Processor options

The SR650 V2 supports processors in the third-generation Intel Xeon Scalable Processor family. The server supports one or two processors.

Topics in this section:

Processor options

The table below lists the processors that are supported.

Supported processors have the following features:

  • Third-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors (formerly codenamed "Ice Lake")
  • 10 nm process technology
  • 8x DDR4 memory channels
  • 64x PCIe 4.0 I/O lanes available for PCIe and NVMe devices
  • 1.25 MB L2 cache per core
  • 1.5 MB or more L3 cache per core
  • Intel Deep Learning Boost, which provides built-in Artificial Intelligence (AI) acceleration with the Vector Neural Network Instruction set (VNNI). DL Boost and VNNI are designed to deliver significant, more efficient Deep Learning (Inference) acceleration for high-performance AI workloads.
  • Intel Hyper-Threading Technology, which boosts performance for multithreaded applications by enabling simultaneous multithreading within each processor core, up to two threads per core.
  • Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, which allows processor cores to run at maximum speeds during peak workloads by temporarily going beyond processor TDP.
  • Intel Virtualization Technology (includes VT-x and VT-d), which integrates hardware-level virtualization hooks that allow operating system vendors to better use the hardware for virtualization workloads.
  • Intel Speed Select Technology, supported on some processor models, enables increased core Turbo Boost frequency on specific individual cores to maximize application performance.
  • Intel Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (AVX-512), to enable acceleration of enterprise-class workloads, including databases and enterprise resource planning (ERP).
  • Up to two Intel AVX-512 Fused-Multiply Add (FMA) units
  • Intel SGX (Software Guard Extensions) and Intel TME (Total Memory Encryption) security features
  • Two or three Intel Ultra Path Interconnect (UPI) links at up to 11.2 GT/s, to maximize inter-processor communication

Some processors include a suffix letter in the processor model number:

  • N: NFV optimized
  • T: High Tcase
  • U: Single socket
  • V: High density/low power-optimized for SaaS virtualization customers
  • P: High frequency-optimized for IaaS virtualization customers
  • Y: Speed Select
  • S: Large (512GB) SGX Enclave size
  • Q: Optimized for liquid cooling

Memory tiers: All processors support up to 6TB of memory. There are no L or M suffix processors.

Options part numbers only for second processor: The option part numbers listed in the table are only for use when adding a second processor. It is not supported to upgrade any processors already installed.

Thermal requirements for processors

For thermal requirements for processors, see the Thermal Rules section in the Information Center for the SR650 V2:
https://thinksystem.lenovofiles.com/help/topic/SR650V2/thermal_rules.html?cp=4_11_7_2_1
http://id-staging.labs.lenovo.com:8787/help/topic/SR650V2/thermal_rules.html?cp=4_11_7_2_1

Memory options

The SR650 V2 uses Lenovo TruDDR4 memory and supports 16 DIMMs per processor or 32 DIMMs with two processors installed. Each processor has eight memory channels with two DIMMs per channel. With 128 GB 3DS RDIMMs installed, the SR650 V2 supports a total of 4 TB of system memory.

The SR650 V2 also supports Intel Optane Persistent Memory 200 Series, as described in the Persistent Memory section.

Memory operates at up to 3200 MHz at two DIMMs per channel, depending on the processor model selected. If the processor selected has a lower memory bus speed, then all DIMMs will operate at that lower speed.

The following table lists the memory options that are available for the server.

Lenovo TruDDR4 memory uses the highest quality components that are sourced from Tier 1 DRAM suppliers and only memory that meets the strict requirements of Lenovo is selected. It is compatibility tested and tuned to maximize performance and reliability. From a service and support standpoint, Lenovo TruDDR4 memory automatically assumes the system warranty, and Lenovo provides service and support worldwide.

