Tiny advice to owners of DL360 G8 who have it at home like i do.
When it boots up it will go to full on jet engine mode for 20 seconds or so.
Not great way to wake up your family i can tell you that.
Speaking from experience from 21 hours ago.

    Its not very popular during work hours either, easily drowns out any phone calls within 10 meters :P

    Was the same with older tower model servers from HP.

    I have had people coming down through the corridor when installing at customer location wondering what was going on ;)

    @Voxera I can see why.
    The funny thing is I hear people oh it can't really be that loud. So I decided to record the damn thing as I pulled out one fan to make all of them at max. Then they truly understood the pain.

    @Haxk20 I don’t think a recording really can do the sound justice but it might be a good indicator. :)
