Removing Motherboard


Recommended Posts

Hi All


Is there any good guides on how to remove the motherboard/tray, i have my new i3 Coming this week and planning on install it. along with a Noctua NH-L9I Low Profile CPU Cooler (maybe - Suggestions?)


on the weekend i installed my HP P410 with two 40MM fans to cool it, and i was looking at removing the tray but it seemed a bit awkward with flimsy connectors everywhere

The HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 Maintenance and Service Guide ("Service Manual") that GotNoTime provided a link to above is an excellent reference.


Another thing to look at (after you downloaded the "Service Manual" above) in the HP Customer Self Repair Services Media Library -- Media Selection Page at http://h20464.www2.hp.com/index.html?adid=10428184?jumpid=ba_r329_hhoaffiliate&aid=38293&pbid=TnL5HPStwNw&aoid=35252&siteid=TnL5HPStwNw-2AqdWY0BAnwWKcoFnRxYMA 


Under 1. Product Category SELECT Servers

Under 2. Product Family SELECT HP ProLiant MicroServer

Under 3. Product Series SELECT HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8




hit RETURN and you will go to the Remove/Replace Videos selection menu shown

What i3 is it, one that's known to work I presume?


He shouldn't need to change the heatsink as long as its a <35w CPU, saying that I ran a 45w E3-1260L and that was fine on the stock heatsink tbh
