Potential Fan Issues Updating BIOS and Loading BIOS Default Values for Intel® Server Boards and Systems


Last Reviewed: 23-Dec-2016

After updating to the latest BIOS and loading the BIOS default values, the system may experience the following after the operating system reaches the GUI screen

  1. the fans would boost to high and would stay high, or
  2. the fans would boost to high and then would ramp down and repeat the scenario

To workaround this fan issue, during POST, go to BIOS by pressing <F2> -> Advanced Menu -> Processor Configuration -> Processor C6 Report -> Disabled (value would be enabled when BIOS default is loaded).

Boot to the operating system and the fan issue would be resolved.
