Replace Chassis Fan


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I've been using my Hp Gen 8 Microserver for about 10 months in AHCI running server 2012 r2. Not using RAID at the moment.


I'm quite happy with the server however the Chassis fan really bugs me. It's too loud. I know there are a lot of posts and kinks out there but I've not found my answer yet there seems to be too much out here with no actual answer.


So is it possible to change the chassis fan to a fan that is much quieter?


Like I say I'm happy with the server but this fan really bugs me.

I disconnected the chassis fan and instantly heard a huge difference. The only problem is I can get past post screen as it sees the fan is off. I would like to either disconnect the fan and then monitor the temperatures or replace it with a much quieter one if possible.
