Need info concerning backplane (p/n 452341-001)

Just wanted to upgrade DL160 G5 server with 2 additional HDDs. But cannot find any information about what addition hardware parts do I have to buy.
Found that I need additional "backplane two bays for bays 3-4" (p/n 452341-001) Does it comes with SGPIO cord, that connects to primary backpanel (as I understood from "HP ProLiant DL160 Generation 5 Server Maintenance and Service Guide" (c01325420.pdf) page 53) I must connect both backplanes using "Header for backplane aligns to backplane inter-connection", port with pins numbered 1 on the picture)? If that cord is separate independent part, what's its p/n? And will be RAID functioning without that cord?

I can apply photo's, if needed.
Thanks beforehand.

Beware of the difference on spare parts an option parts.

An option part, is the part you will buy, when you want to add new/more options to the machine.
Options come with all parts needed. Ei if you buy a CPU it will come with heatzink.
And the backplane will come with all parts needed.

Spare parts, do not come with all parts!
452341-001 is a spare part no. so do not expect that all parts in the kit.

445985-B21 Hot Plug HDD Backplane 1U 2S Kit.
This might be the kit you are looking for.
But you better re-check.
I have no experience with this model.

Thanks for reply.
I'm aware of the difference between option pack and spare part.
Notified option pack (445985-B21) comes with "Hot-Plug power supply" and there's no any additional space to install it into the server. So I'm not sure that suits my request.
