I have some HP Proliants running but those are no fun under your desk even if the fans are running at a lower level. So it is better to put the server in a separate room with proper cooling or else you are surely going to get hit with faulty hardware because of the heat. In short a server needs cooling and most cooling gives noise, that is just the way it is. Regards, Johan Hendriks No virus found in this outgoing message.
