R/D = Redundant
H/S = Hot Swap Redundant

(3) Thermal Test Level:

Intel performs system level thermal testing of a given Intel Server Board in all listed 3rd party reference chassis. The server board is configured to use a generic fan control scheme that operates all attached system fans at 100% pulse width modulation (PWM). The generic fan control scheme is set by selecting the OTHER CHASSIS option using the FRUSDR Configuration Utility.

Intel cannot guarantee that specific system configurations will remain within maximum thermal limits if you choose to modify and reduce the fan control PWM rate from the tested configuration. If you choose to modify the fan control PWM rate, you are wholly responsible for all required thermal validation to ensure their system configurations stay within specified maximum thermal limits.

Refers to the highest level of testing that successfully completed Intel's thermal testing. The chassis configuration summary is provided below:
