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..
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.
After reading a lot of stuff here and there I am planning some sort of investigation... I'd like to make a board adapter to make Microserver work with any 120mm fan (PWM or DC regulated) without problems and failures. I know some members got problems when installed a new fan and tried different connection schematics.
Here's what I'd like to do:
6pin HP connector <-----cable----> adapter board with MCU -----> 4-pin fan connector (+ 6-pin HP-compliant one for backward compatibility)
Desired functionality of MCU board:
1. Working rotation detect with any fan based on rpm counter.
2. MCU-based rotation speed regulation using both PWM and DC modes to allow support for any fan. DC controlled fan low-voltage cutoff detection should be included.
3. "First-run" mode to check to lowest voltage and detect PWM-DC fan control functionality.
I couldn't find some information:
1. What 6-pin connector type HP utilyses to allow the board connection to Microserver mobo as I wouldn't like to disassemble the original fan?
2. Have anyone tried the rotation detect imitation (having a 6-pin custom connector and a potentiometer would let me do that)?
3. Can you help me to collect some information regarding the issue in this topic to make things easier as I can say there's 5 or 6 topics only on Reset and I also find some info on HP and other related forums?
I made stupid mistake and bought gen10 microserver because it looked nice.
Hardware is like this:
Samsung 850 pro 256 for OS win10 pro
2x wd red 4tb in SW raid
1x wd green 3b
It is loud as hell when booting and very irritating after that.
There is just too much noise from fan for quiet home office.
Is there anything i can do about it?
Please help my ears bleed!
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,
