    Fans for Supermicro 846

    Hi, I recently acquired a Supermicro 846 chassis and need it to be quiet as possible (I'll be sitting 6 feet away from it). I was looking into doing a full fan swap of the current FAN-0127L4 to the much quieter but much weaker FAN-0104L4. I've also seen some suggest the FAN-0074L4, but I notice...

    1U Server w/Supermicro X9 Board & Fans Switch

    Hi, I just grabbed a cool server for pfSense with a X9SCI-LN4F Supermicro board and a E3-1230 v2. Everything seems to be fine except for the fans. They sound all like rubbing sandpaper and they are almost EOL and have their dead-end very close. The fans currently installed are SUNON...

    Do quiet high pressure fans for a home server exist?

    I've got a full-length 4U server case, so I've got plenty of room to macgyver it and get any size of fans to work somehow, but I need to both create decent suction to pull air over my hot-swap bays and cool what will probably be a big passive AMD EPYC cooler. I can't seem to find anything to...

    Please help me understand the fan controls of Supermicro MB's

    Hi there, I just bought a Supermicro X11SDV-4C-TP8F, and I really like it. The active cooler I bought from Supermicro is extremely noisy, though, and I wanted to have it a bit quieter. I read lots of blog posts about setting up the upper and lower threshold of the fan speed via impitools, as...

    Proliant ml350e gen8 v2 fan replacement

    I'd like to replace the Delta PFR0912XHE-BC90 jet engines with something less crazy, and make this server more home friendly. I've tried hooking up ebmpapst 3252J/2HP but they run full speed and ILO reports fan error. The only suitable datasheet i can find for the delta fans are PFR0912XHE-SP00...

    Replacing PWS-721-R1 Power Supply Fan with a Silent One?

    Hi, Don't know if anyone would know, but is it possible to replace the PWS-721-R1 PSU (in a supermicro case & mobo) with a quieter one? I've attempted shoring pin 17 and it does not seem to be working, so looking to get a quieter fan... but I am not sure if the power supply will allow that - or...

    Help with noise and fans

    Hi, I purchased a "killer" combination: Supermicro X9DR3-LN4F+ motherboard (I didn't know it was an EE-ATX) and Supermicro CSE825TQ-740LPB chassis. I've installed Noctua NH-L9X65 on the CPU's. The Chassis fans are the standard Supermicro 7000 RPM fans I checked the following: I used ipmitool...

    CSE-PTJBOD-CB3 Questions

    Hello all, Frequent lurker here. I think first time posting. Gradually putting together a larger post with my complete build, however I have a couple of loose ends. I’ve reviewed some of the threads on the CB3 but some info I haven’t found or I haven’t seen a direct comparison in my use case...

    Supermicro IPMI Fan Speed Control - GPU System

    Hi guys, I'm having issues setting fan speeds on a 4027GR-TR Supermicro system. System has 8 fans for both CPU/GPU/chassis cooling, and are controlled via the IPMI. I've followed this guide from PigLover but it doesn't seem to work with this system...

    Create Custom Fan Speed Maps for SuperMicro X10 Servers via IPMI

    I got tired of the noise with my SuperMicro X10 Server (4027GR-TRT), but didn't want to get into involved hardware fan swaps which still may produce unsatisfactory results. For reference, the "Optimal" fan setting decided to run half of the fans at 8000RPM at idle, and the other half at 5000RPM...

    Replace fans in Supermicro SM-826TQ 2U case?

    Hi, I have a supermicro 2U case which I love, but it's in my office and it's a little loud for office work (can even be heard over my switch, which is also loud). My girlfriend has also been complaining about it recently. I replaced (most) the fans in the switch with noctunas, which I had to...

    SuperMicro X9SRL-F IPMI fan speed assistance

    Hi All, I've been doing a bit of reading on how to use impitool to adjust the fan thresholds on my motherboard, to prevent the spin up/down issue that some people have previously reported. The basic steps I took were as per Decrease Supermicro IPMI Fan Threshold This MB has 5 headers, FAN 1...

    [Request for Ideas] SuperMicro SC836 PCI Air Flow Management

    I purchased 2 x Sun Flash Accelerator F40 recently, and while they don't arrive until Thursday (and I don't even have a baseline yet), I'd be willing to wager a few bucks that I may need to manage air flow for the PCIe cards. I suggest that as: (a) others have noted they run very hot, (b)...

    How much airflow for X10SDVT-LN4F (Xeon D 1541)?

    I just moved into a new house, and somehow during the move my server died. Here's my build writeup of that (now dead) server. I took this opportunity to do a little upgrade. The rebuild is essentially the same, I just dropped in a new CPU+Motherboard+RAM. Previously it was an ASRock...

    SuperMicro SC836 HDD Temps Too High / Fan Replacements / Your Experiences?

    Hi, As my first foray into a non-COTS server, I purchased a used SuperMicro Super Chassis SC836E16-R1200B via ebay. Having sold my QNAP NAS appliances to offset the cost, I was left with 16 HGST Deskstar NAS HDDs - 6TB that needed to be repurposed. I spent considerable time researching and...

    Can you "splice" a fans speed sensor to more than one connection?

    Hello, So I've recently revived an older Dell DCS 6005 server as a temporary hold in for a failed NAS, until we can budget for a proper NAS. In the interim, I've modified the chassis, took out 1 whole sled, cut the Top lid to accept 1 140MM Noctua ippc-3000 fan pointed down at each sled, and...

    Fan issue with Supermicro X10SDV-TLN4F

    Whenever my unit is powered off but still plugged in, the fan spins at full speed, indefinitely, until I press the power button to being booting, at which point the fan dramatically slows down. Aside from being very annoying, everyone I've talked to on homelab on Reddit have said that this...

    supermicro sc847 45bay jbod - limit fan noise

    Has anyone managed to make the supermicro sc847 45bay jbod chassis a bit more homelab friendly noisewise? I tried powering it on yesterday, and it would be nice not to have a jumbojet in the apartment :) Would be nice not having to sell this.... -J
