FortiGate-5000 chassis compatability

The following table lists the currently available FortiGate-5000 series chassis and the FortiGate and FortiController boards that are compatible with each. A FortiGate or FortiController board is supported in a chassis if the chassis can supply enough power and cooling for the board. Also taken into account is the fabric backplane speed of the chassis.
