I installed a FCX624s into a small wall mounted enclosed rack that is, unfortunely inside of a break room. The Cisco that I am replacing ran very quietly, the FCX is much louder. I have received complaints from some users. Is there a way to lower the fan speed? The room is air conditioned and kept cool throughout the day, so I don't believe overheating will be an issue.

There is no way to lower the fan speed on a FCX, sorry but the best option would be to reuse the FCX somewhere and get an ICX-6430-24 fanless model (these are at a good price so long as only layer 2 is needed in that room with no sFlow)

the data sheet listed acoustic in the range of 51-63 db
you can use a noise meter to see if the fan is out of spec.
You can also check show log to see fan speed changes, and then sh chassis to see the temperature reading and curent fan speed

I think Michael meant to say ICX6430-C12 and/or 6450-C12, the fanless model in ICX6430/6450 platform.
( C stands for compact )
ICX6430-24, ICX6450-24. ICX6430-24P, ICX6450-24P all requires fan(s) to operate.
