  • Relative humidity: 5% to 100%
  • Maximum dew point: 29°C (84.2°F)
Server off:
  • Temperature: 5°C to 45°C (41°F to 113°F)
  • Relative humidity: 8% to 85%
  • Maximum dew point: 27°C (80.6°F)
Server on
  • Temperature: 5°C to 40°C (41°F to 104°F) up to 950 m
  • Humidity, non-condensing: -12°C dew point (10.4°F) and 8% to 85% relative humidity
  • Maximum dew point: 24°C (75°F)
  • Maximum altitude: 3,050 m (10,000 ft) & 5°C to 28°C (41°F to 82°F)
  • Maximum rate of temperature change: 20°C/hr (68°F/hr) for hard disk drives
Water requirement:
  • Minimum water flow rate: 6.0 liters per minute per chassis, assuming 1.0 lpm per compute tray with 6 trays per chassis (1 tray consists of 2 compute nodes)
  • Inlet Water Temperature: 18 °C to 45 °C (64°F to 113°F) for all processors up to and including 145 W TDP
  • Inlet Water Temperature: 18 °C to 35 °C (64°F to 95°F) for processors at 165 W TDP (E5-2698A v3)
  • Maximum pressure: 4.4 bars
Note: The water required to initially fill the system side cooling loop must be reasonably clean, bacteria-free water (<100 CFU/ml) such as de-mineralized water, reverse osmosis water, de-ionized water, or distilled water. The water must be filtered with an in-line 50 micron filter (approximately 288 mesh). The water must be treated with anti-biological and anti-corrosion measures. Refer to Water Treatment Specification (part number 00J0351).
Particulate contamination
  • Design to ASHRAE Class A3, temperature: 36°C to 40°C (96.8°F to 104°F), with relaxed support:
    • Support cloud such as workload with no performance degradation acceptable (turbo-off)
    • Under no circumstance, can any combination of the worst case workload and configuration result in system shutdown or design exposure at 40°C
    • The worst case workload (such as linpack and turbo-on) may have performance degradation
  • Airborne particulates and reactive gases acting alone or in combination with other environmental factors such as humidity or temperature might pose a risk to the water-cooled technology tray. For information about the limits for particulates and gases, see Particulate contamination.
