R2308IP4LHPC fans run at maximum speed, regardless of Acoustic/Performance settings

JEich

I recently purchased an old R2308IP4LHPC 2U server. Unfortunately, it sounds like a jet engine all the time. I changed the bios settings to auto throttling, acoustic profile, and quite fan idle mode enabled in the System Acoustic and Performance Configuration menu, yet nothing changes. I have noticed that the processor clock speed is not being throttled (i.e., each cpu core is at stock frequency) yet the cpu utilization is reported at less than 5%, so it's definitely idling.

Any suggestions how to get the fan speeds to manager correctly?

Hello,

 

 

As the first recommendation please use the https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/multimedia/5890_serv_loud_fan_ts/index.html troubleshooting wizard for resolving high fan noise issues.

 

 

You can also download and perform a BIOS recovery for your server board, you can download the latest version https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26956/Intel-Server-Board-S2600IP-and-Intel-Workstation-Boa... here. You can find instructions https://downloadmirror.intel.com/26956/eng/ReleaseNotes_BIOS_02.06.0006.txt here.

 

 

I hope this helps.

 

 

Best regards,
