Hello! Recently I've been thinking to upgrade the CPU in my HP ProLiant ML10 v2. It currently has a Intel® Pentium® G3240 (I got the model of this server that comes with the Intel® Pentium® G3240) and according to the manual I should be able to upgrade the CPU to a Intel® Xeon® E3-1220v3. Is this true? Do I need to change / get anything else? Thanks.
I just upgraded my CPU from a 1610T to a 1220L. All is going well, but I noticed fan speed has increase from like 10-14% to 14%-18%. I am wondering if someone else who upgraded is seeing the same just to rule out that I applied thermal paste wrong, screwed up heatsink install or something like that. I was expecting more or less (or even lower) fan speed as this CPU has a TDP of 20W, and the 1610T had 35W.
Thanks a lot!
I bought a HP microserver Gen8 to learn ESX and to host some VM.
This is my initial configuration :
CPU G1610T Celeron 12Go RAM 1 microSD (ESX) 4 HDD (data) 1 SSD (vm)
Really great hardware but I wanted to upgrade it to have more core/thread (and more VM).
After read many and many post like this :
(and many many other )
I bought a E3-1265L (v1 > the strange and cheaper version ^^) with a TDP at 45W and frequency lower than the v2 (processor base frequency = 2,40GHz instead of 2,50GHz) and my understanding was the difference between the original CPU (TDP = 35W) and the E3-1265L is enough small to avoid thermal problems.
BUT... (do you expect that ? )
After many test, I know I have a new heating system in my house...
Let me explain.
I made some test with mprime and I found these (relevant) results :
ORIGINAL CPU : CELERON G1610T
power consumption : arround 52 W
cooler : CPU fanless and optimal thermal setting in bios
Zone | T0 | T+30' | T+1H | T+2H | T+4H | =================================================================== CPU | 40°C | 40°C | 40°C | 40°C | 40°C | RAM | 35°C | 44°C | 44°C | 43°C | 42°C | VR P1 Zone | 46°C | 52°C | 52°C | 52°C | 52°C | ===================================================================
NEW CPU : E3-1265L (v1)
power consumption : arround 93 W
cooler : CPU fan (2 NF-4x10 Noctua added on the cpu heatsink) and maximum thermal setting in bios
Zone | T0 | T+30' | T+1H | T+2H | T+4H | =================================================================== CPU | 40°C | 53°C | 54°C | 55°C | 54°C | RAM | 35°C | 47°C | 49°C | 55°C | 52°C | VR P1 Zone | 46°C | 58°C | 62°C | 62°C | 61°C | =================================================================== note 1 : with the E3-1265L, all test without cpu fan are aborded after some minute because the cpu was overheated (manually stop over 65°c)
note 2 : with the E3-1265L and "cpu cooled by Noctua", the microserver is less reactive (ie : iLo need more time to give web gui)
I have some questions :
1) Do you think my results are good ?
I received the CPU in a very bad package and without anti-static bag. Maybe it doesn't work fine ?
2) Do you know a test to confirm the good preformance of my CPU ?
I don't know how to benchmark my CPU with similar other configuration
3) Only 10W TDP between Celeron and E3-1265L and too large increase of temperature ? Have-you the same result ?
4) Have you some warning point to share with me ?
5) Today, should we continue to use the B120I instead of AHCI for SATA performance ?
Thank's by advance,
Hi, I'm thinking of getting a surface 2 for a familiy of 6. Two parents and 4 young children.
The children will need to access school websites that undoubtebly use flash and require a complex username, teacher's email, passcode / pin.
What should I expect performance wise of a surface 2 with 6 people signed into it?
Should I get the larger disk version of the surface because the whole family plans to use it?
Is there an RT version of Last pass or a RT last pass like solution to remember all the passwords for the school sites?
I have been having lots of issues with my Surface 2, 90% of the time I reboot or boot my surface it requests my bitlocker key. Is anyone else having this issue? Did anyone manage to fix it?
