    @OBasel there is a known issue with HP fan-control where in IT mode the onboard controller doesn't properly send some kind of data back causing higher than normal fan speeds. I can't find it anymore though.

    I bought the chassis in your first link. It does -not- support v2's. Has latest bios. Not sure what else to try.

    Should work with a mellanox "qsa" adapter (qsfp->sfp adapter). Haven't tried on this specific card yet, but that works on other mellanox 40g nics. <$20 per adapter.

    Hi, I bought one S6500 chassis too, and it doesn't work with Ivy Bridge V2 CPUs. All nodes have latest Bios and iLO.

    Any thoughts or tip will be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    I've not had any luck with that and the v2's. There are motherboard versions that support the v2's. The most foolproof way is just to buy the modules with v2 cpus already installed -- they would have to screw up pretty bad to give you an incompatible motherboard at that point.

    I am incredibly glad my server rack is full and I can't buy anymore hardware to shove in there...
