I thought I was going to expand my Lenovo x3650 M4 from 8 HDD bays up to 16 bays. With my new Power cable for just that. And I get really fare before I realise that I am missing a cable.
The cable I am missing is 46W8469 or 00D3049 - I2C cable or control cable.

For the white 14pin & the 16pin black connectors:

Even just 1$ a month, comes out to the same as Binge-watching all of my 500+ Videos every month.

My PlayHouse is a channel where i will show, what i am working on. I have this house, it is 168 Square Meters / 1808.3ft² and it is full, of half-finished projects.

I love working with heating, insulation, Servers, computers, Datacenter, green power, alternative energy, solar, wind and more. It all costs, but I'm trying to get the most out of my money, and my time.
