identify mainboard and psu

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I have a z820 workstation from 2014 with -

Product #: LJ452AV
Serial #: [Personal Information Removed]

Baseboard version 158B

Boot block date 3/6/2013

How can I tell whether the mainboard is v1 or v2? (with regard to compatibility with future CPU upgrades)

How can I identify which PSU is fitted (other than by dismantling the unit to read the PSU label?

your question has been asked so many time on this forum. use the search box to view the numerous previous posts/replies or use google search keyword: "HP z820 bootblock date" either of the two will provide a answer (hint you have good news 2013 is what you want to see)


there is no dismantling required to read the power supply label, you simply remove the side cover (with power supply cord removed) and pull on the power supply handle ro remove unit, then read label which shows wattage, then slide supply back into tools needed


or you can count the number of 6 pin GPU power cables the stock 850 supply has two the 1150 watt supply has 3
