Fan noise in a DL380

I have a problem.
Every 15-20 minutes the server fans start running at 70-80% of full speed for approximately 40 seconds, then slow down to normal (quiet) speed for 15-20 minutes and cycle again.
The BIOS version is 1.36 of February 2018, I tried to update in online mode on windows server 2016 but without success (error before installation). I would now like to try to do the offline update (version 2.42 feb2021) using this method:

Hello,

This should work. In addition, you may also connect the USB drive to iLO and use the iLO Virtual Media, containing the bootable BIOS update image and boot from it.
