Intel SSD P3520 1.2TB

Hi,

Would an Intel SSD P3520 1.2TB drive - PCi-e 3.0 (4x) fit a 2U case and is it compatible with an intel 2600CW2S motherboard? I see the motherboard only has PCIe Gen III x8, and PCIe Gen III x16 slots.

In other words are PCIe Gen III x8 and PCIe Gen III x16 compatible (both technically and physically) with the lower speed PCIe Gen III x4 drive?

Also do I understand correctly that the form factor of the hard drive (HHHL (CEM2.0)) means it would be able to fit a 2U server?

Thanks in advance.

Regards

Hello Some-User,

 

 

According to the ark.intel.com repository the Intel SSD P3520 series hdds are fully compatible with the S2600CW2S board, no matter whether installed on a 8x or 16x slot. You can confirm this on the following URL: http://ark.intel.com/products/88732/Intel-SSD-DC-P3520-Series-1_2TB-2_5in-PCIe-3_0-x4-3D1-MLC http://ark.intel.com/products/88732/Intel-SSD-DC-P3520-Series-1_2TB-2_5in-PCIe-3_0-x4-3D1-MLC under Compatible Products.

 

 

About the form factor most likely you will need to install the SSD using one of the PCI riser cards that come on the chassis. If you want to get more info about this go to https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/server-products/server-boards/Intel_Server... https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/server-products/server-boards/Intel_Server... . In section 10 it details the PCI riser cards. Also take into consideration that depending on the amount of processors you have installed some features or PCI slots might not be available. For mor info check https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/server-products/server-boards/Intel_R_Serv... https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/server-products/server-boards/Intel_R_Serv... section 2.2.

 

 

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Thank you, I have purchased and installed the device. It is working without any issues. I only had to change the BIOS to UEFI mode to allow booting from the device.

Thank you.
