HP Proliant DL380 G7


We have a Proliant DL380 G7 server and last week I purchased a processor kit for it. The kit is the exact same processor as the one that is already currently in the server so that I'd have a matching pair.

The problem is I came to install it this weekend to find on powering the server up the fans starting running really fast and loud. After looking at all the possibilities I finally took the processor back out and the server was back to normal.

The kit consisted of 2x extra fans, the cooler, processor and thermal paste.

I currently have the server running fine and I have left the 2x extra fans in, so its something with the processor that is causing the issue. I have no light light up on the front either so am a little stumped as to what it can be.

I have searched Google but everything seems to point to either faulty fan, case open or faulty dimm sensor. I don't have a extra ram sensor, but had extra ram and tried that with no change. Obviously the case wasn't open and its running perfectly with all fans plugged in currently so at a loose end.

Any ideas what it could be your help would be gratefully received.

Thanks in advance.

You can clear the NVRAM and update the BIOS.


The CPU socket can be damaged also.


Install the new CPU in socket 1 to verify that the new processor is ok.


If tha issue remains after nvram/bios update and the server is running fine with the new cpu in socket 1 , you should replace the systemboard.
