    High temperatures on motherboard S5500BC

    Decided to just go for it and bought a super cheap 40mm fan and screwed it straight into the heatsink and brought it down to about 50 degrees. Doesn't make any more noise and brings down the temps so I'm happy
  2. Hi, I'm running Unraid on my S5500BC motherboard using both cpu slots and it's showing very high temps for the "Intel5500 - MB temp". At Idle it's hitting around 77 degrees celcius, whereas the cpus are sitting at 28 degrees. I've attached an image with an arrow pointing to possibly the heatsink that's hitting this high temp, as it feels extremely hot . Do I need to be worried about it hitting so high at idle? Can I get a fan to clip onto it to cool it down?

    Server power supply replacement

    Brill. Thank you. I got the server with everything in it with 1 cpu for £40 then threw in an extra Intel Xeon E5620 cpu for £4 so I'm extremely happy with price to performance. The motherboard is the Intel® Server Board S5500BC. This should bring the temps down a lot, especially in the room its sat in.
  4. Hi, I'm running a server in a SC5650DP case with Unraid, and most of the time it sits idle waiting for Plex streams. I have a UPS running the server which shows power stats, and it uses about 150 watts idle. It has a E35746-004 power supply but it's constantly kicking out blistering hot heat. I'm trying to look for a replacement which is a lot cooler and quieter, it's a 600w (E35746-004) power supply. I'm not sure where to start looking. Help would be appreciated.
  5. Looks like i've sorted it, if the server goes down it doesn't bring down the rest of the websites, here is my reverse proxy config; <VirtualHost *:80> ServerAdmin administrator@test.co.uk ProxyRequests off DocumentRoot /var/www ProxyPreserveHost On ServerName testsite.co.uk <Location /> ProxyPass http://testsite.co.uk/ ProxyPassReverse http://testsite.co.uk/ Order allow,deny Allow from all </Location> </VirtualHost>
  6. I've got an apache server running a couple of wordpress websites and also a reverse proxy to another server which I use for testing. However, if the test server which the reverse proxy points to goes down, it brings all the websites down with the error of; The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later. Is there any way to stop the reverse proxy bringing down all the sites if the reverse proxy cant find the site? Here is my reverse proxy config; <IfModule mod_proxy.c> ProxyRequests Off ProxyPreserveHost On ProxyReceiveBufferSize 4096 <Proxy *> Order deny,allow Allow from all </Proxy> ProxyPass / http://testsite.co.uk/ ProxyPassReverse / http://testsite.co.uk/ <Location /> Order allow,deny Allow from all </Location>
  7. Hi, I'm moving into a new build house soon and i'm looking at options for internet (Always a priority) and I'm looking at business internet which has higher upload speeds and static external ip addresses which would be very useful for my self-hosting website. In the UK, are you able to order business internet to a residential home or is it for strictly only for businesses? been looking at providers such as XLN

    Beginner 3d Printer

    Hi, I'm looking at purchasing a 3d printer as a beginner. I'm brand new with 3d printing but I want to have a play around. I've had a look at a couple of the cheaper ones such as the ones listed below but I'm not sure which one is the best or if I should be looking for something else maybe a little pricier? Thanks. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Comgrow-Creality-Ender-Printer-Aluminum/dp/B07BR3F9N6/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?s=industrial&ie=UTF8&qid=1531132833&sr=1-2-spons&keywords=3d+printer&psc=1 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Geeetech%C2%AE-Acrylic-Pro-Unassembled-excellent/dp/B01GJDO9I0/ref=sr_1_5?s=industrial&ie=UTF8&qid=1531132833&sr=1-5&keywords=3d+printer https://www.amazon.co.uk/Anet-Upgrade-Printer-Printing-Reprap/dp/B06XXHRL8Y/ref=sr_1_6?s=industrial&ie=UTF8&qid=1531132833&sr=1-6&keywords=3d+printer

    Server picky with ram

    I'm a bit of a nooby with servers and i'm having a ram issue with a dual cpu server of mine. I'm current running a mix of ram (non-ecc and ecc) which has been working so far. (2 sticks of 4gb and 2 of 2gb which i've found from spare boxes) across two cpu's (I'll post the full specs at the bottom). It's very picky, and only works in certain ram slots/configuration and have got it so it finds them all and posts. I bought some more ram to replace the 2x 2gb sticks. - the Hynix HMT151R7BFR4C-H9 4gb x 2. but replacing the 2gb sticks of non-ecc results in the server beeping and not posting - sometimes getting through but the slots show up as disabled. However putting the two sticks in by themselves results in a post, so the ram isn't faulty. Would it be an idea to buy another 2 sticks of the Hynix HMT151R7BFR4C-H9 to have 4 sticks of the same ram? Specs: Motherboard: S5500BC (https://ark.intel.com/products/36601/Intel-Server-Board-S5500BC) CPU 2x : Intel Xeon E5620 2.40GHz 12M LGA1366 CPU Processor SLBV4 RAM: 2x 9965525-033.A00LF (4gb each) 2x KHX1600C9D3/2GX (2gb each) newly bought ram: 2x Hynix HMT151R7BFR4C-H9

    CPU fan running max

    Would something like this work? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4Pin-Fan-Hub-Speed-Controller-Support-10-Way-SATA-Power-Supply-for-PC-AC1312/163054878683?epid=2290649854&hash=item25f6d3ffdb:g:7xEAAOSw~Bha~-ED Bit worried the temp sensor might keep it on the high, so perhaps a manual one like this? Although both fans are 4pins and this is for 3 pin. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Gelid-Solutions-Fan-Speed-Controller-with-Manual-RPM-Control-Case-Fans/272803951179?epid=1405241090&hash=item3f8461f24b:g:ySAAAOSwmQBZkJEG

    CPU fan running max

    Would it be an idea to find a hardware fan controller to try to reduce the fan speed?

    CPU fan running max

    I'm running Proxmox virtual environment (Linux) And a windows vm inside, speedfan on the vm shows up mainly blank with only the hard drive temp. I've tried finding a way to do it in the base linux OS such as pwmconfig but get an error of 'No pwm-capable sensor modules installed'

    CPU fan running max

    I have recently bought an Intel SC5650DP Tower Server with 1x Xeon Quad E5620 2.40GHz and 8GB RAM for cheap as chips (£40) and works great. The only issue is that the CPU fan immeditaly hits max after POST (And case fan, which i've unplugged to quieten it a little) with the warning light flashing amber and is incredibly loud. I've checked the temps and the cpu is currently rocking at around 28 degrees with some load on it within linux. I'm not really sure where to start looking. I've trailed through the bios and cant seem to see anything to do with fan speeds. Help would be appreciated.
