I use this as a Media Server in my lounge at home and with the B120i with 4x3TB drives in the bays in RAID10 for storage and an SSD off the Optical as OS it all works great with low noise as fan speed keeps at 6%.
As others may know, if you set the Controller to AHCI or legacy the fan goes loud and stays loud at over 33%.
I decided to buy a P222/512 Smart Array to give me RAID5 plus option later to add an external 4 bay mini SAS housing for a further 4 drives controlled by the P222 (potentially 8 disks in RAID5)
All fitted and recognised perfectly in ACU but then the dreaded fan noise again but now at over 54%. Spent all day on it before finally starting a long chat session with HP.
To cut a long story short, the iLO4 can only handle built-in controllers and it totally handles temp monitoring/fan speed.
Long transcript attached if anyone wants to follow the details.
