ML110 G9 accelerates fan with Nvidia Quadro M2000

Hi, good afternoon.

I've just incorporated this graphics card to the server, installing all its drivers provided by Nvidia for the Windows Server 2016 operating system. I also made a scan with SPP to see if there was any firmware for this graphics card, but there was nothing. Report that the server is in the dynamic/balanced power system.

The thing is that the PCI fan has gone from working at 6% to 20%, a considerable increase in the fan speed. Please note that the graphics card is proprietary to HP, which is what the documentation for this server indicates as compatible.

iLO also does not display any information or serial number of the graphics card. A photo has been added to the post.

Is there any way to reduce this 20% to the previous state?

I use the server to work at home, and the noise is quite annoying.

Hello,

 

Greetings for the day.

 

Please ensure that the driver and firmware are up to date for the card.

 

We have checked the HPE website however there are no drivers mentioned for Win Server 2016.

 

 Although while checking the NVIDIA site, I came across the below driver for Nvidia Quadro M2000 card:

 

https://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/111574/en-us

 

You may update the same driver and check the behaviour.

 

Disclaimer: Please note that the above driver is provided by NVIDIA and HPE can not confirm if the same will work or not as the same has not been tested on the HPE end.

 

Also please ensure that the server has sufficient fans installed to support the card as per the quick specs of ML110 Gen9 Server.

 

Also set the below performance settings on BIOS level and check the functionality:

 

Power Management Options > HP Power Profile > Maximum Performance

Power Management Options > HP Power Regulator > HP Static High Performance Mode

Power Management Options > Advanced Power Management Options > Collaborative Power Control > Disabled

Power Management Options > Advanced Power Management Options > Minimum Processor Idle Power Core State > No C-States

Power Management Options > Advanced Power Management Options > Minimum Processor Idle Power Package State > No Package State   

 

 

Thanks

I had tried different energy efficiencies, but the PCI fan was still at 20%.

As for the drivers, I can't put one that was released in 2016 and hasn't had any revisions, that's either spoiling the graphics card or losing performance. I read that these servers are quite fussy when you install something on the X16, and that's exactly what happened to me. I have a P440 4GB controller underneath, and I've never had any problems. I finally gave up and removed the graphics card from the server, the sound was quite annoying. Thanks a lot!
