Dell R510 Perc SAS B Cable

Jump to solution
Hi all, I am hoping I can get some clarity on this, I have a 8 bay R510 configuration (Black plane part number is X836M) and somewhere along the line the SAS B cable is faulty (Original part P744P) which I cannot seem to find except on eBay or Amazon, which is fine, but I was wondering if any one knows of a compatible part number for this? It is for a Dell Perc H700 SAS Controller, I have put in a SAS cable from a T series server which is working with the exception of not being able to close the cover as this cable is to short to run the way the SAS B cable runs.

AndrewDowns,

The only other compatible cable I see for the P744P cable would be part # Y673P. The only cables cross compatible would be those from the R515, but they are the same cables listed above.

Also, I wouldn't recommend running the server with the cover off, as that negatively impacts its ability to cool the server. 

Hope this helps.

Hi Chris, Thank you. I’m not keen on running with the cover off or removing a fan just to run a cable. Thanks for the input. That was my fear as well. I can source the cable, but it carries a premium. Was just wondering if all sas cables were equal as it were. Smiley Happy. Regards
