z820
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?

thanks....

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 slot..........no 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
