HP ML150 G6 Fan Noise

Bought ML150 G6 recently, installed with windows 2003. Knowing that the fan is like jet engine while POST. No problem, but the regular operation fan noise is kind of problem for small office. Some review said that ML150 G6 is a "very silent" machine. ??? Front / Rear fan speed is around 1,500rpm from BIOS reading. Anyway to reduce the noise or reduce the fan speed? I really don't think the CPU(1) / HDDs (3/1TB/7200RPM) need so much air flow. Thanks for help.

Re: HP ML150 G6 Fan Noise

The ML110 G5 series is pretty quiet.
(In my experience. The G4 was noisier. Haven't tried G6 if that exists)

The linked version may be outdated, check for newer versions here:

Then go to LO100 web page and check for fan health and temperatures.

Hope this helps!
