    Please can you advice what I´m doing wrong?

    During the last months I have bought hardware for my new server. CPU, motherboard and memory used on eBay. CPU cooler and chassis are new.

    Here is what I got used from eBay:
    - Intel Xeon E5-2650L V4 (marked confidential)
    - Supermicro X10SRH-CLN4F Server Motherboard LGA 2011-3
    - 2x32 GB modules MTA72ASS4G72LZ-2G1A1HG Micron 32GB PC4-17000 DDR4-2133MHz ECC Registered CL15 288-Pin Load Reduced DIMM 1.2V Quad Rank Memory Module

    And bought new:
    - Supermicro CSE-745BTQ-R1K28B-SQ
    - Noctua NH-U9DX i4

    During boot it fails with "System Initializing - B7". I know the error code is memory related but I do not have access to other memory modules to verify it.

    Instead I decided to buy a new memory module which is supported by Supermicro. I bought 1x32 GB HMA84GR7MFR4N-TF Supermicro 32GB 288-Pin DDR4 2133 (PC4 17000) Server Memory (MEM-DR432L-HL01-ER21)

    But still same B7 error message....

    This is getting very expensive for me. I now have 3x32 GB memory modules which I cannot use. But only option I can think about is to continue buying different memory modules until I get something which works...

    What am I doing wrong? Does anyone have experience with memory supported by the X10SRH-CLN4F motherboard?

    Of course I could have bought everything from new. But that would have doubled or tripled the price as hardware is very expensive where I live (Denmark).

    Could it be the ES CPU is not supported?

    Is the BIOS at a level to support the v4 CPU?

    I suspect that the BIOS version is too old to support my E5-2650L V4 CPU. Supermicro suggests to test with a E5-2600 V3 CPU.

    Unfortunately I do not have access to a E5-2600 V3 CPU. Have to buy one....

    You could just get the code for $20 to update the BIOS via IPMI.

    Unfortunately I do not have access to IPMI.

    The company I bought it from on eBay do not know the IP address for IPMI. And since the server will not boot then I cannot get access to update the BIOS.

    Maybe you can borrow one? Or get a cheap one on Ebay and resell...

    I have tried Wireshark, Avanced IP scanner and Ethereal. But could not find the IP address for IPMI.

    Tried from my Ubnt EdgeRouter Lite and could only find this:

    fe80::225:90ff:fefe:c735 dev eth0 lladdr 00:25:90:fe:c7:35 STALE

    The mac address is correct. But I don´t know if I can connect to the IPV6 address.

    With Supermicro boards if you plugin a monitor to the via port, The IP address is displayed on the screen during startup. Is that not happening?

    Finally I got the IP address using Ethereal.

    Got a logon prompt for IPMI. But of course the reseller had changed the default username / password.... ADMIN / ADMIN do not work.

    At least I know that IPMI is working. But looks like I have to buy a V3 CPU.
