Will this fit?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm going to be building 3-10 decently high-end servers and need to know if the cooling I want to use will fit on the motherboard.
Cooler
Motherboard

There's an equivalent Asus motherboard that would probably fix the problem, but I've bought quite a few motherboards from them and every one has been DOA. If the cooler won't fit, I'd appreciate some suggestions as to what I should get. I'll be cooling dual 12-core opterons (socket G34), so I need something small that's powerful enough to cool 12 cores. I don't imagine these will end up being overclocked, but if my client decides to lower the budget on me they might be. I haven't looked into opteron overclocking though, and it wouldn't be good to put them into a production environment if there was any chance of instability.

I believe that noctua makes a dual processor cooler for motherboards like that one.

Thanks! I looked around on their website and didn't see any, but then I realized you didn't mean a single cooler for two processors and felt stupid. Their website says this one can rotate 90 degrees for compatibility, so I'm hoping it'll work.
