I am configuring an R1304SPOSHBNR 1U Rackmount Server.
I would like to know if the e3-1245v6 CPU is compatible with this.
If it is not compatible I would use an e3-1240v6 but this CPU has not got integrated graphics, would I need to have a graphics card in the expansion slot to get VGA video out?
The compatible processor with the Intel® Server System R1304SPOSHBNR is the model Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1240 v6. As you mention before graphics are not embedded on the processor; however, the board comes with graphics included on the Baseboard Management Controller (BMC), the board comes with a VGA video port.
The technical product specification of the https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/server-products/S1200SP_TPS_R1_1_S1200SPL_... Intel® Server Board S1200SP product family gives us more details of the board.
In regard the Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1245 v6, this processor includes graphics and it is only supported by the Intel® Server Board S1200SPLR (uATX).
If you need further assistance, feel free to contact me replying to this post.
