Microserver Gen8 E3-1260L Temp & Fans

Recommended Posts

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..

I have installed 1265L which is the same to 1260L.

The fan is quite.

I didn't notice any fan speed or noise change after the upgrade.

See below for my screnshots.

FYI, the 1260L only lets the memory work in 1333Mhz versus the 1265L works in 1600Mhz

MIne was fine with the 1260 in it, I did end up swapping out the stock heatsink for the later heatpipe version though.

Where did you get the heatpipe version, and what did you pay for it? 

I have only found a few (really hard to come by) and for like 140+ euro. Bit to much i think. I have added 2 40mm fans to my stock heatsinks.

      Hey guys,
       
      Has anyone around here been successful in setting up Proxmox on a Gen8 using a HBA for storage?

      Hey guys,
       
      As of June 2020, what are the latest versions of firmware for HP Microserver Gen8 to be installed on the system itself? Also do any other components have updatable firmware/os-independent software?
       
      So far my list is as follows:
      BIOS - J06 (04/04/2019) iLO 4 - v2.73 (11/02/2020) Intelligent Provisioning - v1.71 (20/02/2019)  
      and I guess the following could also be added (although both out of date):
      Smart Update Manager (HP SUM) - v8.1.0 (21/12/2017) Service Pack for ProLiant (06/11/2017)  
      Date formated as DD/MM/YYYY.
       
      I believe all the B120i Smart Storage stuff is part of Intelligent Provisioning.

      Hey guys, 
       
      Bit of a random question here, and I know it depends on many factors such as what they are doing etc, but how many VMs have you guys comfortably ran on Gen8 with an E3-1265v2 and 16GB RAM? When did you start to see a performance hit compared to what the Gen8 is generally capable of?
