Analytics1040 system board repair needed
Closed, ResolvedPublic


While adding thermal paste to the cpu's for analytics1040, a piece of the dried and flaky paste came off and landed inside the pins of the cpu slot. I thought I was able to get it all out but it turns out a piece remained and during inspection, it is now crushed inside the pins.

To be sure I swapped the DIMM from A to B and no change l
I swapped cpu's and no change leaving only the system board.

The server is under warranty so I will create a ticket with Dell.

Event Timeline

The new system board has been ordered through Dell but is back ordered....Should hopefully be in this week.

The new motherboard has been added. System is back online. Resolving this task.
