Potential CPU upgrade options for Microserver G8


Recommended Posts

  • 6 months later...

I have a E3-1240 V2 @ 3.40GHz  with the current stock cooler running unraid with plex and some other dockers. Idle it runs about 42C but trancoding and running the kids minecraft server it can quickly jump to about 70-90's I would like to upgrade/modify the cooler thinking about a Akasa K25 or maybe some kind of push/pull fan's setup added to the stock cooler.


Could anyone provide guidance on the best method

I saw a few other users in this thread that get NMI (non-maskable interrupt) errors with a Xeon and PCI card.  I had a similar issue on shutdown but found a work around.  Server runs Fedora linux.  I put a Nvidia 710GT in with the Celeron G1610T and it works fine.  Put in a Xeon E3-1260L, without the video card it works perfect.  With the video card, I get an NMI error and red light of death on shutdown.  It starts up fine and runs fine, just crashes on every shutdown.  I found that blacklisting hpwdt and hpilo fixes the problem and I can use the Xeon and video card together.
