HP Proliant DL160 G5. Extremely noisy fans

Hi

I have 2 SERVERS HP Proliant DL160 G5 and a big and noisy problem. Extremely noisy fans.

I would like to known if something could help me.

Please I know fans are necessary, but I have a project for my old servers to be used for mining with a different and external Silent Cool system

I only would like to know how i could disconnect them without BIOS error.

Maybe doing cable bridge or other....

It's unbearable

 

Thanks and regards

You can't disconnect the fans.  Make sure the cooling options in RBSU are not set to max or enhanced cooling.  I can't recall on that generation server, some  older systems required the health drivers to be loaded for the fans to spin down

Hello, 

Easiest option will be to swap fan, cost around £8 on ebay. Usually when berrings go down fans are quite noisy.

446633-001 that is a part number

Kind Regards
