Waking this thread up a little....

Has anyone had any luck trying to find bios updates for the s2ml?
Mine came with a pair of 2650's which are reported in the bios as 2Ghz cpu's but are shown as running at 1.8Ghz. Windows reports as 1.8 too. Anyone seeing similar?

Currently having much fun trying to get a pcie riser that will fit...
The one that I've got from Bargain Hardware has the same problem as yours, the max clock speed is only 1.8 GHz which is supposed to be 2.0 GHz. I also check in the bios setting, it shows the freq ratio range is only 12-18, but when I check on the CPUz program it should be 12-28.

@NATEX I noticed that the 10 cluster system with 32 gb costs more than the 10 cluster system with 128 gb. Is this an incorrect price? Is the system still avail for $3850?

Did anyone had any luck inserting a graphics card on the PCIe port of the Quanta server?

I would like to insert an Zotac Geforce GTX 1050 Ti ZT-P10510A-10L Mini. You guys think it will be possible?

One of my servers came with an IPMI (BMC) firmware 1.10 and the other with 1.11, i tried to upgrade to the 1.26 version for the "STRATOS-S210-X12MS" using the web interface while keeping all existing configurations... it didnt end up well : the flash worked but then as stated on the readme i stopped and started the server but the fans kept at full speed and it took around 5 minutes before it POST with a "BMC initialization failed" message.

I installed a system (Debian Jessie which works perfectly) on the server as is and used socflash to flash the firmware and this time it worked as expected, i will now try the latest 3.29 firmware.


ps: i tried the S210-X12MS firmwares as the BIOS version on my servers is the "s2ms3b10" which is listed as the latest S210-X12MS which has a very similar motherboard.

Both 1.27 and 3.29 doesnt work well : they report "Firmware Revision : 0.0" on "ipmitool bmc info" and the web admin shows a blank page on 1.27 and the 3.29 produce a content encoding error from the browser.

I flashed again 1.26 and everything seems fine with it so far.

Good afternoon.
Is there any way to run V2 processors on this server?
Perhaps there is a bios with its support?
By the way, where can I download the latest BIOS for Quanta 2ML?
