    HPE ML30 Replacement Cooler/Fan Issues

    Hi - not sure that this is entirely the right forum to place this question/request for help - but here goes. I bought an HPE ML30 Gen 10 [E-2224 16GB RAM, running WSE 2016] in May, earlier this year. The CPU fan was horribly noisy - so took the plunge and replaced it with a Noctua NH-U9S...

    Cooling VRM on Epyc server board in a consumer case

    I'm considering a 7302p on an Asrock rack ROMED8-2T or Asrock rack EPYCD8-2T motherboard for my new ATX tower workstation for simulation work. The workstation will regularly need to run experiments for 24-48 hours all-core. Both those boards have a tiny little heatsink on the VRM (see pic)...

    Do quiet high pressure fans for a home server exist?

    I've got a full-length 4U server case, so I've got plenty of room to macgyver it and get any size of fans to work somehow, but I need to both create decent suction to pull air over my hot-swap bays and cool what will probably be a big passive AMD EPYC cooler. I can't seem to find anything to...

    Gigabyte HPC Server cooling question?

    Gigabyte G482-Z50 Does anyone know, or could find out (as I think this server is pre-release), exactly how the following Gigabyte HPC server cools its CPUs? (excluding heat sinks) As you can see there are no front chassis fans, only fans behind the GPUs and at the back of the Chassis; hence my...

    Replacement Heatsink 9361-8i

    I've found a supplier that sells heat sinks which I think will be a better option for the 9361-8i, they are a 26 fin heat sink with a 10mm base and an overall height of 28mm, they are 80mm long and have a width of 31mm, an eyeball comparison shows them looking identical in size but longer than...

    NVMe heatsink / cooling

    Would like to hear your opinion and ideas for NVMe cooling solutions, most obvious is a heatsink I guess. First of all is it necessary? The reviews I've read of NVMe's with pre-installed heatsinks, e.g. WD Black SN750, the heatsink didn't seem to make that big a difference in performance (kind...

    Mellanox Connectx-2 temperature (and alternatives?)

    My 2-port Mellanox ConnectX-2 NIC is running at a scary 72C. I have got a Norco 4u case with 6 Noctua 80mm fans. They are running at adaptive speeds. Nothing blowing air over the PCI cards, so that won't help. I might build a bracket with magnets to hold some fans (maybe two 80mm) and one of...

    Create Custom Fan Speed Maps for SuperMicro X10 Servers via IPMI

    I got tired of the noise with my SuperMicro X10 Server (4027GR-TRT), but didn't want to get into involved hardware fan swaps which still may produce unsatisfactory results. For reference, the "Optimal" fan setting decided to run half of the fans at 8000RPM at idle, and the other half at 5000RPM...

    Long bolts for fitting Corsair H55

    Hello! I purchased some used Asetek 550LC (they are the OEM for Corsair H55) coolers from ebay and unfortunately they did not come with the long screw / bolts for fitting them to the case. I am looking for a specification for these so that I can pick equivalents from a hardware place or ebay. If...
