The current BIOS setting allows for users to control Fan Profile.
Under the Advanced | System Acoustic and Performance Configuration screen in BIOS Setup, users can tune their systems depending on environmental conditions and customer requirements. For users who desire quieter system performance, acoustic mode is available under the 'Set Fan Profile' setting.
If selected, the system will favor using throttling of processors and memory over boosting fans to cool the system if thermal thresholds are met.
If performance mode is selected, the system will use fan control to provide primary system cooling before attempting to throttle processors or memory.
The 'Altitude' setting assists the system fan control algorithm to determine the optimal fan speed for the environment where the server is deployed.
||In order for the acoustic and performance profile to work, the correct Intel chassis must be chosen or if using a third party chassis, the correct number of system fans is chosen when programming the FRUSDR as this dictates how the sensors are programmed into the system.|
