Proliant 1850r 6/500 Fan Noise!?!

Is there anyway i can control it? I just did a fresh install of W2k Advance Server and the fan is still running at full speed. But my other fresh install on a ML370, the fan slowed down right away.

Hello Arthur,
Are you running the latest BIOS?? If yes then how about the support pack?? I mean which version of support pack(Smart Start SW) do you have installed on the server??

Regards,
