N40L with Ultrium 920 and SC44ge - maybe?


Recommended Posts

Well I thought I would share my latest non-success and hopefully gain some insights on what I can do next....


I took apart my N40L last night as I had a cunning plan of putting an HP Ultrium 920 SAS LTO3 drive in the top and connecting it via an HP SC44ge SAS card I just happened to have loitering in a drawer with its cable.  Yes a strong case for too much tech!


All went well and card seemed correct height until after removing the mobo I realised that the mounting bracket was too high to fit the chassis backplane.  Drat and double drat!


I was wondering if the rear mounting panel could be removed as won't need the external SAS port (or will I) but before I headed to find a different bracket or took a hacksaw to the current one I returned it all back together and put the kettle on! :P


Any suggestions?

Check to see how far apart the screw holes in the board are,,, hopefully 54mm:



Drill a pilot hole and nibble out the rest of the hole with one of these:
