Processor E3- Intel Xeon 1265Lv2 Info and experience.


Recommended Posts

Hi guys.


I recently posted that I payed around 370€ on a Processor E3- Intel Xeon 1265Lv2. Dunno if its too much (@sal user told me its quite more than usual price), but couldnt find it anywhere else:




The thing is that after yesterday night testing the processor I found out is a ES Processor (Engeeniering Sample) teste with CPU-Z, Sisandra Software and both reported the same Will upload results later. Right now Im arguing with the reseller to get an official Intel Processor or have my money back.


Some info about Engeeniering Samples:





But leaving that issue aside I would like to know if anybody having that same processor could upload an CPUZ Specs Stats to compare them with mine (I will upload mines also as I said before) so we can discuss about the processor itself.


I've done some research and people say its ilegal to sell them, besides that I want to know if they are better or not (some say they might be bug faulty since are Samples and others say they are better since the have the multiplier Unlocked and can perform from default 2,5ghz to 3,5Ghz with no turbo enabled).


Please correct me if Im wrong I just had little time and knowledge to back up this info.


Thanks guys again for your time and effort  ^_^  :rolleyes:

Thanks a lot my friend will compare this ASAP when I get home and upload mines for comparation :rolleyes: . This might be of great help for other users that want to know the real difference between a processor that is ES and production.


Actually is pretty funny I never heard of this ES processors problems till now.  :lol:

This might be of great help for other users that want to know the real difference between a processor that is ES and production.

There are many reasons to have engineering sample CPUs and not all of them will show a difference via info tools like CPU-Z. There may be fatal bugs in some particular set of instructions that a later revision corrected before release. Some sample CPUs are very broken and literally only to be used as a physical sample for hardware design such as CPU sockets.


Whether it is better or not than a regular retail CPU depends on what the CPU actually is. Overclockers used to prize fully working ES CPUs because the multipler may be unlocked but they're happy with pushing the limits and getting random unexplained problems or crashes. Whether this particular CPU is good or not depends on a lot of factors and whether you're willing to risk possible incorrect operation or crashes is the main one IMO.

You hit on the spot, Im no overclocker and I like my systems as stable as they can get. I like to be on the edge and latest updates but no for overclocking and breaking at HW lvl.


Here is my picture as promissed.


Looks exactly @Psykix but I can see that my Core Speed are higher and my Multipliers too.

That's just because my CPU was idling at the time I took the picture.


I'm running balanced power plan.

I'm running balanced power plan.

If you're talking about the Balanced Power Plan Windows has, mine is the same too, since it comes as default.


If its the one specified on the Bios, currently Im running the Optimized one which I think is also called balanced.


My machine was idle too just doing screenshots....

Yes, balanced power plan in Windows.


Sounds like your processor may not be dropping down then.


Mine even drops to 1596Mhz at times.


Doing anything taxing makes it jump up over 3.0Ghz

I guess that might be one of the disadvantages of the ES processor. Gonna check if it has a fix. Trying to figure out how to return this and get my money back and the Importation fees.....is a fucking headache.


Ty guys :) If anyone has knowledge of testing or benchmarking etc so that I can get some advices in start testing and see if it has and other comebacks It would be appreciated.


Running Windows 10 while doing CPUZ and benchmarking right now.. dunno if its the best OS to do it.

      Good afternoon folks!
      I have a question I was wondering if someone would know about. I have a Microserver Gen 8 with Vmware ESXI 7 currently installed on the MicroSD with AHCI enabled instead of RAID mode (dont find anything usefull in raid mode in my current setup other than booting from ODD, which I can just use as another Datastore instead).
      With that context being said, Im trying to enable the Agentless Management Service from the ILO with the drivers on the Vmware ESXI 7, but unfortunetly after installing and trying to start the service with:

      /etc/init.d/hp-ams.sh start  
      I get the following error:
      /opt/hpe/ams/amshelper: error while loading shared libraries: libnicmgmt.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory  
      Makes sense following the Vmware ESXI HPE support matrix, since its only supported until Vmware ESXI 6.5U2 Pre-gen. But I´ve been reading lots of people having working setups doing the following:
      Install Vmware ESXI HP Custom Image 6.5U2 -> Offline Update to Vmware ESXI 6.7.
      I was wondering if installing HP Custom Image 6.5U2 with the drivers Agentless Management Service working and doing a full upgrade to ESXI 7.0 would do the trick, since its an upgrade not a clean install...so libraries should stay supporting older drivers installed.
      Does this make any sense?? Has anyone gone trough this alredy?

