Gen8 RAM Issues - HELP!

Recommended Posts

50pence

Apologies if posted before but a weird one I’m hoping someone can help me figure out (probably bought the wrong ram! 😒)

 

Stock Gen8 with Celeron G1610T CPU & 4GB RAM (

Upgraded to

e3-1256L v2 with 65w HP Heatsink

Offtek 16GB (2 x8GB) DDR3 1600MHz 2R x8 ECC 

 

Offtek ram was bought sometime ago and registered fine in bios with the celeron.

 

Since upgrade of cpu & heatsink - the RAM slot closest to heatsink just doesn’t want to work. Tried swapping ram modules around. Single slots used. The slot furthest away from heatsink seems to work fine with all ram modules.

 

See pictures of failures and ram used. 

 

The bios jut seems to loop around at 30% when Any ideas??DC9FD736-712D-43BD-A72B-8289EB02058E.jpgB6A3ED2D-E520-4648-B99E-946204E0C703.jpg

Have you tried the 4GB module in the first slot with the XEON?

Yep. No dice unfortunately.

Then I think you have a bad XEON or maybe contact issues with pins on the CPU.

Hi, I see you have a version of the old bios (J06-2014) that does not have Xeon support.
You have to reinstall the celeron CPU then update the system bios with the latest version, when you are finished trying to install the Xeon CPU.

I think ill have to swap out cpus again and try again today. Thank you all for now. Fingers crossed 🤞🏾

It is best practice to have the latest firmware/BIOS. You should be able to update BIOS from iLo: https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=mmr_kc-0114521

I think all BIOS versions supported XEON. The late BIOS updates added support for certain i3 CPU.

Hi, I have checked the revisions of the HP bios. Xeon support is 2015.11.02 (A) (24 Oct 2016) 

https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=MTX_b1cc2b22faee4fe1a379fe8679#tab2

 

I think updating the BIOS in any case is a good thing to circumscribe the problem...

Ok so success. I switched back to the celeron and all was working. Then tried to update the bios via intelligent provisioning. No dice. Reinserted the Xeon. Booted fine and recognised cpu and ram. I’ll try again updating the bios somehow tomorrow now.

 

Thanks guys. I appreciate you taking the time to help me out

      So I'm trying to replace my ageing HP Proliant Microserver N54L. It's used as a general dogs body server, running Blue Iris, Plex and as my NAS server.
      I'm on a pretty tight budget but the poor server is always at 90% + CPU because of the CCTV and I'm looking at adding a second camera soon.
      Is there such a thing as a reasonably priced ECC home server build?
      My MVP is 8GB ECC memory, with 4 threads on the CPU. 
      I'd prefer a small form factor but that's like gold dust unless you throw a lot of $$££€€ at it. I've got to get this past my partner you see 😅
      Any ideas? I'm not loyal to any particular brand, so long as it works.

      Hi everybody.
      I have a Gen8 G1610T since 2 years and I am very happy with it. I use it to only host my Plex Server with 3*2Tb drives.
      I bought for a cheap price (40€) a Xeon E3-1220v2 and I have question about it. I have read Elvisdk's topic about temperature with G1610T default heatsink on 1220v2 and I wonder if play (and transcode) 1080p movies with 4 cores enable will be ok or too hot ? Did I must enable only 2 cores to be safe ?
      I cannot compare Elvisdk's temperature with wPrime burnt with the temperatures generated by Plex because I don't know them with a E3-1220v2...
       
      Thanks for your feedback.

      Hi,
       
      I have upgraded from G1610T to E3-1265Lv2 with success but the memory speed which is still stuck at 1333MHz instead of 1600Mhz.
       
      I have 2 x 4GB DIMMs with one be the original HPE DIMM and the other a Crucial 4GB 240 Pin DDR3 1600 MTps PC3-12800 CL11 Unbuffered ECC UDIMM Memory Module )(https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00IW4M9PK/ref=pe_385721_37986871_TE_item)
       
      The iLO memory summary is always showing:

       
      and while I am on the latest firmware ....

       
      The BIOS options available are : 1066, 1333, Auto
      I have also tried the power setting to "max performance" but still the memory speed remains to 1333Mhz
       
      Any ideas on how to set the memory operating frequency to 1600Mhz ?

      HI, I have purchased a GEN 10 microserver (version CPU AMD Opteron X3216 / 1.6 GHz with 8 Gb RAM). 
       
      I have installed Server 2016 Standard (two hard disk: 2Tb and 4Tb RED) but I have a problem with memory.
       
      In windows server it says: 8 Gb RAM (6,96 GB available). 
       
      I have:
      install video driver from HP web page uninstall it and leave the basic default driver check all BIOS option to search for a option for the shared video card memory.  (I haven't found anything)  
      So no luck.
       
      Does any body knows how to increase the available RAM ?
       
      Regards,
