SAS cable for ThinkStation D10, D20, and C20x using on-board SAS controller


What cable do I need to use SAS drives in my ThinkStation D10, D20, or C20x?


If you have a ThinkStation D10, D20, or C20x with an on-board LSI (D10) or Marvell (D20 and C20x) SAS controller, you will need cable FRU 41R5513 to correctly connect your SAS drives to the sockets on the system planar (aka "motherboard").


FRU 41R5513 (45cm / 18" long)



The planar socket end is a typical SATA connector with locking tab.  The drive end is a SAS 29 connector (pictured below).



The SAS 29 connector end is compatible with both SAS and SATA hard disk drives.
