Makes me kinda wonder about E3-1265L but I got the V2 so may not be an issue? I haven't installed it yet.  Waiting on parts.

 

The V2 appears to be far more compatible, and it's on the lists here, and also, in Intel ARK :)

 

I think I just got a DOA one, but I have ordered the 1260L, since the 1265L I found, are double the price. For my current needs, the 1260L will do :)

Interesting... When I bought my 1265L last year, the 1260L was both harder to find and more expensive, almost on par with the 1265L V2. Right now both of the SB models seem to be around the $100 mark on eBay, though.

Still waiting for the 1260L to arrive. I do hope this one is just "plug n play" :)

@napalmd

Mine appears to be inside EU, but not yet arrived.

With some luck, it will arrive this week :)

 

And like @Trig0r said.... Plug.. "sacrifice" old IT equipment to the gods, and hope the "new" one works :P

The E3-1260L arrived, after clearly, passing through a warzone... from the package appearance :P

 

But the extremely well inside packaging kept it safe!

 

And finally, in the first try, the E3-1260L is installed and working!

The machine only rebooted once after recognizing the CPU change, and then a clean boot to the OS.

Was left working all night, and I haven't tested anything yet.

 

But I am thankful this one was just plug n play :)

Now to see if I have time today for a few normal tests.

 

Ahhh, and now the post name is correct! hehe

Nobunaga, congratulations! And don`t forget to turn off Turbo Boost in BIOS to avoid of overheat the CPU if You use stock (35W) heatsink.

I'm not sure if it's on.

But I left it running prime95 with maximum CPU for about 1hour.

Temperatur reached 70ºc, and fan was up to 75-80%.

 

Think it won't overheat.

Will try 1 video encoding and see what happens :)

In my case fan speed is low (about 9%) and I`m glad). In major time server in idle or DLNA-active mode so no problems at all.

      Hi Guys,
       
      New member here, some great info on this forum so hopefully a few of you have experience with the Intel E3-1260L CPU running in a HP Microserver Gen8? 
       
      I know for sure it will work as I’ve seen some good threads on here but can anyone tell me if the upgrade made a noticeable difference in the fan speeds and noise?  
       
      Im looking at putting two Gen8’s in a living room in place of an old N54L so cautious of too much noise..