4X77A08636 BA62 ThinkSystem 128GB TruDDR4 3200 MHz (2S2Rx4 1.2V) 3DS RDIMM 32 (16 per processor)

The following rules apply when selecting the memory configuration:

  • The following DIMM quantities are supported per processor: 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, and 16. Other quantities per processor are not supported.
  • The server supports RDIMMs and 3DS RDIMMs; UDIMMs and LRDIMMs are not supported
  • Mixing RDIMMs and 3DS RDIMMs is not supported
  • Mixing x4 and x8 DIMMs is supported

For best performance, consider the following:

  • Populate memory DIMMs in quantities of 8 or 16 per processor, so that all memory channels are used.
  • Populate memory channels so they all have the same total memory capacity.
  • Ensure all memory controllers on a processor socket have the same DIMM configuration.
  • All processor sockets on the same physical server should have the same DIMM configuration.

The following memory protection technologies are supported:

  • ECC
  • SDDC (for x4-based memory DIMMs; look for "x4" in the DIMM description)
  • ADDDC (for x4-based memory DIMMs)
  • Memory mirroring

Note: Memory sparing is not supported

If memory channel mirroring is used, then DIMMs must be installed in pairs or sets of three (minimum of one pair or set of three per processor), and all DIMMs in the pair or set of three must be identical in type and size. 50% of the installed capacity is available to the operating system. Memory rank sparing is not supported.

Persistent memory

The SR650 V2 server supports Intel Optane Persistent Memory 200 Series, a new class of memory and storage technology explicitly architected for data center usage. Persistent memory is an innovative technology that delivers a unique combination of affordable large memory capacity and persistence (non-volatility). It offers significantly lower latency than fetching data from SSDs, even NVMe SSDs, and offers higher capacities than system memory.

Persistent memory technology can help boost the performance of data-intensive applications such as in-memory analytics, databases, content delivery networks, and high performance computing (HPC), as well as deliver consistent service levels at scale with higher virtual machine and container density. When data is stored closer to the processor on nonvolatile media, applications can see significant overall improvement in performance.

The following table lists the ordering information for the supported persistent memory modules.

The following are the requirements when installing persistent memory (PMem) modules when installed in a two-socket server with third-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors ("Ice Lake" processors):

  • App Direct Mode and Memory Mode are supported. Mixed Mode is not supported.
  • All PMem modules operate at 3200 MHz when the installed processor runs the memory bus at 3200 MHz.
  • All installed PMem modules must be the same size. Mixing PMem modules of different capacities is not supported.
  • Maximum 8 PMem modules per processor (install 1 in each memory channel).
  • For each memory channel with both a PMem module and a memory DIMM installed, the PMem module is installed in channel slot 1 (DIMM1, closer to the processor) and the DIMM is installed in channel slot 0 (DIMM0).
  • To maximize performance, balance all memory channels
  • Both interleaved and non-interleaved modes are supported.
  • Memory mirroring is not supported with PMem modules installed
  • Ambient temperature cannot exceed 30°C

For details, including App Direct Mode and Memory Mode configuration requirements, see the Intel Optane Persistent Memory 200 Series product guide, https://lenovopress.com/LP1380

Internal storage

The SR650 V2 has three drive bay zones and supports up to 20x 3.5-inch or 40x 2.5-inch hot-swap drive bays or a combination of drive bays, depending on the selected chassis and backplane configuration. The server also supports configurations without any drive bays if desired.

The three drive bay zones are as follows:

  • Front:
    • Up to 12x 3.5-inch hot-swap bays, or
    • Up to 24x 2.5-inch hot-swap bays
  • Middle:
    • 4x 3.5-inch hot-swap bays, or
    • 8x 2.5-inch hot-swap bays
  • Rear:
    • Up to 4x 3.5-inch hot-swap bays, or
    • Up to 8x 2.5-inch hot-swap bays
    • Also supports 2x 7mm hot-swap drives bays

All drives are hot-swap and are accessible from the front, from the rear, or from drive bays that are located in the middle of the server (accessible when you remove the top cover of the server).

The server also supports one or two M.2 drives, installed in an M.2 adapter internal to the server.

In this section:

NVMe drive support

The SR650 V2 supports NVMe drives to maximize storage performance.

