I am looking for some general advice on server cases for my system
I have the following system:
Intel - S5000PSLSATAR
The form factor is:
SSI EEB (12" X 13")
I currently have it in:
Intel® Server Chassis SC5299DP
Now the problem is the fan that came with it is "very" noisy.
It comes with a Delta fan:
Delta AFB1212SHE-5J1N 120MM Fan
•Air Flow: 151.85 CFM, (Min. 139.49 CFM)
•Noise: 55.0 dBA, (Max. 58 dBA)
So here is my questions:
1. Is it possible to get a different case that would match that form factor?
or is that type of form factor going to be total custom - e.g it is likely
it would only be available from intel?
2. Ok let say "1" is possible would I be putting the components at risk if
I can't find a case fan that would match those specs. Or possibly
a "better" server case might be cooler and be less noisy?
So my objective here is to make it quitter in a safe way if possible.
