I've searched around, but I'm not having a huge amount of success with answering some of these questions.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

NOTE:  All questions pertain to Version 2 Blades/Backplane.

  • 1)  Can any PSU that uses the same Proliant ML350 ML370 and DL380 G5 Server connections be used with a backplane?

  • 2)  What's the draw per blade?  I've read as little as 60w and as high as 90w from various sources.  Conventional wisdom says 32x2.5w=80w, but that doesn't leave headroom for the other hardware on the board.

  • 3)  I've read that using an ATX power supply is compatible, but I haven't seen exactly how to connect one.  Will I be able to make my own molex to feed the backplane?

  • 4)  Are there any molex or other ports on the backplane that allow for the connection of fans?

  • 5)  What does the bottom of the backplane look like?  Are there solder points/connection exposed?  Does this need to sit on a non-conductive surface?

  • 6)  Q:  Do I need to run ethernet to each blade? or just one to the backplane?
         A:  Each blade needs it's own ethernet cable ran to it.


Thanks for your time and information!

Found a picture of a 10 Blade setup on a backplane, seems like each blade requires it's own ethernet cable to be run to it.

Answer added to OP, incase anyone else has similar questions.
