DL360 G3 overheating at midnight

We have a Proliant DL 360 G3 server that keeps overheating at 0:00AM with the CPU at 58C. The server is not doing anything, and we lowered the ambient temperature to 'very cold' with an extra air-conditioning unit. We have no clue on what might cause this heat. Has anyone encountered similar problem before? Is it possible that this is caused by a defect in the server?

Re: DL360 G3 overheating at midnight

there are a number of dl360 g3 owners with the same problem. another board i read showed a dozen users who had replaced the motherboards. it's not worth that much $ anymore, and i'm willing to try whatever i can to keep this server running steady for the next year. any suggestions? we're a really small biz with only 5 users.

Please share the IML logs. 


The issue can be with the processor fan module. 


Before replacing any part, please ensure that the BIOS is up to date. 


P31 (3/3/2005) system rom has modified thermal values to resolve overtemp condition.


Select the appropriate OS and download the BIOS update:


If after updating BIOS, issue persists then replace the processor fan module.
