use HWinfo(sonsors) to display temperatures.I have E5-2683 V3 (QEY7) on idle average 60C with ETS-T40-TB air cooler it is normal?
so I'm not lucky with ES, on idleuse HWinfo(sonsors) to display temperatures.
if there is 60 degree C its to much, should be <60C under load.
that are core temps, not case temp.
if your temp is such high the termal conductive material between the DIE and IHS is bad.
Try reseating the cooler, it is very rare that the solder between the die and IHS has gave away (especially in 2 years time). I am pretty sure 2011 Xeons are soldered as a opposed to thermal paste. Clean old paste with alcohol, re apply new thermal paste, and reseat the cooler.Thank you very much for your help

NO. You don't want to try taking the IHS (TOP) off the CPU. You WILL likely damage/destroy the CPU.like this?
I purchased a CPU from that exact listing from xtrememicro a couple weeks ago (see here: ES Xeon Discussion).Hi Guys,
finally a forum where you can discuss ES Xeons without reading "those are illegal RABBLE RABBLE" every other comment. (we don't care)
I got my hands on a brand new Asus z10pe D8 ws for ≈ $200, and thought of getting some ES's to it, for a cheap but powerful server.
I read the article over at techspot and immediately though of the 2630 v4's. But in that article they talk about sr2r7 stepping, and as far as I can tell, this is production stepping, and those are no where near the $200 stated in the article.
This is the listing I'm eyeballing. (i know they're out of stock atm, but I messaged them and they said that they would get a restock)
What do I need to look for in 2630 v4's? And xtrememicro said that it would be compatible with my mobo. What are your experience/thoughts?
Would love any feedback I can get!
Okay, so in HWinfo64 i should look for stepping R0? Sorry for stupid questions, I just want to get it right.
Before looking for alternatives, is there a physical reason the board won't support V4's, or is just because it doesn't have an up-to-date bios?Okay, so I just found out that the motherboard needs to be produced after oct. 2015, and mine is from august 2015, and therefore does not support v4 cpu's. So thats a bummer.
Is the 2630 v3 still a good alternative in the ES world? Any better for the same price?
