DL585 G2 Fan Speed

Hi folks,

 

Is it possible to manually reduce the system fan speed of my DL585G2?

 

I use this as a vm test box in a lab rather than in a rack in a DC & it's pretty noisy.  Going by the system temps reported threes no need for the fans to be going as hard as they are.

 

I tried removing a couple of the redundant fans but it appears you can only remove 1 fan before the system forces a shutdown which again seems like overkill.

 

The system is great for what I use it for but I may have to get rid and get something more flexible as far as fan control goes if I can't reduce the noise level.

 

Regards

 

Mark
