Fan speed is 24% and I left the B120i alone as factory default, so it should be in RAID.  It's running my OS drive.

The more I read about these fan issues, the more I think HP should have included a manual override option, perhaps with a warning light and/or an automatic shutdown it the mobo temp gets too hot.

From my findings, so long as you use a drive on the B120i in RAID mode it seems to keep the fan below the 38% level. Just using the B120i for all 5 drives (one SSD) it stays around 7% which is perfect (but no RAID5). I'm not using the P222/512 card again until I need to by which time the fan/iLO4 issues may have been fixed (still OK for storage space with RAID10 at the moment).

Sounds like a reasonable interim plan...

My Xeon E3-1265LV2 45W arrived today and as others have reported works perfectly. When idling fan still stays at 6% and only pulling same 45w with RAID10 on the B120i. Fan went to 10% when transcoding even though CPU temp still not moving from 40C in iLO. 

Massive improvement and easily noticeable when Plex transcoding as CPU is still hardly doing anything.

 

Will look at re-fitting the P222/512 RAID card when the fan issues have been resolved by HP.

Just done a 2hr Prime 64 run with the Xeon E3-1265LV2 45W and fan holding at 26% at 20C ambient as reported by iLO4 with CPU holding at 56C. Amazing little chip for such power considering only a 35W rated passive cooler in the G8 Microserver. 

 

Total power draw at socket with CPU flat out 97w. PSU showing highest temp at 66C (88C Caution level).

Nice work psikey, and very reasonable temps considering the load.

And that's with it located in my fish tank cabinet :)

I can't seem to find many places that stock the E3-1265Lv2 here in the UK. And the one or two I have found seem to cost abit more compared to the E3-1230v2. I guess the the problem with the latter though is higher temps.

      Hi 
      My HP Proliant Microserver Gen 8 won't install HP Tools when I have running HP Smart Update Manager. 
      even when I have trying to install via Intelligent Provising, Windows Server 2019.
       
      Se image below 🙂 That's I missing.. ;-(

      Hi everyone.
       
      New to this forum.
      I have a gen8 microserver running at home, where I have installed an SSD in the ODD sata slot. On the SSD I have installed Ubuntu Server 18.04.
      I have then created a logical volume witht the raid controller and can then boot to the SSD. So far so good.
      My problem emerges when I reboot the system. The logical volume disapears and it gives the error: "boot logical drive is configured but is missing or offline".
      I then have to go into the utility and reconfigure the logical volume. Kind of annoying, when trying to run a headless setup.
