I use a Sun Fire X2100 M2 (Opteron) 1U rack server for development purposes, and the system has these noise specifications:
Idle, at or below 25° C 6.9B Max, at ambient: 7.3B
In other words, it's rather loud and I'd like to bring the level down somewhat, if possible, by switching to low-noise fans.
My questions, in order of priority (descending): - Which low-noise fans suitable for 1U rack servers are out there? - Can you recommend any of those over others? - Are fans standardized in a way so I can be sure they'll fit before buying some? - What kind of decrease on the noise level could I possibly expect?
Thanks a lot in advance.
