1. Ideally yes since both are SSI-EEB compliant
2. I don't think so due to different power/thermal specification
The documentation for the S5520SC says that it is a dual-processor motherboard.
Suppose that I use the board with only 1 low-power processor. I never use the 2nd CPU slot
and permanently leave it empty.
I have 2 questions.
1. The motherboard has 4 principal connectors for connecting to the power
supply. The documentation identifies the following 4 connectors.
J1K3 for main power (24 pins)
J9A1 for CPU 1 power (8 pin)
J9K1 for CPU 2 power (8 pin)
J9K2 for P/S aux/IPMB (5 pin)
Can I leave J9K1 without any connection to the power supply?
2. Can I leave J9K2 without any connection to the power supply?
In other words, can the motherboard still be correctly functional
if I leave J9K2 without any connection to the power supply?
