The Teardown

With the side panel removed we can see how Lenovo has made the ThinkStation modular. Each of those red strips is where you pull to unlock and pull out the different components. It's super easy to switch out the PSU, install drive, add PCI-E devices, and swap out fans. Inside the side panel, we can see a diagram of the motherboard along with the mechanism of the lock.

A really interesting shroud (called an airflow baffle) directs independent air streams to each CPU cooler and directs airflow to the exhaust fan. It's a patent-pending technology and allows for both CPUs to co-exist in peace, where one doesn't suffer from the heat of the other. The fans are quite big and use Lenovo's proprietary connector to attach to the motherboard.

There are four HDD/SSD cages, and each one fits two drives. Inside the drive bays, we find two sets of logic boards that support both SATA and SAS drives. So you can plug in multiple Intel 750s as well as normal SATA based storage devices.

The PSU is also modular and has no cables attached to it. It's rated for 1300W with 92% efficiency.

A PCI-E Flex Connector slides into a PCI-E 3.0 x4 slot. The card offers two M.2 slots and houses a single M.2 drive (SM961). A heat sink will cool down the M.2 drives.

The $5000 NVIDIA Quadro is supported by a metal bracket that doesn't let it droop, so it's protected during transit. You can add in PCI-E cards at the top and bottom of the PC, and tool-less locks secure the PCI-E cards in place. The entire PC, except for the CPU coolers, is designed to be tool-less.
