I've got a PS6210 set up for a lab environment and while I can see the fan speeds I'm wondering if there is a way to reduce them to let it run a bit warmer but bring the noise level down. Anyone successfully done something like this?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The option exists on my R730s as a setting right in the DRAC, so I doubt having the fans spin slower while at lower temperatures is truly dangerous.
I do totally understand what you are saying. My only reply would be losing a single server is bad, but losing all your data is far worse. Even if you have backups and a DR solution.
Considering I've said repeatedly it's for a lab, I'm not sure why people can't accept that maybe I'm not entirely worried about "Maximum uptime". At this point I'm more inclined to recycle it and call it a day. I'll fire up a Nutanix CE on some quiet boxes.
I really do hear what you are saying. I also have experienced that some else comes along and puts real data on it. I've had cases where it was neglected for years as a lab system. Then RAIDset double faults and now they need that data.