  • Up to 24 NVMe drives without oversubscription (that is, each x4 drive has a full x4 (4 lanes) connection to the processor)
    • All installed in front bays
    • 12 drives connected to onboard NVMe ports, 12 connected to 3 retimer cards installed in PCIe x16 slots
  • Up to 32 NVMe drives with a 2:1 oversubscription (that is, each x4 drive has a x2 connection (2 lanes) to the processor)
    • 24 NVMe drives in the front bays
    • 8 NVMe drives in the mid bays
    • All drives connected to 4 NVMe switch adapters (3 front, 1 mid)
  • Up to 12 NVMe drives in a 3.5-inch drive configuration
    • All installed in front bays
    • All drives connected on onboard NVMe ports

Riser 3 support: The use of the onboard NVMe ports may be mutually exclusive with Riser 3, as these use the same PCIe connectors. See the System architecture section.

The specifics of these configurations are covered in the Supported drive bay combinations and Controller selections sections.

The tables in those sections indicate the number of NVMe drives in each configuration plus the subscription ratio. The subscription ratio is the number of PCIe lanes from the processor compared to the number of lanes to the drives. A ratio of 1:1 means all drives get the full number of lanes they need to maximize drive performance (currently 4 lanes per drive). A ratio of 1:2 means each drive only gets the half the bandwidth from the processor.

In addition, the SR650 V2 supports two 7mm NVMe drives for use as boot drives. These two drives are connected via separate RAID controller connected to a single PCIe 3.0 x2 host interface. See the 7mm drives section for details.

The RAID 940-8i and RAID 940-16i adapters also support NVMe through a feature named Tri-Mode support (or Trimode support). This feature enables the use of NVMe U.3 drives at the same time as SAS and SATA drives. Cabling of the controller to the backplanes is the same as with SAS/SATA drives, and the NVMe drives are connected via a PCIe x1 link to the controller. Such support provides greater flexibility and allows the use of the low-latency and high-IOPS benefits of NVMe drives connected to a standard RAID adapter. Tri-Mode is supported with U.3 NVMe drives in either 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch form factor.

Tri-Mode requires U.3 drives: Only NVMe drives with a U.3 interface are supported. U.2 drives are not supported. See the Internal drive options section for the U.3 drives supported by the server.

Front drive bays

The front drive bay zone supports the following configurations:

  • 3.5-inch drive bays (all hot-swap)
    • No backplane and no drives (supports field upgrades)
    • 8x 3.5-inch SAS/SATA
    • 12x 3.5-inch SAS/SATA
    • 12x 3.5-inch AnyBay
  • 2.5-inch drive bays (all hot-swap)
    • No backplane and no drives (supports field upgrades)
    • 8x SAS/SATA
    • 16x SAS/SATA
    • 24x SAS/SATA
    • 8x NVMe
    • 16x NVMe
    • 24x NVMe
    • 8x SAS/SATA + 8x NVMe
    • 16x SAS/SATA + 8x NVMe
    • 8x SAS/SATA + 16x NVMe
    • 8x AnyBay
    • 8x AnyBay + 8x NVMe
    • 8x SAS/SATA + 8x AnyBay
    • 16x SAS/SATA + 8x AnyBay

These configurations are shown in the following figure. The feature codes listed are the backplane feature codes when ordering CTO and correspond to the feature codes listed in the table below the figure.

Tip: Configurations with 8x or 16x total drive bays can be configured with or without an Integrated Diagnostics Panel with pull-out LCD display. With the Integrated Diagnostics Display, 8-bay configurations can be upgrade to 16 bays, however 16-bay configurations cannot be upgrade to 24 bays. See the Local management section for details.

B8MS ThinkSystem 2U 16x2.5" Front Operator Panel 1

Common backplanes: Two of the 2.5-inch backplanes listed in the above table use the same physical circuit board. Feature codes BH8B and BH8D use a backplane with eight bays where each bay has both a SAS/SATA connection and an NVMe connection. The difference is which connectors on the backplane are cabled: NVMe and SAS/SATA or just NVMe. Both feature codes use backplane SBB7A29600.

