    HP Proliant ML350p G8 Watercooling!

    Ryan, Thank you for that! What I currently have completed is stripping the two ground and the one PWM wire (from a 4 pin sata power cable with the same color layout that plugs snugly into the female socket ignoring the blue frequency wire. Didn't want to cut any wires on the fan chassis just in case it didn't work) and put a twist on wire connector on the ends with shrink tube holding all 3 wires together. Did this to the first fan in the assembly and tested it with FAN1 removed and everything is working as expected! One thing I do not understand is how the PWM signal is being spoofed with no hardware/software manipulation and checking the speed of FAN1 via SpeedFan, the RPM of FAN1 is the same as all the other fans (just curious). 😐 Never the less I will be working on this further over the weekend, installing four new 2500 RPM fans at 31 dB (Scythe DFS922512M-PWM) and creating a custom fan shroud in order to have the two fans in the middle push air directly through the CPU's for better temps. A type of wind tunnel effect. I have heavy heat temp graded thin plastic that should work perfectly for the design. Hopefully that will keep things cool. Will do a couple monitored stress tests in order to make sure that the fans can handle the workload. Will keep you posted with photos. Thank you!

    HP Proliant ML350p G8 Watercooling!

    Hi Denis, You are indeed right the ML will not post with anything other than the stock delta fans as I tried to swap them first with no success as it would shut down instantly with fan errors. The ML delta fans are actually 5 pin using a dual ground for fan detection. I'm using a Corsair Commander Pro fan controller which uses sata power and USB for PWM control via the Corsair LINK drivers. To make the ML work with no fans you have to fool it into thinking it has original fans I did this by spending a few days testing how the system detects fan speed. The ML has 4 fan bays and for each of these bays you need to cut both black ground wires on the back of the plug and connect them together and then also cut the yellow signal wire and simply connect it to any piece of bare chassis, I used the small metal prongs holding down the wires in the fan cage. You can then use the Corsair or any fan controller to power your new fans. If you have any questions or if I didn't explain it well enough please shout Ryan.

    HP Proliant ML350p G8 Watercooling!

    Hey Ryan, Very nice setup! Looks efficient in regards to CPU cooling. I'm working on a ML350P G8 as well and just ordered myself 4 2,500 RPM that will replace the loud deltas in the fan housing (same size with 4 pin, PWM support). Question. How did you wire the Noctua NH-U9DX i4 fans in order to work with the mobo properly without getting any post fan faults? I'm under the impression during boot/post the fans ramp up to 50% (5,500 rpm and slow down after OS boot) and with most fans that run slower that 5,000 RPM the mobo will spit out errors and will go into thermal shutdown thinking the fans are faulty. Please correct me if this is not the case. Much appreciated. Thank you. -Denis K-

    E3-1260L upgrade

    Hello @stone, I have the KTH-PL316E/8G, and despite being 1600MHz, it is operating at near 1000MHz. I have the E3-1260L operating in the Gen 8 for over 1 year now. Haven't seen any problems with the hardware. So for my build, the memory is working just fine

    HP Proliant ML350p G8 Watercooling!

    Hi all, We decided to go a different route with the ML350 and picked up a set of Noctua NH-U9DX i4 coolers which come with the correct mounting hardware for 2011 Narrow ILM. These have proven to be even better than water-cooling in this chassis as they create airflow and direct all the warm air out the back of the chassis. We are planning on adding a few 92mm noctua fans in the existing fan cage to help cool the ram and graphics but as it stands it works perfectly.

    BIOS Update Question

    I have three Proliant DL306e servers we are bringing back online running Windows Server 2016. The servers have been mothballed for a few years. The ROM date on each is 2-10-14. I downloaded and ran SPP 8.1 successfully on the first server, but it only update the System ROM date to 8-14-14. Ran it a second time - no change. Here's my question: What's the best way for me to make sure that the BIOS and drivers are all current? I found a BIOS update for Gen8 dated 5-24-19. Are HPE BIOS updates cumulative? Thanks bam
