Z440 Thunderbolt Card F3F43AA GPIO Cable 751366-001

HP Recommended
Z440
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hello,

can anybody provide me the pinout for the internal GPIO cable 751366-001 for the 1 port Thunderbold card F3F43AA that connect the GPIO connector (5pin) with the mainboard connector (2x4 = 8pin)?

I would make it by the cables 751363-001 or 751364-001 I found in the box of the card.

For that I need the pinout

 

This cable is missing in my box and I get an error message each time the workstation is powered up.

 

Thank you all very much

the HP cable is unique in that unlike dell/Lenovo/Asus who also use the exact same alpine ridge card HP for some reasion instead of just using 5 wires going to one header on the motherboard HP uses  two headers and a cable that uses seven connections

 

all of the above OEM's use the exact same connections on the TBolt card header, they differ at the motherboard side.

 

i can give you the information taken from my system, (ASUS x99) which will document the card header connections

 

if you google around you may be able to match the HP MB connections to my info

 

the Asus part number for the cable is 14003-00380000

Thank you for your reply.

 

The pinout of the TB card I had also found on the web:

1. Gnd (Black)

2. Platform Sequence Control (Brown)

3. Platform Sequence Control (Red)

4. Plug_Event (Orange)

5. Power (yellow)

 

But I´m looking for the pinout of the Z440 mainboard, because there is no documentation that I can find around the web.

There are  4pins in 2 rows and one of the pins is missing that you can insert a connector only in one way.

 

On your ASUS MB it looks like 5pins in 2 rows with one missing, so it would be diffent to the connector of Z440.

 

Has anybody a Z440 with Thunderbold and a chance to messure the cable with a multimeter?

Or probably another boxed F3F43AA Thunderbold card with an cable for measurement the connections?

 

Thank you all for your help

the HP z820/840 TBolt connections on the motherboard are actually working USB 2.0 headers which you give up when the TBolt cable is connected. I suspect the z440 works the same way

 

check the z440 "service manual" i suspect it also has 2 internal USB ports that the TBolt card uses when it's installed

Sorry, but in Z440 there is a dedicated TB connector on the Mainboard.

If you don´t know it for sure please don´t speculate, because the topic will only have many replys that do not help.

 

I searched everthing in the web and there are no informations about the pinout ot the Thunderbolt GPIO connector of the mainboard.

That is the reason why I asked somebody who owns the cable 751366-001 to measure it and post the result.

 

Thank you all

you know, in my post on the TBolt motherboard header(s) i was carefull to state that i was not sure if the z440 header was the same as the z820, and yet you still  had to basicallytell me to kiss off  in replying to my post trying to help you

 

i do own the HP TBolt card, and i also asked some "IT" friends if they had z440's with the card could they take a picture of the cable and give me a pinout, but i'll be dammed if i will post it based on your reply to me.

you will need to locate it from some other source.

Hi DGoves,

 

you are one of the reason why foroms are full of crab.

I asked for the connection from an HP Thunderbolt card to the Z440 mainboard and you write something from your ASUS mainboard. That is complete the wrong answer.

You have 9 pin connector on your ASUS, I wrote that Z440 mainboard has 2x4=8pin (minus one missing)

 

You only have the same HP TB card, nothing more or less common to my entry question.

 

Before stating that Z440 is connected the same way like Z820/420 read the Service & Mainenance Manual of Z440, there are the facts.

 

I did it before I write here nonsens and only ask specific questions.

 

have a good day

CGN_Andre,

 

This US firm is offering : "HP Z TURBO DRIVE SIGNAL CABLE FOR HP Z840 / ZX40 WORKSTATION 751366-001"

 

https://www.itcreations.com/view_product.asp?product_id=72698

 

The listing refers to a Z Turbo Drive connection, however the HP part number matches and this cable is described as: "HP Z TURBO DRIVE SIGNAL CABLE FOR HP Z840 / ZX40 WORKSTATION - 15 INCH 5 PIN TO 7 PIN", and the "5 PIN TO 7 PIN" description suggests it may be correct.  The actual  Z Turbo Drive lead (=drive activity LED connector) has 4-pins.

 

The photos are detailed enough to see the cable configuration- there is an 8-pin connector with one pin blanked off to the other termination of a  5-pin.

 

After six HP workstations, I've never found finding parts for HP workstations to be straightforward.  I wish HP Support provided exploded  assembly diagrams with each part labelled with a  link to ordering it. Click on the part number and it starts a cart / invoice. Perhaps I'm missing something, but all the parts lists I've seen are only numbers. If one doesn't have the part already, how is the part number determined unless one has the exact description used in the parts list?

Ok, probably should start a new thread, but wondering what cable (part number) is needed to connect the TB2 card to the Z820 board, or does it even need one to work? Will the 751366-001 cable plug into the 2 usb 2.0 motherboard header as stated earlier on this thread? Thinking of getting one of these TB2 cards, but confused as to what cable comes with it to hook to a Z820. Thanks in advance for reply’s, promise to not get nasty for any information given.
