Using Integrated BMC Web Console to connect to S1200BTL BMC. Using latest bios. Cpu is E3-1220L.
At first I was not sure which sensor shows CPU temp - but only one changes according to CPU load - it's "P1 Therm Margin".
Anyway when machine is off it shows -70 C, under load -40C.
Variation seems ok, but starting values are not.
Any comments on this ?
As per the http://www.intel.com/content/dam/doc/design-guide/xeon-e3-1200-lga1155-socket-specifications-and-gui... Thermal and Mechanical Design Guide:
The TCC activation temperature is calibrated on a part-by-part basis... TCC activation temperature may change based on processor stepping, frequency or manufacturing efficiencies.
This means there is no defined TCC for certain model. However, you don't really need to warry about the actual temperature - just keep the Therm_Margin below zero, and the processor should work well.
