    Tyan S7012 BMC/IPMI stops. AST2050 area overheating.

    Hi Nizmo. Thanks for the guidance you have provided. I tend to agree that the management controller failure I'm seeing is not normal. The controller should be able to function while the motherboard is shutdown but powered without the need for active cooling. It could be time to go shopping for a...

    Tyan S7012 BMC/IPMI stops. AST2050 area overheating.

I see quite a few whitebox builds on the internet that use ex-server motherboards such as the S7012. I have not seen mention...

To keep the AST2050 area cool I have a Noctua nf-b9 mounted directly over the AST2050 chip. I would say there is pretty good airflow through the case...

    Tyan S7012 BMC/IPMI stops. AST2050 area overheating.