The use of front drive bays has the following configuration rules:

  • If 3.5-inch front drive bays are used, an internal RAID adapter or HBA is not supported as the adapter and bays occupy the same physical space
  • Any 8x 2.5-inch and 16x 2.5-inch drive configuration (SAS/SATA, AnyBay, NVMe) can optionally be configured for use with the Integrated Diagnostics Panel. 3.5-inch drive configurations do not support the Integrated Diagnostics Panel.

Mid drive bays

The SR650 V2 supports hot-swap drives installed in the middle of the server chassis. The drive bays are accessible by removing the top lid of the server and levering the mid drive chassis up at the front.

The following configurations are supported:

  • 4x 3.5-inch hot-swap SAS/SATA drive bays
  • 8x 2.5-inch hot-swap SAS/SATA drive bays
  • 8x 2.5-inch hot-swap NVMe drive bays

The drive bays in the open position are shown in the following figure.

M.2 support: When mid drive bays are configured, the M.2 adapter is installed on the mid drive bay mechanical as shown in the images.

‡ 2.5-inch drive backplanes for the mid-chassis area must be installed in pairs. NVMe and SAS/SATA cannot be mixed.

Field upgrades: Backplanes are available as part numbers for field upgrades along with require cable option kits, as described in the Field upgrades section below.

The use of drive bays in the mid-chassis area has the following configuration rules:

  • All processors are supported. Higher TDP processors will require the performance heatsinks.
  • Full-length adapter cards are not supported
  • GPUs (including low profile GPUs such as the T4) are not supported
  • The use of mid drive bays requires both Riser 1 and Riser 2 be installed, since power for the mid bay backplanes comes from Riser 2 (and Riser 2 requires Riser 1 be configured)

Rear drive bays

The SR650 V2 supports hot-swap drives installed at the rear of the server chassis. Supported configurations are as follows:

  • 3.5-inch hot-swap drives
    • 2x SAS/SATA drive bays
    • 4x SAS/SATA drive bays
  • 2.5-inch hot-swap drives
    • 4x SAS/SATA drive bays
    • 8x SAS/SATA drive bays

The configurations are shown in the following figure.

Figure 8. Rear 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch drive bay configurations

In addition, the server supports two 7mm-thickness SSDs which are installed in place of either slot 3 or slot 6 (not both). Supported 7mm drive bays are:

  • 2x 7mm SAS/SATA hot-swap drive bays
  • 2x 7mm NVMe hot-swap drive bays

These drives are shown in the following figure. See the 7mm drives section for more information.

Tips: These 7mm drives can be used in conjunction with any rear drive 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch bay combination.

Field upgrades: Backplanes are available as part numbers for field upgrades along with require cable option kits, as described in the Field upgrades section below.

The use of rear drive bays has the following configuration rules:

  • The use of rear drive bays restricts the number of slots and the choice of risers that are supported. See the I/O expansion section for details.
  • The use of rear drive bays requires Riser 1 be installed, since power for the rear backplane comes from Riser 1
  • The 7mm rear drive kit is supported installed in either slot 3 or slot 6 but not both at the same time.
  • The 7mm drive enclosure is connected to an onboard port and cannot be connected to any installed RAID adapter or HBA.

Supported drive bay combinations

This section describes the various combinations of 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch drives that the server supports. The drive bay combinations are grouped based on the drive type at the front of the server, 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch.

3.5-inch drive bay chassis

The following table shows the supported combinations when the server is configured with a 3.5-inch chassis (where the front drive bays are 3.5-inch). The table lists the front, middle and rear backplanes required for each drive bay combination. The choice of storage controller for each configuration is listed in the Controller selections section.

M.2 and 7mm drive support: All 3.5-inch configurations listed in the table supported both M.2 and 7mm drives, however some specific adapter combinations restrict the use of M.2 or 7mm as listed in the Controller selections section.

Field upgrades

The SR650 V2 is orderable without drive bays, allowing you to add a backplane, cabling and controllers as field upgrades. The server also supports upgrading some configurations by adding additional front drive bays (for example, upgrading from 8 to 16x 2.5-inch drive bays).

Upgrade path: The key criteria for upgrade support is to ensure that the target configuration is one of the supported drive bay configurations as listed in the Supported drive bay combinations section.

