The Revision K version chassis models are also compatible with previous generation Supermicro Intel and AMD motherboards and form a robust superset that will fulfill any customer need for server/workstation chassis.
Some important features and benefits of the Revision K version chassis are:
- Diverse Mounting Hole Options
Revision K version chassis have additional mounting holes to flexibly accommodate all generations of motherboards.
- Power Distribution Expandability
Revision K version chassis are designed with two 8-pin power connectors to accommodate all motherboard generations and allow for future expansion.
- Air Shroud Flexibility
The Revision K version chassis air shrouds are designed to accommodate any generation of Intel or AMD motherboard to match your customer's requirements.
Some new generation Intel® Xeon® based motherboards are also compatible with previous generation Supermicro chassis for optimum system density and maximum value.