      I have been running the WHS1 pack 3 for many years.  Unfortunately it is no longer working.  I got a Proliant microserver Gen10 hoping it will run it but was unable to install the software.  The software should run on most older PCs?

      Does anyone have the WHS1 running on the Gen10?  Also my WHS1 iso is Pack 1.  If I manage to install the Pack 1 can I find on the web the upgrade to pack 3?  Would I be forever stuck at Pack 1?  Any advice would be appreciated.

      All credit to schoondoggy for his original idea. A shame I am on the wrong side of the Atlantic to order an SDM kit as the import duties make it an expensive option, or would have if they were still available. I had to look around to see what alternatives I could find... and managed to find the bits needed on Amazon!
      I must admit I am rather pleased with the end result of this project and may repeat it on the other Gen8 MicroServer. The outcome is a server with a mirrored system drive on the internal B120i, and the main drive bays connected to an HP P222 card providing a RAID-10 data volume. This is pretty much my ideal setup for a stable resilient but small server.
      Sabrent 3.5" to x2 SSD Internal Mounting Kit (BK-HDCC)
      Amazon UK - https://amzn.to/32qEVou
      Amazon US - https://amzn.to/3h8Blom
      The kit comes with all the cabling you need and all the required screws to mount the drives and bracket.
      Two types of power splitter cables are included along with two SATA cables. The bracket holds two SSDs and provides a small gap between them.
      I mounted the bracket next to the PSU but leaving a 2-3mm gap to allow for some airflow past the SSDs in case they get warmed by the P222.
      Put some insulating tape along the underneath of the upper chassis rail next to the PSU and drilled three small holes.
      I used two strips on to stop the drill bit from walking across the metal. Drill with a 2mm first then a 2.5mm bit. This leaves enough metal for screws to thread in.
      Check and measure each hole against the bracket as you go so that they line up. Bracket is then fixed in place using the provided screws (see photo).
      The final part of the puzzle is another Mini-SAS to SATA cable the same as the one connected to the internal drive bays.
      This is an SFF-8087 Mini-SAS [male] connector to 4 SATA [female] header cables. The 50cm cable from Jyopto works great and not too much spare to lose within the system.
      Amazon UK - https://amzn.to/2CXAzgb
      I could not find it on Amazon US site but there was one from CableCreations that same length.
      Just need to add your choice of SSDs and cable up to B120i port.  I went with Samsung 860 Pro SSDs for the longer rated lifespan of write cycles.
      I decided to forget about an internal DVD/RW drive and opted for an external HP F2B56AA slimline drive that can be plugged into the USB of either system.
      Amazon UK - https://amzn.to/2EgSSxD
      Amazon US - https://amzn.to/326uFmL
      Sabrent also make a really good quality 2.5" to 3.5" bay converter adapter (BK-PCBS) that I have used in the EX490/X510 to convert from HDD to SSD system drives.

      Hopefully this information will prove useful to some looking to update their MicroServer.

      Hi! I am planning to buy a Microserver Gen10 Plus E-2224 for a small business, and want to add as much disk space as possible. I already have the older Gen10 with 4x4TB HDDs in RAID10 (effective capacity 8TB) and a 2TB SSD in the 5th slot (which is missing on the new G10 plus). The max stated capacity on the HPE site seems to be limited with their own enterprise HDDs, so I'd like to see if I can go for bigger disks. The server would be running a sort of an application which collects lots of data from devices, and the data tends to grow over time (1-2TB per year), and I'd prefer not to worry about the capacity for the next several years.
      My primary concern is the max capacity (max single drive capacity + max total RAID capacity with the Smart Array S100i) I can reliably install. If possible, some actual setup which has been shown to work with 32GB RAM and its limited 180W power supply? I was also planning on upgrading it to 32GB. If I am buying a 16GB RAM server, does this means it has both slots occupied with 8GB modules and I need a 2x32GB kit? For the os SSD, I won't have the PCIe slot available because we need to insert a certain GPS PCIe card that the server uses for time synchronization. So, if I want an SSD, this means I should use something like 1xSSD + 3xHDD in RAID5, instead of RAID10?  
      I've been planning to install 16TB Seagate Exos X16 drives, with rated max operating power at 10W (6.3W for random reads/writes). Does this seam feasible?
      Thanks a lot for your tips!