For example, if you are upgrading a 2.5-inch drive configuration from Config A to Config B, you will need these additional options:

  • 4XH7A60930, ThinkSystem SR650 V2/SR665 8x2.5" SAS/SATA Backplane Option Kit
  • 4X97A59811, ThinkSystem SR650 V2 2.5" Chassis Front BP2 SAS/SATA Cable Kit

To add drive bays you will need to order both drive backplanes and cable kits. Backplane kits do not include cables.

When adding drive bays, you will also need to add the appropriate storage controller(s). Consult the tables in the Controller selections section to determine what controller sections are supported and what additional controllers you will need. Controllers are described in the Controllers for internal storage section.

RAID flash power module (supercap) support

If you plan to add one of the RAID adapters that includes a RAID flash power module (supercap) as a field upgrade, then you may also need to order a Supercap installation kit for the supercap, depending on the location where the supercap will be installed. For CTO orders, the components needed are automatically derived when you select the RAID adapter. The adapters that this applies to are as follows:

  • ThinkSystem RAID 930-8i 2GB Flash PCIe 12Gb Adapter
  • ThinkSystem RAID 930-16i 4GB Flash PCIe 12Gb Adapter
  • ThinkSystem RAID 940-8i 4GB Flash PCIe Gen4 12Gb Adapter
  • ThinkSystem RAID 940-8i 8GB Flash PCIe Gen4 12Gb Adapter
  • ThinkSystem RAID 940-16i 8GB Flash PCIe Gen4 12Gb Adapter
  • ThinkSystem RAID 940-16i 8GB Flash PCIe Gen4 12Gb Internal Adapter

The location of the supercaps depends on the mid-chassis drive cage used in the server, as shown in the following table.

Table 25. Supercap support
Mid drive cage Supercaps

4M17A61230 B8MQ ThinkSystem 2U Supercap Holder Kit 1 (holds 2 supercaps)

M.2 drives

The SR650 V2 supports one or two M.2 form-factor SATA or NVMe drives for use as an operating system boot solution or as additional storage.

The M.2 drives install into an M.2 module which is mounted horizontally in the server:

  • In servers without mid-chassis drives, the M.2 module is mounted on the air baffle
  • With a mid-chassis drive cage (2.5-inch or 3.5-inch), the M.2 module is mounted on the drive cage, as shown in the Mid drive bays section.

There are three different M.2 modules supported, as listed in the following table.

* Only supported with 2.5-inch front drive bays. Not supported in configurations with 3.5-inch front drive bays.
† Adapter also supports PCIe 4.0 x1 connectivity to NVMe drives (requires NVMe drives with U.3 interface)

Configuration notes:

  • Supercap support limits the number of RAID adapters installable: The table lists whether the adapter includes a power module (supercap) to power the flash memory. The server supports between 1 and 4 supercaps depending on the server configuration as described in the RAID flash power module (supercap) support section. The number of supercaps supported also determines the maximum number of RAID adapters with flash that can be installed in the server.
  • Field upgrades: If you are adding a RAID adapter with supercap to the server as a field upgrade, you may need a supercap holder as described in the RAID flash power module (supercap) support section.
  • 7mm drive support: The storage adapters listed in the table below do not provide connectivity to the 7mm drive bays that are optionally available at the rear of the server. The 7mm drives have their own independent RAID controller. See the 7mm drives section for details.

The RAID 940-8i and RAID 940-16i adapters also support NVMe through a feature named Tri-Mode support (or Trimode support). This feature enables the use of NVMe U.3 drives at the same time as SAS and SATA drives. Cabling of the controller to the backplanes is the same as with SAS/SATA drives, and the NVMe drives are connected via a PCIe x1 link to the controller. Such support provides greater flexibility and allows the use of the low-latency and high-IOPS benefits of NVMe drives connected to a standard RAID adapter. Tri-Mode is supported with U.3 NVMe drives in either 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch form factor.

Tri-Mode requires U.3 drives: Only NVMe drives with a U.3 interface are supported. U.2 drives are not supported. See the Internal drive options section for the U.3 drives supported by the server.

