Solved!

Can I use the additional CPU board from a v1 z620 in a v2?

Hi...

 

I have a couple of z620 workstations, a single-cpu v2 and a dual-cpu v1.  I'm planning on upgrading the CPUs and was wondering if the extra CPU board from the v1 machine is compatible with the v2? i.e. can I use the board from the v1 machine to make the v2 machine into a dual-processor box?

 

Thanks!

 

Joe

Hi Joe,

 

The simple answer is yes. There is only 1 variant of the optional Z620 CPU riser board so it will work with both the v1 and v2 motherboards.

 

The v1 motherboard has a 2011 boot block date, the v2 motherboard has a 2013 boot block date. You will find the boot block date in the BIOS, or you can simply run HP Performance Advisor in Windows where you can find it under BIOS Settings > File > System Information.

HP Z620 - Liquid Cooled E5-1680v2 @4.7GHz / 64GB Hynix PC3-14900R 1866MHz / GTX1080Ti FE 11GB / Quadro P2000 5GB / Samsung 256GB PCIe M.2 256GB AHCI / Passmark 9.0 Rating = 7147 / CPU 17461 / 2D 1019 / 3D 14464 / Mem 3153 / Disk 15451 / Single Threaded 2551

Hi Brian - thanks for replying so quickly! 

That's what I was hoping to hear, as I could only find one part number for the riser board... thanks for the confirmation.

 

Cheers -

 

Joe
