We noticed the noise issue when we received our Xpander also. Our hardware config is a bit different, with 2 Quadro 4000s + 1 RED Rocket + 1 PCIe host adapter for a Matrox MXO2 mini.

Initially, I connected a fan controller in series with the Cubix chassis fan, which allowed me to slow it down and reduce the noise (and airflow) significantly. I wasn't too concerned about the Quadro cards, as they have external exhausting fan units. I was concerned that the RED Rocket card wouldn't have enough airflow however.

I ended up simply cutting a hole in the wall (our Resolve suite is nextdoor to our datacenter), and running the Cubix host cable through it to connect to the MacPro.

If you have an adjacent room that would work, you might consider that option.
