GPU Kit Options
The GPU R740 Rules:
  • Ensure that both the processors are installed.
  • The processor must use a GPU kit low-profile heat sink module
  • All GPUs must be of the same type and model.
  • You can install up to three double-wide or six single-wide GPUs.
  • The filler bracket on the GPU air shroud must be removed before installing the GPU.
  • Ensure that high-performance fans, and GPU air shroud are installed.
  • When using systems with GPU, ensure that you install PSUs with 1100 W or higher, and set the PSU configuration to non-redundant mode.
  • Generally, any GPU that is greater than 75 W requires a power cable. GPUs with 75 W or less does not require a power cable.
