  • Input voltage low range:
    • Minimum: 100 V ac
    • Maximum: 127 V ac
  • Input voltage high range:
