    Supermicro X11SCH* Bios 1.0b - Thumbs Up!

    I finally got around to updating the bios on my Supermicro X11SCH-LN4F motherboards today. And so far I'll say it's been a huge success. A couple things to note fixed in this release: 1. CPU consumption due to Interrupts: Before the update Core 0 on my E-2176G CPU would run at constant 80%...

    Please help me understand the fan controls of Supermicro MB's

    Hi there, I just bought a Supermicro X11SDV-4C-TP8F, and I really like it. The active cooler I bought from Supermicro is extremely noisy, though, and I wanted to have it a bit quieter. I read lots of blog posts about setting up the upper and lower threshold of the fan speed via impitools, as...

    Replacing PWS-721-R1 Power Supply Fan with a Silent One?

    Hi, Don't know if anyone would know, but is it possible to replace the PWS-721-R1 PSU (in a supermicro case & mobo) with a quieter one? I've attempted shoring pin 17 and it does not seem to be working, so looking to get a quieter fan... but I am not sure if the power supply will allow that - or...

    SYS-E200-8D hot powered off

    I have a Supermicro SYS-E200-8D; when it is powered off, it is quite hot in the rear. I’m wondering if this is normal or if there is any BIOS setting that can prevent this. I’m thinking that it is possible that some components (beside the IPMI) is still powered even when the system is powered...

    Hi, First time posting a FS listing. I pulled this motherboard from a Supermicro CSE-745. The board looks good. Attached is the Sensor screen from the IPMI UI, unfortunately I don't have any Opteron CPUs to run it with. It looks good, no bent pins in the sockets that I see. Because of...
