looks to me like the cooler manufacturer's need to rethink their game

I even think H80 is a bit of a waste on a system with a price tag like that.

Looking at putting together a few SR-3 builds myself for my render farm and while I'm happy using the H100 for my normal 2600k nodes, I'll certainly be doing custom loops to keep those 150W Xeons happy.
We'll see if a full loop is necessary. Not all of the E5 Xeons, and not even all of the 8 core models, will have 150W TDPs. I think the only one that has a 150W TDP is the one with the W designation. I haven't see anybody that runs 5500 or 5600 W series Xeons on their SR-2, fwiw.

That leaves us with the 130w and less models, which are more than capable of being cooled with air. I don't see how an H80 or whatever is skimping if that's the case. A real WC setup would be nice, but I will have a hard time justifying it if the H80 will do the job acceptably.

Lol i see so many builds with nice expensive components then settles for hyper 212 +.
Lol I'm still rockin' the stock cooler.

Yeah all I'm saying is that a 2600k for example without IGP draws about 65W or something I believe...once you OC that to 5 GHz it requires something like an H100 to keep it cool enough to run.

With a 130W CPU without an IGP, I imagine it'll be pumping a TON of heat!

The X5680 is a 95W chip for example and basically requires a custom loop to properly run with an SR-2.

Anyway just saying really is all. I've never really seen custom loops as needed before, but definitely going to start building them for the SR-3.

all ddr3 heatsinks are useless until you start running more than 1.8v, then they start getting warm.

Noctua already have a prototype for this socket.

Why don't motherboard manufacturers do what they used to do and put the RAM slots on the board at an angle.

Or, why not do a laptop-style stack?

I don't feel like this is really that big of a deal to get around.
