Chassis FAN control for SC5650 and S5520SC

Hello,

I have created a Server using the Intel SC5520SC board and openSUSE 11.2. Everything works fine, also the remote control using FreeNX. The Fans of the Chassis allways work on their highest level. Is it possible to reduce the rotation speed of the fans to turn down the sound ofhttp://dict.leo.org/ende?lp=ende&p=Ci4HO3kMAA&search=turn&trestr=0x8002 http://dict.leo.org/ende?lp=ende&p=Ci4HO3kMAA&search=turn&trestr=0x8002 the workstation?

Hey, have you updated the BMC and the SDR?

Also have you got all the fans that are required in the right places etc?

There is no reason for teh fans to be always running at full sapeed unless something is wrong, or out of place...

Thanks a lot.

The update of the SDR reduces the noise of the workstation!

I have the same problem:

Motherboard: S5520SC

Chassis: SC5650WS

All fans connected as instructed: 2 CPU fans, chassis fans to connectors 1,3,5

6x 2GB memory cards in slots A1-F1

I updated the BIOS today, to the latest version

I configured the BIOS - acoustics to: acoustic, open loop

I installed Windows 7 Pro, 64bit

Everything else works fine, just the fans make lots of noise working on full power

Any more ideas???? i don't get why i should be so complicated....
