HP DL380 G3 Fans noisy but I've only just got it....
Posted on 2010-08-17
I have just bought an HP DL380 G3 for £100 from eBay. The trouble is I never realised how noisy the fans were in it.
All I wanted it for was something more powerful to play around with and learn from. It was meant to sit in my bedroom but it is so loud.
I have only just got it so it doesn't have an OS on it. Although I have read reports saying that the noise quietens down once an OS is installed using the SmartStart CD.
All I want is a reply from someone who has one of these servers that has tried this and knows it works or doesn't work. So I can make a decision as to whether to send it back.
Thanks in advance.
