Thanks. I want attach a 40mm fan to the SAS controller on a Supermicro X10SRH-CF. Can't see any way to do it other than glue.

Wonder if hot glue would work?

Cable Zip Ties to attach 40mm on top of the SAS heatsink
Using small zip ties, you can usually make a small loop around the arm that connects the heatsink to the spring loaded plastic pin that goes through the motherboard. Then, you can use that loop to connect to the fan with another zip tie that goes through the fan's screw holes and the loop. Takes a little fiddling on the smaller heatsinks and much more secure than glue IMHO. Just don't tighten the zip ties too much or you can damage the heatsink bond or motherboard.

Thanks for this.

They should be fine, I've never had one melt and the temperature ranges I've seen for some that have a rating have been in the greater than 85c range. I think you have more to worry about if those areas of the heatsink are 85c with a fan spinning!

Done deal. Just hope the zip ties can handle the heat.

I'd be interested to know how your temps are in use. You've got your fan set to pull air through the heatsink. The times I've put a fan on an HBA/RAID heatsink, I've had the fans push instead. Maybe I've been going about it the wrong way. :)

They were running 80c in my other system without a fan. This system will be fired up when the CPU cooler arrives later today.

Just added a fan to the other system and it brought the temp down to 42c. Big big improvement. IMHO, it needs a fan. Runs too hot without one.

What are you using to see the temperatures on the SAS3008 chip? I don't believe that shows up in IPMI on my board.

You can use fine pitch machine screws too. I put this on mine that I stole from another motherboard somewhere that I'm not using, that also used these screws.

I have an e3 1285l v4. After installation, the black screen cannot be turned on. Can anyone modify the bios again to support the v4 series of CPUs?

I just got this board and I cannot get proxmox to pass through iommu. Very frustrating. I have ssds plugged into my hba gonna try and take this and put on the motherboard sata and see if that helps. Don’t think it will.

I am using xeon e3-1265L with 32gb ram.

meant to have proxmox, pfSense and freenas on it. I have two lsi 2308’s in it mode with 12 8tb drives, 2x250gb ssds, 1x500gb ssd, and 3x1TB ssds.
still figuring out how I want my spinners, 3vdevs of4 rz1 or 4 vdevs of 3rz1 or all12 in a rz2. Then the ssds for booting vms etc

if you're bored would be curious to see temp difference between push or pull fan.

I have a old lsi 9260 card, it gets hot but doesn't report temp, so I don't know HOW hot...

Got my replacement from TheServerStore yesterday. Power consumption is hovering around the 80 watt range.
It is a little louder than the non-10g version I got with the x10slm+-ln4f and us using around 30 watts more power.

BIOS was unlocked with no password.
