System Fan Runs Too Fast or Is Noisy on Intel® Server Boards and Intel® Server Systems
A boxed Intel® Server Board might force a system fan to run at full speed to protect electronic components:
Make sure you are using a compatible chassis. Search Chassis compatibility to get the supported chassis information.
For Intel® Server Chassis, see Loud Fan Issues Troubleshooting Wizard.
|Note||For 1U Intel server systems, the fans are expected to run at a higher speed than the fans found on the pedestal/2U chassis. Verify that the status Light-emitting diode (LED) on the front of the chassis is solid green.|
- For non-Intel Server Chassis, try to manually select the fan speed during the FRU/SDR (Field Replaceable Unit/Sensor Data Record) upgrading progress. If the temperature sensor detects that the system is overheated, the system fan is forced to run at full speed.
