Well if you mean a lot of disk then you mean a lot of heat, and with that comes 
good cooling and with that comes fans and most of them when running at full 
speed will give you some noise.

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.
