Chapter 3 Hardware Installation and
Maintenance
This chapter helps you assemble the chassis and install components.
Before You Begin
Before you work with the server, pay close attention to the “Important Safety Instructions”
at the beginning of this manual.
1. Make sure the server is powered off.
Power down the server if it is still running.
(1) Press the Power button to power off the server from full-power mode to off mode.
The Power LED at the front turns from solid green to blinking green.
(2) Disconnect the power cord first from the AC outlet and then from the server.
The power LED turns off.
The server is not completely powered down when you press the Power button on the front
panel. To remove all power from the system completely, be sure to disconnect the power
cord from the server.
2. Ensure you have a clean and stable working environment. Avoid dust and dirt because
contaminants may cause malfunctions.
3. Ground yourself properly before touching any system component. A discharge of static
electricity may damage components. Wear a grounded wrist strap if available.
1. Some components are already pre-installed. Simply properly connect the relavant cables before
or after installation. See the Quick Installation Guide for more details.
2. Refer to the user manual of the server board you use for instructions on how to install server
board components.

Two types of heatsink, Type (a) and Type (b), are provided with the system. Please refer to
the instructions and picture shown below for where to install them respectively.
• Type (a), the Aluminum Extruded Heat Sink, with larger gaps between fins, allows
more air flow to pass through. Please install the Type (a) heatsink to the CPU socket
near the system fans.
• Type (b), the Copper Skived Fin Heat Sink, with higher fin density, can dissipate more
heat in a limited area. Please install the Type (b) heatsink to the CPU socket near the
I/O shield.
