ML350 G6 PCIe + fanspeed + bios

I have a ML350 G6 server and it appears that the server increases the fanspeed when i put any device inside a PCIe slot. Since i run this server as a home/office server this is highly annoying.

Questions are:

  1. does the latest BIOS resolve this annoying "feature" ?
  2. what is the minimum care pack to buy to be enabled to download the latest BIOS version?

The latest BIOS version is only downloadable when you have an active support contract, but HPE seems to have at least 80.000 care-pack versions.
