|1u server noise||1.2||0.5||3968||92|
There isn’t enough clearance in a 1U chassis for better quality fans like Noctua NH-L9i. These 1U servers are meant to be in temperature-controlled server farms, so noise isn’t an issue. Maybe in the future, we will see a market for better coolers as these 1U servers make their way into the homes of computer enthusiasts.Is the silver stone heatsink good for a 1U server?
Since the Silver Stone heatsink keeps the CPU temps down, the blower fan runs at low RPMs, reducing noise. My 1U server sits in a cool basement, so your results may vary. The CPU temperature sensor indicates LOW on this Supermicro motherboard and doesn’t give out the specifics.Why are there so many fans on my server?
Servers have so many fans on them so that they can keep the machine running at a certain temp. Fine go ahead and replace the cpu fan but make sure that you can get the lid back on again otherwise you disrupt the air flow from the other fans and they won't be able to do their job properlyCan a Supermicro riser card be used in a 1U server?
The Supermicro riser card aligned correctly in the CSE512 Chassis without any issues. There isn’t much clearance in the 1U server, even for small flash drives. You will want to purchase a tiny footprint USB flash drive if you intend to plug it into the USB slot on the motherboard.
