HP Z600 Workstation - Expansion card slot identification

This section identifies and describes workstation expansion card slots and presents card configuration information.
Expansion card slot description
The following figure identifies workstation expansion card slots.

  note:
The x1, x4, x8, and x16 designators describe the number of electrical PCIe lanes routed to an expansion slot. For example, x8(4) means that the expansion slot is mechanically a x8 length connector, with four PCIe lanes connected.
Slots one, two, and four are PCIe GEN2 slots.
Slots one, three, five, and six use open-ended PCIe connectors, so a PCIe x16 card can be inserted. This allows the workstation to support more PCIe x16 expansion cards. A x16 card typically trains and runs at the maximum lane width available by the expansion slot. The card runs at the reduced lane width, with a corresponding performance decrease.
A x16 graphics card runs at the bandwidth of the slot it is plugged into. The slot bandwidth can be x1, x4, x8, or x16. A PCIe card can be plugged into a slot with a lesser speed. It runs at that speed with a commensurate performance decrease. (Older graphics cards may not comply with this.)
Expansion card configuration restrictions for power supplies
  caution:
To prevent damage, the overall power consumption of the workstation (including I/O cards, CPU, and memory) must not exceed the maximum rating of the workstation power supply. For power supply information, see Power supply specifications.
The maximum graphics card configuration is:
Power supply
Graphics card maximum
650W
75W
One in slot #2
and
One in slot #4
150W
One in slot #2
or
One in slot #4
Graphics cards greater than 75 watts require the use of an auxiliary power cable adapter.
If a graphics card greater than 75 watts is used, HP recommends that you leave the adjacent slot empty, and follow any additional workstation configuration restrictions. You can also use a lower power or lower profile card between slots for optimum cooling.
See the Site preparation guide for the HP 600 Workstation at http://hp.com/support/workstation_manuals for further power consumption information.
