How to reduce fan noise for rx1600

I've got a pretty new rx1600 machine with standard configuration, but this small guy sounds like a aircraft takeoff, i am wondering if there's any system parameter for fan speed so that i can reduce some noise, this is just unbearable. BTW, HP-UX 11.23 is running on this machine right now. No workload but all the fans are running.

Nope you can't change these... this server is designed to go in a datacentre, not in a location where the noise is going to bother someone.

Some Integrity Systems (such as the rx2620 amd rx2660) have "office friendly" configurations which have quieter fans. I don't believe the rx1600 has such a configuration.

I believe that Duncan is correct - there is no "OFS" config for the rx1600. The systems which had "OFS" configs were the rx2600, rx2620 and the rx2660, which is still available.

Even without the OFS setup, my experience is the rx2660 is much quieter than its predecessors.
