HP ProLiant ML10 v2 CPU upgrade

Recommended Posts

adih2001

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.

The HP ML10 v2 has a 1150 socket and a Ml310e g8 v2 heatsink which has support for (but not limited to) the E3 12xx v3 CPUs up to 80W.
The screw-pattern for the heatsink is proprietary,
so you're limited to what CPU is supported by bios and the ammount heat the cooler can dissipate.
  
As long as you keep the CPU under 80W tdp you don't have to change anything else.
maybe unnecessary to say but do make sure to use quality cooling paste.
I'd not limit to only the officially supported CPUs, but still try to find a chip that's listed (for example on these forums) to be working. ( i don't think my 1270 v3 is officially listed)
 
Choose the right CPU based on your budget and needs, and if you can get a chip with better base clock for 10$ more, do it... Better have and not need than to need and not have! 
It also boosts the resale value, for when/if you decide to sell.
Servers pretty much only care for base clock speed not so much max turbo.
(and there basically is no overclocking.)

EDIT: The E3 1220 v3 is on sale here for €203, and I bought a E3 1270 v3 for 200 at a server outlet. that's a free 400MHz on all cores baseclock, so searching for deals does pay off.

Hello,

 

I didn't want to start a new topic with the same title and I have a similar question. I want to replace my Pentium processor with a fast Xeon and I found  many offers on ebay. Between them, 1280 v3 at 82W, 1245 and 1246 v3 at 84W.

They will work in my ML10 v2 without issues or not? I know about the official 80W limit, but I remember someone here saying that he's got a 1280 v3 working. I need a second advice please.

Thank you.

Those CPU should work. The wattage rating is close. You may have to increase fan speed to keep it cool.

I'd installed an Intel Xeon® CPU E3-1265L v3 45W processor in mine and never had an issue.

Thank you very much, now I can choose one according to my budget. There are really a lot of offers on ebay.

I upgraded as well. I have current throttling when running i7-4790k on default, stock settings. Is there a way to know what the current limit is or adjust BIOS to avoid throttling, assuming it is safe? I'm using Intel Extreme Tuning Utility to monitor the CPU's condition.

      Hi Community,
       
      First, my specs (briefly):
      MicroServer Gen10
      AMD Opteron X3216
      Win Server 2016
      [...]
       
      Problem:
      The Taskmanager shows only 1 CPU-core instead of 2.
      (ref. image 1)
       
      Solutions tried:
      checked msconfig...no CPU-Limit set checked, whether other users see the same amount of CPU-cores in task-manager (ref. image-link (internal) 2)  
      Anyone out there with an idea to solve this?

      Hi there,
      I hope this topic fits here just right.
      So a few days ago, I moved my Microserver Gen8 to a friend's place and resetted it.
      When we set it up with new disks, the raid-creation in OpenMediaVault (Debian 9.6) failed.
      `smartctl` tests passed just fine though and vendor-tools also didn't report any drive errors.
      What happened?
      - I start the Raid creation via `mdadm` and after a while (random blocks and times), it fails and the second disk seems to fail (e.g. sda and sdb are creating a raid, then sdb gets "kicked out" and reread as e.g. sdd, sometimes even with only a few GB of space instead of 3TB).
      I tried attaching the second disk on ata2 and ata3, but it keeps failing. The one on ata1 works just fine though.
      I tried different disks and vendors, but get the same results.
      There are some errors in `dmesg`, but I don't know what they mean. I pasted them here: https://pastebin.com/raw/XASQJ6cy
      What I did here: I stopped the raid to re-create it, but then didn't do anything for a while and the error still came up.

      Can someone help me with this? (As a wild guess, I'd say that somethings wrong with the SATA connections at least on ata2 and ata3).

      Thanks in advance

      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..

      Wonder if anyone can point me in the right direction here. Have just replaced the CPU on my gen 8 microserver. Went according to the video above. Upon booting the server up, there is a clicking sound coming from the main board. Regular as clockwork, and the server isn't posting. Any ideas? I've swapped back to the G1610T CPU, but still the same issue. And just make it interesting, I don't have access to a monitor or keyboard.

      Dear HomeServerShow:
       
      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!
