Processor replacement

Follow instructions in this section to remove and install a processor.

Before reusing a processor or heat sink, make sure you use Lenovo proven alcohol cleaning pad and thermal grease.
The processor in your server can throttle, temporarily lowering speed to reduce heat output, in response to thermal conditions. In instances where the throttling period is of extremely short duration (100 ms or less), the only indication will be an entry in the event log. In these instances the event can be ignored and processor replacement is not required.
