LGA1356/1366 Cooler Help

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi,

 

I'm trying to put together a home server at the moment and have everything ready apart from the CPU coolers.

 

I'm doing a dual Xeon build with the Asus Z9NA-D6 motherboard. It has LGA1356 sockets but they're really close together and so I don't know what cooler to get. I was planning to get something like the Arctic Freezer 13 or Freezer 7 PRO Rev.2 but don't think that they'll be able to fit together on the board and I'm trying to avoid a situation where the (hot) exhaust of one CPU is blown directly into the intake of the CPU next to it.

 

If anyone has knows of any coolers that might be suitable for my project as well as any tips or comments, your help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Jamie

1356? I'm pretty sure that's not a socket...

I have a similar board and the temps aren't affected much by the first cpu. just get a pair of these http://noctua.at/en/products/cpu-cooler-workstation-server/nh-u9dx-i4, they will work with the special server back plate the motherboard has

Hi,

 

Could you just clarify that you have the noctua fans where the airflow goes in through the intake of the first CPU then to the outtake of the first CPU directly in the the intake of the second CPU? If that's the case and the temps aren't affected too much then that's probably the route I'll take.

 

Thanks

I'm using some generic heat sinks (you don't wanna know how there mounted) but the airflow goes into 1 out and straight into 2

Having used pieces of string and cable ties in the past I'm sure it's not that bad :P 

 

But thanks, I think that's the approach I'll take.

it's the same socket as the LGA1366 pins so takes the same coolers I have on my Z8NA-D6.

I have these coolers: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dynatron-G555-2U-CPU-Cooler-Fan-for-Intel-Xeon-5500-5600-Socket-B-LGA1366-/321067350234

 

keep in mind these Xeon boards use a different screw mounting to the standard desktop boards - so you need to use Xeon coolers.

You don't need $100 Noctua coolers for a server....
