HP ProLiant DL360 G3 Thermal Problems


we have trouble with the temperature of a proliant dl360 g3(single xeon 3.06ghz). within very few minutes of working with cpu-intensive tasks the server gets too hot and initiates a shutdown (as long this feature is acivated in the system rom).

even by configuring something in the system rom the fans speed up to the max-level.

our other dl360 g3 servers haven't these problems. system rom is up-to-date.

doesy anyone have some information about this problem?

Any chance there is a loose heatsink? Maybe the thermal gel is not completely covering the processor. Problem here is that the heatsink is technically a 'single use' item!

Other than that the device is clearly faulty - Ring HP and get them to come out an fix it - Especially if you have other devices working OK in the same environment.
