BL460C G6 Graphics Mezzanine

Hello,

 

Has anybody tried to use a Graphics Mezzanine card in a BL460C G6?

 

I don't find any information about in the documentation.

Maybe it is not supported, but possible.

The system would be used in a testlab-setup

 

A WS460C G6 reverts to a BL460C when the graphics mezzanine card is removed (same systemboard).

 

Thnx for any information

Theoretically it should work if the BIOS is new enough (after they merged the BL and WS BIOS) but I know some of the WS460s had special air baffles inside to help cool the GPUs.

 

Gen8 blades now have a DIP Switch to select between WS and BL

Thank you for the information.

 

I'm going to try it out.

How did you get on?

 

I have bl685c G5 blades and I would like to add nvidia mezzanine cards to them.  It would be very useful to hear of your experiences and tips.
