HP Z820 Boot Warning: "932 Warning one of the QPI links not operating"

I have a HP Z820 E5-2670 1TB 16GB, NVIDIA QUADRO 4000 2GB, Intel Pro1000 PT Dual Port
that is giving me a post error "932 Warning one of the QPI links not operating".  If I ignore the error the machine boots up without a problem.

Has anyone see this before, do you know what the resolution is?

It certainly links the two CPUs together as above and with those particular workstations there are meant to be 2 QPI links between the CPUs. You may not even notice performance degradation with just 1 QPI link working

If it's not under warranty or maintenance I would first reseat each CPU but it's more likely to be the motherboard. It's almost guaranteed that it is under warranty since the E5-2670 was only released Q1/12 and those workstations should have 3 years warranty, rightly so since it's more powerful than many servers.

Hrm, well i have never seen this particular error before but what i can tell you is the QPI link is what links the CPU to the chipset and/or another CPU in the case of multi-socket systems. Have you overclocked your GPU by chance?

It'll work fine with just 1 QPI link. If it's still under warranty then log it with HP, if not then I would ignore it as a new motherboard won't be cheap.