The onboard SATA controller has the following features:

  • Controller integrated into the Intel PCH
  • 6 Gbps SATA host interface
  • Supports up to 14 SATA drives
  • Supports RAID-0, 1, 5, 10 (Intel VROC SATA RAID, previously known as RSTe)
  • Supports JBOD
  • Supports HDDs and SSDs; can be mixed

The onboard NVMe support has the following features:

  • Controller integrated into the Intel processor
  • Supports up to 12 NVMe drives direct connected to onboard ports; additional drives through retimer/switch adapters
  • Each drive has PCIe 4.0 x4 host interface
  • Supports JBOD - Intel and non-Intel NVMe SSDs - no license required
  • Supports RAID-0, 1, 5, 10 (Intel VROC NVMe RAID) - Intel NVMe SSDs only unless VROC Premium license is installed
  • VROC Premium also extends to any drives connected via an NVMe Adapter (switch or retimer)

Intel VROC onboard SATA and NVMe RAID

Intel VROC (Virtual RAID on CPU) is a feature of the Intel processor that enables RAID support. There are two separate functions of VROC:

  • Intel VROC SATA RAID, formerly known as Intel RSTe
  • Intel VROC NVMe RAID

VROC SATA RAID (RSTe) is available and supported with all SATA drives, both SATA SSDs and SATA HDDs. If offers a 6 Gb/s connection to each drive and on the SR650 V2 implements RAID levels 0, 1, 5, and 10.

VROC NVMe RAID offers RAID support for any NVMe drives directly connected to the ports on the server's system board or via adapters such as NVMe retimers or NVMe switch adapters. On the SR650 V2, it implements RAID levels 0, 1, 5, and 10.

Performance tip: For best performance with VROC NVMe RAID, the drives in an array should all be connected to the same processor. Spanning processors is supported however performance will be unpredictable and should be evaluated based on your workload.

By default, VROC NVMe RAID support is limited to use with only Intel-branded NVMe drives (feature B9X7). If you wish to enable RAID support for non-Intel NVMe SSDs, select the VROC Premium license using the ordering information in the following table. VROC Premium is fulfilled as a Feature on Demand (FoD) license and is activated via the XCC management processor user interface.

Table 32. VROC upgrade
Part number Feature code Description
4L47A39164 B96G Intel VROC (VMD NVMe RAID) Premium

VROC Premium is only needed for non-Intel NVMe drives in a RAID configuration. You do not need the VROC Premium license upgrade under any of the following conditions:

  • If you have SATA drives connected to the onboard SATA ports, you do not need VROC Premium
  • If you have Intel NVMe drives connected to the onboard NVMe ports, you do not need VROC Premium
  • If you have non-Intel NVMe drives connected to the onboard NVMe ports, but you don’t want RAID support, you do not need VROC Premium

Virtualization support: When implementing VROC RAID (SATA or NVMe), the onboard SATA and NVMe ports do not support virtualization hypervisors such as VMware ESXi, Linux KVM, Xen, and Microsoft Hyper-V. Virtualization is supported on the SATA ports only in AHCI (non-RAID) mode.

For specifications about the RAID adapters and HBAs supported by the SR650 V2, see the ThinkSystem RAID Adapter and HBA Comparison, available from:

For details about these adapters, see the relevant product guide:

Internal drive options

The following tables list the hard disk drive and solid-state drive options for the internal disk storage of the server.

M.2 drive support: The use of M.2 drives requires an additional adapter as described in the M.2 drives subsection.

USB memory key

For general portable storage needs, the server also supports the USB memory key option that is listed in the following table.

Table 49. USB memory key
Part number Feature Description
4X77A08621 B8NV ThinkSystem 32GB USB Flash Drive

Internal backup units

The server does not supports any internal backup units, such as tape drives or RDX drives. External backup units are available as described in the External backup units section.

Optical drives

The server supports the external USB optical drive listed in the following table.

Table 50. External optical drive
Part number Feature code Description
7XA7A05926 AVV8 ThinkSystem External USB DVD RW Optical Disk Drive

The drive is based on the Lenovo Slim DVD Burner DB65 drive and supports the following formats: DVD-RAM, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD-ROM, CD-RW, CD-R, CD-ROM.

