Undocumented Slot on Intel S3210SHLC

Hello,

i have an Intel S3210SHLC - Rev. C

on the product image from the intel website:

you can see above the PCIe x16 Slot, next to the Bios Battery and CPU-Fan header a small Slot, which is not documented in the Mainboard Diagram, also not in the Technical Product Specification. This space is also empty on my Rev. C Mainboard.

Could someone clarify me about this device? I´m wondering if it´s just shown on the product image or actually exists on production boards.

thank you in advance

Re: Undocumented Slot on Intel S3210SHLC

Hello,

It is documented in the TPS.

This board exists in different versions.

LX board SKU supports the following I/O slots:

 

− One PCI Express* x16 connector to be used as a x16 link from chipset (if a VGA

 

adapter is inserted into this slot, the VGA card will only work at PCI Express* x1

 

speed; this is a chipset limitation)

 

− One PCI Express* x8 connector to be used as a PCI Express* x8 link from the

 

chipset

 

− Two PCI-X 133 MHz, 64-bit connectors

 

− One PCI 5 V, 32-bit, 33 MHz connector

LC board SKU supports following I/O slots:

 

− One PCI Express* x16 connector to be used as a x16 link from chipset (if a VGA

 

adapter is inserted into this slot, the VGA card only works at PCI Express* x1

 

speed; this is a chipset limitation)

 

− One PCI Express* x8 connector to be used as a PCI Express* x8 link from

 

chipset

 

− One PCI Express* x8 connector routed to PCI Express* x4 bus from the ICH9R

 

− Two PCI 5 V, 32-bit, 33 MHz connectors

L and V board SKUs support the following I/O slots:

 

− One PCI Express* x16 connector to be used as a x8 link from chipset (if a VGA

 

adapter is inserted into this slot, the VGA card only works at PCI Express* x1

 

speed; this is a chipset limitation)

 

− One PCI Express* x8 connector routed to the PCI Express* x4 bus from the

 

ICH9R

 

− Two PCI 5 V, 32-bit, 33 MHz connectors

On the board LC, if you are referring to the PCI Express* x8 connector routed to PCI Express* x4 bus from the ICH9R

Here are the information:

PCI Express* x4 Sub-system

 

The Intel® ICH9R supports one PCI Express* x4-lane interface that can also be configured as a single x1 or x4-lane port. The PCI Express* interface allows direct connection with the PXH-V or dedicated PCI Express* devices. (Fully compliant with the PCI Express* Base Specification, Rev 1.0a).

Re: Undocumented Slot on Intel S3210SHLC

thanks for your reply.

i marked the slot which i´m talking about in the following picture:

i am not talking about any PCI Express Slot.

the red branded device is not listed in the TPS neither displayed in the "Server Board Mechanical Drawings"

thank you for your help

edit: i´m assuming that the branded port only exists on OEM-Boards/Systems? i´m a bit unsure what purpose would serve this port there?

Hi there,

I guess that you are right. It may be only on OEM board.
