DL360 G3 fan noise

Hello - I'm sure that this subject is beaten to death. But, I have some questions on this whole fan speed thing. I work for a company that is gracious enough to allow me to take home some decommed hardware. This happens to be a couple of DL360's. Both machines are identicle as far as I can tell. Same mobo, cpu's, memory and BIOS version. However, when I power up one machine it's as loud as a 747. The other is very quiet. OK, it's no secret, it's the fans. I've read posts about installing some sort of health drivers. My question with that is if I need to install the drivers to reduce the fan speed, why is it that both servers run at different speeds without even having the hard disks in place? Are these drivers more of a firmware? If anyone can help me with the fan speed, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
