x3850 X5 difference of CPU board and System board?

2021-02-21, 11:28 AM

Hello Community!

 

In IMM of the x3850 X5 I can see partnumbers for a 'CPU Board' and a 'System Board'. What is the difference? Inside the server I only see two boards the board with the CPUs and the IO board. Is that the same thing? And if it is why does it have different part numbers then?

 

Best regards,

Hello!

 

I have now totally disassembled the machine to find out.

 

The CPU Board - is ofcause the motherboard with the CPU's and memory on.
The System Board - is the one with the PCIe connectors and network and all that.
