I recently obtained an HP ProLiant DL580 G7 without any HDDs so I went ahead and installed an SSD which works great and the other day I ordered a 2.5" SATA 2 TB HDD (ST2000LMB15).
After installing the new SATA drive, one of the temperature sensors on the servers (sensor 17) has seemingly jumped up to 47 degrees Celsius, the exact temperature necessary for the fans to increase their speed in an endless cycle until they hit their maximum speed (this is loud, WAY too loud!).
After removing the drive, the sensor magically returns to its normal 35 degrees Celsius temperature and the fan speeds begin to return to their normal speeds.
I have found a thread where two different people seem to run into this same issue but no solution was ever posted. At this point, I'm assuming that the HDD is reporting incompatible or incorrect data to the server and ultimately causing this annoying issue.
Right now, the only solution I see is to replace the drive with an enterprise SAS drive, but I wanted to check with the people here first to see if anyone has experienced this issue (or anything similar) before. This is the drive I'm considering replacing it with.
