almost noise-less

Can't quite imagine noiseless microserver stock fan setup. My microserver sounds like jet engine with the stock fan and I don't know the way to make it sound not so loud.

 

How could you acheive this result?

Nothing really. It was always very quiet, only had the 'chirping crisis' just once.
It is only very loud when I restart the server, but as soon as the boot sequence is finished, the fan throttles down to low noise levels.

Sorry, but that's it. I just recall a driver pack, or update pack, for the server once had the fan running faster than normal. But that was fixed quite quickly. No idea how, when or where to find this atm. ;)
Maybe a search on the forum might help out.

What CPU and RAID controller (and if b120i, what mode, AHCI or RAID) do you use?

 

I've got E3-1260L and P222 PCIE RAID that affects heat and fan speed for sure.

G1610T & b120i in RAID mode. Nothing fancy ;)

Celeron produces not so much heat and b120i also known to increase fan speed in AHCI mode but be ok in RAID mode.

 

One day you still need to be ready for fan replacement...

I ended up buying a HP fan with the 6 pin connector, just to cut the connector off and solder it onto a 4 pin PWN fan as per SilentPCReview.

Made a world of difference without worrying about creating a controller.

Has been running for many years without fault.

In fact, Mihai's scheme is really bad as Microserver is going into loop RD lock detection. If you open the SPC link you will be able to clearly read the datasheet prohibition to do so ).
I would like to find some time to make some measurements with oscilloscope before putting everything together. But if you think I slould hurry I can create a topic with all the information I found regarding this topic.

Would you be so kind to tell me the manufacturer and model?

      As I have decided to make some improvements on my afermarket fan controller I am trying to try implementing thermal control or mobo PWM control of additional fans, but before that I'm in a great need to inderstand how much fan count the controller should be ready to support. As this forum doesn't support polls I have nothing to do but ask you to reply on this topic.
       
      What I would be thankful to know:
      1. How many fans have you installed in your Microserver.
      2. What fans do you use (size, 3/4-pin connector) and where are they located, also what are they cooling.
      3. What way do you power these fans?
       
      Thank you in advance for your feedback!

      Hi 
      My HP Proliant Microserver Gen 8 won't install HP Tools when I have running HP Smart Update Manager. 
      even when I have trying to install via Intelligent Provising, Windows Server 2019.
       
      Se image below 🙂 That's I missing.. ;-(
