Good day. I have a server R1304GZ4GC with 2 processors. If i want to extract one of them what will i have to do except extraction, of course. After i'd done this coolers started to fan with maximum speed. Do i need to change BIOS options, turn off some functions? Or maybe replace RAM?

Hello,

 

 

Make sure to remove the processor located on CPU socket # 2. Remove all memory from that processor bank as well. Regarding BIOS settings, there are no changes required at a BIOS level. To control the fans run a firmware update to the latest version, once the "SDR" is updated the sensors on the fans should re-detect the hardware again and go back to normal speed unless there is a hardware failure on a different component:
