I am building a new web server and am looking for some suggestions for CPU cooling. The chassis is a Supermicro 2U. The opeterons are a pair of 252 and the motherboard is a Tyan S2881 ... I am looking for reliability and cooling!
There are a lot of chassis fans in this box... can I get by with just heatsinks on the CPUs? Any suggested heatsinks?
Or is ther such a thing as low profile heatsink/fan combo coolers that will fit in a 2U case? Any suggestions?
