Add additional Fans to P4000XXSFDR

Simple question!

With the system set to performance (S1200SPL board), the fans are quite loud.

Does anyone know if I can add additional fans to the P4000XXSFDR chassis? The MoBo supports additional fans and I would like the system to stay cooler and not spin up the fans so often.

thanks,

-Joe

Hi Caesar-

I didn't see your last post until just now. Yesterday I visited the office and did swap the power supplies. What should we look for now, or should I re-send the logs after X days? Assuming I don't need to RMA.

Thanks,

-Joe

Caesar-

I spoke with support today and they want me to now update to the latest firmware - not sure why this wasn't requested before. I'll get that done asap. Once done, which logs do you need to see to validate the fan issue has stopped?

Thanks,

-Joe
