I am trying to do pcie passthough in HP Proliant 380p gen8 (for the storage controller p420i), alot of failures on the road but after an important success I had noticed a very loud fan noise! all of them were 100% and the noise like crazy !
To clarify: that was after doning step (10.9.2) in this page: https://pve.proxmox.com/pve-docs/pve-admin-guide.html#qm_pci_passthrough and restart, I got this good message (supposedly?): Kernel driver in use: vfio-pci.
But at the same time I got this issue with fans, so I undo that and restart, then the fans work normal again.
I did test different settings after that, but I think now this is the main issue.

Any solution for that?
