I am running DSM6.2 using loader 1.03 on a Dell Optiplex 980 workstation. Since my upgrade from 6.1 to 6.2 I am experiencing high noise from a fan. It turns out that the noisy fan is the one from the graphics card - not the main system fan. The GC is also warm to touch, as if working hard. What's got a display-less server to do with the graphics card? This was not happening under 6.1. Anyway, I tried removing the GC, but then the machine doesn't boot at all. The onboard monitor output is not working - no matter with or without GC, regardless of any BIOS settings. At some point I've reconnected the monitor from onboard to GC output after boot and I saw a message saying something that processor is not capable of supporting on-board video. I am therefore stuck with noisy GC. Does anyone have any idea about possible solution to the noise problem?
