Proliant DL360 G6 + DL180 backplane (+ PCI-E HBA) = Fan noise?

I have read that DL360 G6 fan goes crazy if you put hdd that dosent support (smart 194 temperature?). I have Dl360 g6 in a custom case that can fit 12x 3.5" dl180 g6 backplane. I was thinking of connecting all my drives to that backplane as I have few drives that don't give temperature in right format.

Does anybody have an idea if the DL360 bios is stupid enough to leave the fans alone when all the disk are connected to DL180 backplane? I would at least think it would leave them alone if backplane is connected to some lsi pci-e hba?
