HP DL320 G3 HIGH FAN NOISE

We have a couple of HP DL320 G3's |  The fans seem to be running @ max speed, is there a way to tone them down.

It was doing this prior to an O/S being put on them.  Something in the BIOS maybe?

I think that that machine has the fan controlled by the systems management health driver, so it should quieten down when the OS boots so long as the Proliant Support Pack is installed.

I have the PSP, I do ot want to install everything, so you think that the health driver will do the trick?

If the Fans are running at full speed even when the OS loads, then you have a few things to consider:

This is a known issue with the DL320 G3 Server.  HP started using hardware coding to control the fan speed at this time instead of the software solution.  They fixed it with a BIOS update.  Simply flash your bios on the server to the current version and your problems should be solved.   Unfortunatley installing the health monitor wont help on the G3.
