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.

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.
