Hi Patrick,Richard, I sent an e-mail to see if I can find a part number for the fan that came with my Avoton board. Rumor has it that the fan is used by their engineers.
Is that a normal load?Hi Patrick,
did you ever receive a reply from SuperMicro?
Basically I'm having the same issue as Richard. The Avoton board is mounted in a very small case, and a single 50mm casefan does not cut it when I run 8 instances of burnP6 (cpuburn). After 15 minutes, the temperature of each cpu core exceeds 90C.
Either I add a 60mm 4-pin TPM fan directly on top of the CPU using some sort of shroud (part number?), or I need to add 2 more 50mm casefans. Obviously I prefer to go the CPU fan route.
Well that depends entirely what you use your system for, doesn't it? One person's 'normal' usage is bound to be an other person's outlier usage scenario.Is that a normal load?
I have had the same issue with this board. Was unable to fix it. I will note that I have not tried again since updating to the most recent bios.Have any of you installed esxi onto a thumb drive using the internal USB3 header?
I'm using a Sandisk thumb drive on mine and am not seeing it as an available option. I'm booting from 5.5 Update 2 (VMware-VMvisor-Installer-5.5.0.update02-2068190.x86_64.iso).
I have tried various changes in bios with no luck.
- USB3.0 Support: enabled (tried both ways)
- XHCI Hand-off: enabled (tried both ways)
- EHCI Hand-off: enabled (tried both ways)
- USB Mass Storage Driver support: enabled
- Legacy USB Support: disabled (tried both ways)
- Port 60/64 emulation: disabled (tried both ways)
Bios recognizes my thumb drive so I'm guessing it's a USB3 driver issue. Any ideas?
