P920 processor upgrade heatsink question

2020-06-24, 15:21 PM

I have currently installed in my P920 two Intel Xeon Silver 4114 CPUs.

I am considering replacing them to Xeon Gold 6146 or 6246.

According to Intel the Xeon Silver 4114 CPU has a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 85W and the Gold CPUs have 165W.

I don't know what version of the heatsink is currently installed with the Silver 4114 CPUs.

 

According to Lenovo Options Compatibility Matrix there are two versions of heatsinks:

 

ThinkStation Px20 150W Heat Sink  4XG0Q17167

ThinkStation Px20 205W Heat Sink  4XG0Q17168

 

Which one do I have? How do I find out?

 

I believe when I have the heatsink for 205W I can reuse the existing heatsinks from both Silver 4114 CPUs for the Gold CPUs?

Or do I need to purchase new heatsinks?

Solved! See the solution

Short answer is NO.  You shouldn't need to purchase new heatsinks for your P920 workstation.  We only offer one version heatsink (205W) for the P920.  The 150W heatsink is exclusive to the P720 workstation. 

 

If you want to upgrade from Skylake to Cascade Lake, you'll want to make sure you are up to the latest BIOS version before making the swap.
