That is surprising for me as well. I am running an E3-1241v3, 32GB RAM, a Quadro P620, and LSI 9211-8i.I see 80-90 watt power usage on the barebone system with OS. It is definitely high on the power usage, I was kind of surprised with it.
Was this the ebay vendor or TheServerStore? Who do you represent?The vendor bios isn't updated. All they did was take the password we gave them after they promised a credit of $100, (but backed out of), provide it to IBM, who gave them the bios without a password. Then flashed the password free bios to the servers , but raised the rate. Our bios is fully updated with latest micro code among other things.
Y'all are awesome people for doing this!It was a request of our employer, so we represent neither. We use these servers for untangle appliances, where i work, among other things, and being told told it wasn't possible annoys my boss a great deal. So we took it into our own hands to get the password, followed by an updated bios to share with everyone else regardless of cost.
Interesting. I have mine running at 80+w - fluctuates between 80 and 85 at idle with similar stats. I do have 4x2TB 7.2k drives, but that should be less than 20w at idle. Do you have any of the ethernet ports connected at that power draw? I do, but I'm only running one.The system running Ubuntu 18.0.4 idle at 48w.

I managed to do this on another Supermicro X10 but not this one - the BIOS modding tool didn't seem to like the v3.2 BIOS for me (not sure what I did wrong).Have included the modded 3.2 Bios from Bluefox. You will need to reset CMOS after install - did mine from a Rufus FreeDos USB.
Ubuntu using 1 gb network port , and 1 ipmi network port.Do you have any of the ethernet ports connected at that power draw?
What kind of glue did you use?Ubuntu using 1 gb network port , and 1 ipmi network port.
I still have a system in the 1u chassis, will test it out later and report back.
I am in process of moving the system board to istar 2u case, waiting on fans from Ebay.
Once I have build a proxmox cluster working, I'll have more concrete power number.
I glued a 80mm Artic fan on top of the 3 x 10gbe Ethernet chips, it added about 1-2w to the system.
