ThinkStation P330 SFF / Onboard M.2 slot

2018-10-27, 17:54 PM
 

I bought at Lenovo.es this week a ThinkStation P330 SFF.  Model: 30C7CTO1WW. Configuration:

 

Processor : Intel Core i7-8700 (12 MB de memoria caché, hasta 4,60 GHz) Operating System : Windows 10 Pro 64 Operating System Language : Windows 10 Pro 64 (español) Memory : Quantity 2 x DDR4 de 8 GB 2666 MHz UDIMM Memory Qty : null First Video Adapter : Tarjeta gráfica integrada. Power Supply : SFF con C246, 260 W 92 % Audio Adapter : Integrated Audio. First HDD Boot Drive : Yes. First Hard Drive Selection : SSD 512 GB, 2,5" , SATA3. First HDD Selection Qty : null .UltraSlim Optical Device : DVD Rambo slim 9,0 mm Windows 10 Memory Card Reader : Lector de tarjetas 7 en 1. Wifi Network Adapter : Intel inalámbrico-AC 9560 2x2 AC, Bluetooth versión 5.0 . Keyboard : Teclado USB tradicional negro: español. HDMI Port : Yes. Cable Lock : Factor de forma pequeño de candado de cable Power Cord : LineCord - Spain Language Pack : Publication - Spanish Warranty : 3 años de garantía in situ

 

In description Lenovo.es says: 

  • Up to 3x M.2 SSD with one dedicated onboard M.2 slot.

A single question: Has this ThinkStation P330 SFF model that spec? May I install a SSD M.2 inside motherboard?

 

P330 User Guide

 

ThinkStation P330 SFF

 

 

 

 

Thanks...

I'll have to double check this, but your P330 SFF should come with the bracket + heatsink required to support the single onboard M.2 NVMe drive.  The other 2 x M.2 NVMe drives listed as supported in the specs would come from using M.2 carrier cards that would install in the standard PCIe slot(s).

 

This info should be covered in the user guide, but I'll see if I can get some pics posted tomorrow.

I asked about this issue because when you try to configure the workstation there's no way to buy it with onboard M.2.

 

Really strange...

I'm not even seeing the online configurator for P330 SFF as being functional yet in the US.  Which site are you trying to use to configure the system?

 

It's possible that something else you're attempting to configure is conflicting with the ability to support onboard M.2 NVMe drives, but I'd need to know the full config you're trying to build to determine that (along with a functional online configurator).  There's also always the issue that the online configurator doesn't support every possible feature/function due to the complexity involved with doing that.  But a single M.2 NVMe drive is a popular configuration, so I'd hope that's not the issue here.

I bought the machine (and I configured it) here:

https://www.lenovo.com/es/es/workstations/p-series/ThinkStation-P330-SFF/p/30C7CTO1WWESES0/customize?

 

 

 

Configuration that I chose is in my firt post.

 

ThinkStation P330 SFF.  Model: 30C7CTO1WW. Configuration:

 

Processor : Intel Core i7-8700 (12 MB de memoria caché, hasta 4,60 GHz) Operating System : Windows 10 Pro 64 Operating System Language : Windows 10 Pro 64 (español) Memory : Quantity 2 x DDR4 de 8 GB 2666 MHz UDIMM. First Video Adapter : Integrated Graphic Card. Power Supply : SFF con C246, 260 W 92 % Audio Adapter : Integrated Audio. First HDD Boot Drive : Yes. First Hard Drive Selection : SSD 512 GB, 2,5" , SATA3. First HDD Selection Qty : null .UltraSlim Optical Device : DVD Rambo slim 9,0 mm Windows 10 Memory Card Reader : Lector de tarjetas 7 en 1.

As I said previously, when I configured the workstation there was no way to buy it with onboard M.2.

Have you tried building your configuration again using the online configurator?  I'm able to select both a 1TB M.2 NVMe drive and a 512GB 2.5" SATA SSD drive using the configurator link you provided.  Actually, though my Spanish is pretty poor/non-existant, the site seemed to allow me to build out the full config exactly as you had it (with the addition of the M.2 NVMe drive).

 

Perhaps there was something odd going on with the configurator at the time you tried to order?

 

At any rate, I don't know of any technical limitations that should block your config from being orderable.

Today, possibilities I see to configurate the workstation about HDD are:

 

-First M.2 SSD Raid Array

-First PCIe M.2 HDD Selection (PCIe)

-First HDD Boot Drive

-Primary Raid Array Configuration

-First Hard Drive Selection (SATA3)

 

I cannot see a 1TB M.2 NVMe drive there...

 

Maybe I am not doing things well...

 

Thanks again.

If I pull up the configurator link you posted, and simply go straight to the selection for "First PCIe M.2 HDD Selection" without changing anything else, I see the 1TB drive there:

Ok.

 

So, is it a PCIe M.2 HDD the onboard M.2 drive? I thought a "PCIe card" was not the same that "onboard". 

 

That is my doubt from the beginning... Look at point 10 and 13 at page 6. And 13, 21, 22 and 23 at page 7.

 

These pictures are extracted from ThinkStation P330 User Guide, Parts on the system board (link in another message above):

Correct.  P330 utilizes a single onboard M.2 NVMe slot which is a new design for the platform.

 

Other M.2 NVMe drives can  be added via traditional M.2 carrier cards which install in the normal PCIe slot(s), but the primary M.2 NVMe drive location will be the onboard slot in most cases.
