I’m looking at a CPU upgrade for the HL15. It comes with a Supermicro X11SPH motherboard which means LGA3647, as you likely already know.
Any suggestions on a CPU for this board? i found a xeon gold 6154 with 18c/36t @3ghz/turbo3.7ghz for $220 on ebay. That’s my front runner so far. I found the included CPU, a Xeon Bronze 3204, to be a little slower than I’d like for VM work.
I upgraded to a Xeon Silver 4210. I didn’t really look at the golds unfortunately, but I think the 10 core 20 threads should be enough? Double check the max size RAM sticks you can use with that gold processor, I feel like first gen ones couldn’t do 16GB DIMMS but I think I only saw that in passing on one forum post.
