    Probably the server board has few PCI-E lines divorced from processors, because according to the documentation it is designed to connect the2 x GPU, 5.6 GB network controller, RAID controller and network card in the mezzanine slot, and the C602 chipset itself also requires the PCI-E line. Of all these devices, only two of the GPU are PCI-E 16x, the rest use 8 or less lines. Therefore, it is true that 3 GPUs requiring 16x + 16x + 16x may simply not be enough PCI-E lines laid on the board.

    I brought the first board into working view - I installed the radiators of the chipsets that I had previously removed to install on the second server and coolers, so I’m sitting here thinking what to do with it now. In the commentaries announced the vote on its future fate. You can suggest options for future use, friends.

    [QUOTE =“crypton __,post:160676,member:14221”]你好,朋友们,
    我已将我的GTX 1060 6GB显卡插入PCI插槽#1,它可以工作!
    我的主板型号是DCS7200S,带有BIOS 2.7.1

    它仅适用于以下BIOS设置:

    嵌入式视频控制器<已启用>

    视频枚举<onboard>

    没有OPROM和PCIe ASPM设置也没关系。

    这是一些图像

    I've just been reading through this long forum thread and am now very interested in doing this project.

    I first found this due to i found on eBay a m620 for a cheap cost. Then realised that it would be very hard to make that work out of the sled as theres no plugs on the end of it.

    Then i found the c6220/c8220 and ended up finding this thread!

    I jut had a few questions regarding this project getting this motherboard to boot.
    Correct me if im wrong

    1. Purchase C6220/C8220 with 18 pin plug (onboard sata ports) LINK HERE
    2. Purchase 24 ATX + 8 pin to 18 pin mini dell LINK HERE
    3. Plug in 18 pin mini to motherboard
    4. Plug in 24 pin atx psu to 18 pin
    5. plug in sata ssd with boot os?

    From my understanding that is all to get it to boot correct?

    _1. Purchase C6220/C8220 with 18 pin plug (onboard sata ports) LINK HERE
    Yes
    _2. Purchase 24 ATX + 8 pin to 18 pin mini dell LINK HERE
    Yes.
    _3. Plug in 18 pin mini to motherboard
    Yes
    _4. Plug in 24 pin atx psu to 18 pin
    Yes
    _5. plug in sata ssd with boot os?
    Yes

    Step 6
    You also need to close 2 pins in the PDB control connector - a small one with a gannum of 2 mm contacts - in order for the board to turn on.
    See here for a diagram https://i.imgur.com/iFB5Dd3.jpg
    The jumper between the two contacts is required, the rest is not.
    Then you need to connect the VGA monitor and USB keyboard and mouse through the hub, then turn on the power on the block with the button and the message should appear - the "memory configuration - done", you have to wait a long time, then the Dell logo will appear, enter the BIOS and adjust the disks.
    If the board is turned on - the power button on the board edge is green - there is no image with an inscription - you need to either connect an external video card (if an external video card is installed - there are no messages about memory settings and the screen is millet black for a long time, then only the Dell logo) or reset bios taking out the battery and setting the jumper, it is written about it in the subject earlier. If after that there is no image anywhere, then the board is most likely broken.

    The W6W6G board has a problem with shutting down, I am shutting down, but it does not shut down and everything disappears, waited five minutes and turned off forcibly, then turned it on, but when I booted, Windows issued that the computer was turned off incorrectly

    there is still a problem with the video card, the "Asus RX460 2Gb" does not display an image until the drivers are loaded, if you disable the integrated video card, the windows are not loaded

    Hi there!

    Can anyone say DELL C6220 motherboard weight (only motherboard, without memory, CPUs, GPUs, heatsinks and etc)?

    Thanks!
