Moe:

Do you have this server rackmounted? If so, make sure SW2 pin 3 is set on. (See: http://h200001.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/UCR/SupportManual/TPM_143091-004/TPM_143091-004.pdf#page=127 )
Also, you can add redundant fans and redundant power supplies to this server to increase airflow. (so long as the room is cooled)
Enjoy!

Re: Proliant ML 370 g1

Moe,

Is it possible that the airflow baffle has been removed from the system at some point?

This foam air baffle guides air properly accross the CPU's. Some customers remove it and forget to put it back. It's only when they add a second CPU or more memory that the system then begins to overheat.

Have a look at the attached image. This item should always be installed. It's held in place by velcro strips which can become damaged.

Regards,

Brian
