Hi.
We need to bring the server's TDP down a bit. If it was a gaming system I would've probably reduce Vcore a bit and configured cpu power limits PPL1/3.
However, this is server CPU, and I doubt it got any overclocking capabilities.
Do you think there's a way to down-clock the server with reasonable loss of performance?

SYS-1028R-WC1R (145w tdp)
2x E5-2687W v3 (160w tdp)

Disable turbo-boost in the bios?
Otherwise, your options depend on the operating system you are using.
