M1000e fan control

Hi, recently I added a M610X with Tesla C1060 GPU to M1000e. Then all the fans are working at the highest speed (around 9050 RPM) and never calm down. The current configuration is only two blades: M610 and M610X and the temperature is around 18C (=64F). So I think it is not necessary for all the fans to be at the highest speeds. Is there anyway to control the fan speed?
We are all suffering from the big noise, thanks in advance.

For your reference, the firmware version is:
CMC: 3.03.A00.201010111521
iKVM: 01.00.01.01
iDRAC6: 3.02 (Build 😎

RE: M1000e fan control

Do you have any amber indicator lights on the chassis or servers? Are all of the power supply models plugged into power and the cords seated properly?

Hi,
We got one critical error on M610X: "Mem ECC Warning: Memory sensor, transition to critical from less severe ( DIMM_A6 ) was asserted" which causes the LED blinking in amber. But I think this has nothing to do with the fan speed.
Usually, when the bios starts, the half of fans reach to 9000 RPM and when OS starts all fans reach to 9000 RPM. I consulted DELL CS in Japan, but was only told to wait until the next firmware fix.
Currently only 3 power supplies are installed on M1000e. I think it is enough for 2 blades.

Just checking some basics. I have seen the fans rev up when there are errors on the chassis. What version of CMC are you running?

Hi,
The CMC version is: 3.03.A00.201010111521
I think it is the latest.
As for the error, we replaced memory module at A6 but got the same error, so
maybe it came from the mother board or no actual error but just message only..
