Motherboard Data

Intel S5520UR Motherboard


  • Motherboard form factor: SSI TEB 2.1 12" x 13" (305mm x 330mm)
  • CPU socket: 1366-pin
  • RAM:
    • Number of DIMM slots: 12
    • Memory type: 800/1066/1333 MHz, Registered or Unbuffered
    • Possible sizes of Memory Modules:
    • Maximum Memory Capacity: 192 GB
  • SATA chip: Intel ICH10R 3Gbps Controller.
    • 6x SATA Ports.
    • RAID 0,1,10, optional RAID 5.
    • These ports cannot be used in the SR1625 and SR2625 Server chassis of Thomas Krenn.
  • SAS chip: There is no SAS chip located on the motherboard itself. This chip (LSI SAS 1078) is located on an active midplane, that Thomas Krenn is using for the SR1625 and SR2625 servers:
    • Only available with active midplane (connected with the motherboard by a "Bridge Board Connector")
    • 8x SAS/SATA Ports.
    • Software-RAID: RAID 0, 1, 10
    • Hardware-RAID (optional): can be used when a "RAID Activation Key" and additional RAM-module for the RAID cache (512MB) is installed. The controller acts then as a LSI Hardware RAID controller and supports RAID 0, 1, 5, 10, 6, 50 and 60. The BIOS is the same as for a LSI RAID controller.
  • Remote Management: RMM3 (optional).
  • Expansion slots:
    • depends on riser card (1U or 2U)
  • Graphics chip:
  • IPMI chip: IPMI Chip onboard
