Before you begin
To view QuickSpecs and determine the compatibility of this product with your HP workstation, see
Only workstations having non-factory-integrated, high power PCI cards require the additional
cooling provided by the optional front chassis fan included in this kit. The optional front chassis fan is
not recommended for use on workstations that have hard drives mounted in the optical bays because
this might reduce long term reliability of these hard drives. HP recommends that your environmental
temperature not exceed 27°C (80°F) if this fan is installed in your workstation and you have hard drives
installed in the optical bay area.
