    WHEA Logger - Event ID 17 - 5520/x58


      An eight year old Supermicro pedestal server has started to freeze and/or BOD. The error just before this is Event 17, WHEA logger.


      It points to


      Bus 0

      Device 5

      Function 0


      and that leads to


      Intel 5520/ x58 I/O Hub PCI Express Root Port 5-340C


      OS is Server 2018 R2


      Any help on pinning this down would be appreciated.

            Thank you for your reply Diego


            Server is SuperMicro SYS-7046T-6F Dual LGA Xeon




            MB is X8DT6-F


            X8DT6-F | Motherboards | Products - Super Micro Computer, Inc.


            Processors are 2 x Xeon X5680


            All temperatures seem normal, but when it throws the toys out and freezes the temperature warning light comes on shortly afterwards


            If it does BSD the screen is still frozen at the point before/at WHEA Logger is thrown (doesn't show the BSD, just a lot of drive activity) - makes me suspect the graphics card (NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450)


            It's very random - there was a BSD about eight months ago, but I didn't retain the information as it ran without problems until recently.


            Of late it can run two or three days without incident, then fall over two or three times in succession, sometimes during login


            A corrected hardware error has occurred.

              I would like to recommend you to update the firmware/BIOS and the chipset driver. Due to the fact that you have an OEM Server System.

                Given that this box has run for eight years without any issues I don't feel that firmware and/or drivers could be the problem and that it is hardware or cooling related.


                This is the only 2008 R2 box remaining, all the rest are rack mounted Server 2016 units - but I did notice the CPU temps for those are around 33-34 C


                Here we have temps on one CPU hitting 83. Are we approaching a range that would cause this behavior?
