Potential CPU upgrade options for Microserver G8

Recommended Posts

Would also like to confirm that a Xeon E3-1270 v2 works successfully in the Gen 8 Microserver. Installed it and successfully booted up with no problems whatsoever. The cpu runs at 3.5Ghz and turbo boosts to 3.9Ghz.

Thanks for testing this setup, ordered a Gen8 and the E3-1265 v2  :) 

 

Question on the Graphics, is the Gen8 actually using the on-board graphics?

The Gen8 uses Matrox graphics that is built into the iLo chip. It does not use Intel graphics.

Any chance of using the Intel® HD Graphics 2500 in the E3-1265V2?

Has anyone successfully paired the E3-1265Lv2 (or any other E3-12xxL) processor with the P222 Controller Card.

During BIOS post, just after "Processor Intialization" completes, I get the Red Screen of Death (RSoD) with a NMI (non-maskable interrupt).

This is apparently an indication of a hardware issue.

I had this problem prior to OS install, when I was just booting into BIOS to look around.

Swap the G2020T processor back in and everything is once again well with the world.

 

Unit already had latest BIOS, as it was a Cyber-Monday purchase.

SPP updates ran from USB stick during boot with no problem.

Swap the E3 in and RSoD is back during post.

 

P222/512 FBWC is recognised during post (with G2020T) and RAID-5 is set up with (currently empty) 4x3TB WD30EFRX.

B120i has single SSD in RAID-0 off ODD port, tho I plan to pair with a 2nd SDD and move into RAID-1 off SFF-8087 port.

 

Used Provisioning to make sure all HP drivers pre-loaded during Win Server 2012 Essentials install.

Downloaded all Win updates, then re-ran SPP just in case.

Ran HP updates from inside Provisioning function.

After system was all updated and happy, I tried the E3 swap again.

Same RSoD during post.
