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

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?
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

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.

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.


Firmware Revision : 03.72​
Firmware Build Time : 05/10/2018​
BIOS Version: 3.2
BIOS Build Time: 05/14/2018
Redfish Version : 1.0.1

So weird thing, with this board I cannot get into the bios of my lsi2308 card, and the bios clock keeps automatically resetting. I set it for my time then it automatically adjusts ahead 4 hours.... going to try and replace the cmos battery and clear it obviously. as part of the problem I am also having is with proxmox. I cannot pass the lsi2308 to freenas or anything for that matter as proxmox reports no iommu. I have researched and tried everything i could find. I think part of my problem is firmware for my lsi2308 is 16 not 20 and possibly the clock issue.

If I should have posted this elsewhere I am sorry and feel free to move it.

I can confirm that I, too, am having problems with my HBA card. My LSI 9207-8i just wouldn't show up at all.

>>>>>> ON TOPIC?????? Doesn't seem like there are many thread Nazi's around here. I have been Eyeing these boards about a year as a have a couple of 1265Lv3 Should make for beefy low power Switch/Router maybe get some practice setting up site to site VPN from pm parents house to My house.

Those of you that bought them Would you do it again?

If you want low power, this isn't it as the 10GbE NICs make it anything but.

35W on the Processor Vs 65W adds up in California. There is no Such thing as Low Power 10GbE. Still cost for a board/rack its a good price point because many of us still have older Haswell Based CPU/DRR3 memory that can be used to create a better 10GbE home back bone.

@ Marsh your going to build all of them out the same HW wise and rerun those tests that you did on the Virtual router.

That's the plan.
I just finished putting all the hardware piece together tonight.
Next step is install Proxmox and build the VM.

I have boards with E3-1240v3 , and E3-1226v3.
It will be interesting to see how much difference between the two CPU.

That's a common misconception. At idle, both CPUs will wind up using the same amount. The TDP is just the cap on the maximum power usage. If you don't need a bunch of 10GbE (which it doesn't seem like), there are far cheaper 1150 motherboards available that will draw considerably less power. For example: *TESTED* Supermicro X10SLM-F LGA 1150 DDR3 Motherboard w/I/O Shield & 1u Sink | eBay

10GbE can be low power, it just has to have SFP+ instead of copper.

@BlueFox

NOT 10GbE
SuperMicro X10SLM-F

Most H3 socket motherboards don't have 10GbE built in. I would say native boards that have 10GbE or Fiber on an H3 socket are less than my fingers on one hand in a semi common form factor.

A home router at my house is not idle in the slightest, Mother-In-Law streams TV just to have background noise I swear... and she's constantly downloading something that she shouldn't. She thinks she needs a VPN to play her games on her iPhone so that she won't get a virus but gets scammed into buying the apps. So power is based off of a processor with load even if its not all the time. Plus Copper is easier to mate to existing networking even though I have a TurboIron 24x switch the fiber patch or copper converter is still 30-40 bucks. 6 copper 10GbE is just right for future proofing and if I buy 4 copper Converters for the 10GbE its about paid for itself to buy the Server board in this thread..

Buying a second one to play with to have one at my parents would just be for learning and setting up Site to Site.

Pitting 4c4t against 4c8T both are close in watts so maybe not a power difference. Both have 8mb L3 which I find interesting wouldn't think a 4c4t would have that cache size. But maybe the 8mb Is standard on most E3 v3's.

Would I gain anything by putting a 10g adapter in my PfSense box?

These systems boards are purely for my LAB experiment purpose. Not for real life usage.
With 6 x 10gbe network onboard, I won't use any pice slot and still keep the system board size small.

I brought 5 systems, planning to experiment with various OS cluster setup.
