Proliant DL320 Noisy

We just got an HP Proliant DL320 Rack Server and it's producing this humming noise that is really loud. It sounds like the fans inside. Can anyone tell me if this is normal or is there a way to stop this noise. Just to give you an idea on how loud this humming sound is, I can still hear the sound even when I'm wearing ear plugs.

Re: Proliant DL320 Noisy

Hi Oleg, I just read the article and the first thing I've noticed is the brand of the cooling fans. I have the Sunon Brand installed on my server. The brand in question on the article is the Nidec brand. Do you have any other ideas?
