I just upgraded my HP uSrv gen8 with a Xeon 1220lv2. I bought this CPU used of course. Arrived from the US of A in a rather crusty state - did a bottle of heat paste burst on it before they packed it? Anyway, after a 100 or so Q tips and a pint of IPA, I exchanged the Celeron for the Xeon and booted into Linux Mint.
All looks good sofar.
However, I’d like to verify that it’s in perfect working order. Running something like Sysbench does not do much, and doing prime number crunching for an hour also does not use all parts of the CPU.
Is there any test for Linux that really verifies the functionality of the CPU, not benchmarks it? Something like The Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool (Windows only)?
