Thunderbolt 3 upgrade for P330

2020-03-31, 5:14 AM

Has anyone been able to add Thunderbolt 3 to a Thinkstation P330 tower?  I am having trouble finding a card for it but it looks like the P330 Tower motherboard is set up for one.

Both the front and rear thunderbolt should be supported in the P330....it's really just a preference on whether you want the thunderbolt port in the front or rear of the system.

Have you already tried to find the parts listed in this thread?

It is for the Small Form Factor, but the systems use the same parts.

We offer both a rear thunderbolt and a front thunderbolt solution in the P330 Tower.  

 

For the rear thunderbolt kit, the FRU part number is: 5C50W00869.

 

For the front thunderbolt kit, the FRU part number is: 01YW019.

 

For reference on how to set up Thunderbolt, feel free to reference the whitepaper:

Just checking to see if anyone was able to get the thunderbolt installed and working and which option you went with, front kit or rear kit?

Hi,

I'm sorry but I haven't ordered the thunderbolt card yet (I just got the p330 last week).  When I do, I'm going with the back port, it is a lot easier to install.
