Re: A6913A

Jon,

I've seen this once on the A6913A cell board. I have extra covers, since the cells come with both itanium and pa-risc covers, so I usually put one of the full size covers on there anyway. The cell I got this way was used, so I'm not sure if this is an older or newer design. However, I have gotten some new from HP fairly recently and they all seem to have the cover that I am used to (the full cover).

Re: A6913A

A decision was made to not require the full cover for those cpus that have a protected, or fully enclosed, fan. Think PA8800, Madison, Mad9M. The cpus without fully enclosed fans will continue to require the full cover.

The two new pieces are called baffles, and cover the VRMs. One of them also acts as the door opener for the air dam at the rear of the Cell board location.

Part numbers are AB388-00002 and AB388-00003.

Good Luck - Tim