I/O expansion

The SR650 V2 supports a total of up to 8 PCIe 4.0 slots, all full-height and all with rear access, plus a dedicated OCP 3.0 SFF slot for networking. Slot availability is based on riser selection. The use of slots 4-8 requires that both processors be installed.

The slots are provided by riser cards:

  • Riser 1: Slots 1, 2 and 3 (CPU 1)
  • Riser 2: Slots 4, 5, and 6 (CPU 2)
  • Riser 3: Slot 7 (CPU 1), and Slot 8 (CPU 2)

NVMe support: The use of Riser 3 is mutually exclusive to onboard NVMe support as they use the same PCIe connectors. See the System architecture section.

The slots in each riser are either PCIe 4.0 x16 or PCIe 4.0 x8 depending on the riser card selected as listed in the table below. All x8 slots are physically x16 slots. Riser 1 and Riser 2 are also available with PCIe 3.0 adapter slots, using a lower-cost PCIe 3.0 riser, if desired.

As discussed in the Internal storage section, the server supports drive bays in the rear of the server. Depending on the drive bays selected, the number of slots available for adapters is reduced. The figure below shows the supported combinations of slots and drive bays.

Tip: For configurations with 2.5-inch front drive bays, an internal RAID adapter or HBA can be installed in a dedicated space and cabled to a PCIe 4.0 x8 connector, thereby freeing up a slot for other purposes.

The following figure shows the locations of the rear-accessible slots for each configuration selection. The OCP slot in located in the lower-left corner.

SR650 V2 slots
Figure 13. SR650 V2 slot configurations

The following table lists the riser slots available for CTO builds.

Tip: It is also possible to not have any slot selections, in which case slot fillers will be derived in the configurator. Slots can be added later as field upgrades using option part numbers as listed in the Field upgrades table.

Serial port

The SR650 V2 optionally supports a RS-232 serial port by adding a COM port bracket to either slot 3 or slot 6. Ordering information is shown in the following table.

Table 52. Serial port
Part number Feature code Description
7Z17A02577 AUSL ThinkSystem COM Port Upgrade Kit

The bracket is shown in the following figure.

ThinkSystem COM Port Upgrade Kit
Figure 14. ThinkSystem COM Port Upgrade Kit

Serial port configuration rules:

  • For server models with 8x PCIe slots or a 4x 2.5-inch rear drive cage:
    • If both riser 1 and riser 2 use the x16/x16/E riser card and a 7mm drive cage is installed on slot 3, then a serial port module can be installed on slot 6.
    • If only one of riser 1 and riser 2 (not both) uses the x16/x16/E riser card, a 7mm drive cage and a serial port module cannot be installed at the same time. If no 7mm drive cage is installed, then a serial port module can be installed on slot 3 or slot 6.
    • If neither of riser 1 and riser 2 use the x16/x16/E riser card, no serial port module is supported.
  • For server models with a 8 x 2.5-inch/2 x 3.5-inch rear drive cage:
    • If riser 1 uses the x16/x16/E riser card, a serial port module can be installed on slot 3 and a 7mm SSD cage can be installed on slot 6.
    • If riser 1 does not use the x16/x16/E riser card, a 7mm drive cage and a serial port module cannot be installed at the same time. If no 7mm drive cage is installed, then a serial port module can be installed on slot 6.
  • For server models with a 4 x 3.5-inch rear drive cage, a 7mm drive cage and a serial port module cannot be installed at the same time. If no 7mm drive cage is installed, then a serial port module can be installed on slot 3 or slot 6.

Field upgrades

Slot configurations can also be ordered as field upgrades using option part numbers, as listed in the following table.

Tip: If you want to add both a 7mm drive enclosure plus PCIe slots in slot 4 and 5, you will need to order the 7mm drive option (either 4XH7A61057 or 4XH7A61058) plus the x16/x16/E PCIe G4 Riser 1/2 Kit, 4XH7A61081. The latter part number provides the 2-slot riser card.
