For the Intel® Server Chassis SC5600BASE, SC5600BRP, SC5600LX, SC5650DP, SC5650BRP, and SC5650WS, see the configuration guide to help select the correct Intel® Thermal Solution and Intel® Xeon® Processor with the correct wattage TDP3.

 
Note
  1. ONLY supported on Intel® Workstation Board S5520SC and Intel® Workstation System SC5650SCWS.

  2. Supported on Intel® Server Board S5520HC/S5500HCV/S5520HCT, Intel® Workstation Board S5520SC, Intel® Server System SC5650HCBRP, Intel® Workstation System SC5650SCWS, and Intel® Server Board S5520UR Family.

  3. Supported under the Intel® Server Board S5520UR and associated SKUs (SR1600UR, SR1625UR, SR2600UR, and SR2625UR). When using this processor with a 1U system (SR16xxUR), use only Single or Dual Rank DIMMs due to thermal limitation.

  4. Thermal Design Power (also called Thermal Guideline): The maximum amount of heat a thermal solution must dissipate from the processor so the processor can run under normal conditions.

  5. See the technical white paper on Intel® Turbo Boost Technology with the low-power Intel® Xeon® Processors.

  6. Support for these processors requires BIOS revision R0054 or later.

  7. The Intel® Server System SR2612UR only supports processors with a TDP of less than or equal to 95W.
