Help with my pondering for a 40-Core Intel Xeon E5-2690 v2 Build - Page 3

post #21 of 22
One thing to note about your CPU coolers, while they are good, they are very heavy, and VERY, and I do mean VERY big. You may wish to look them up in some videos/photos to get an appreciation for their size, might be some issues having 2 of them depending on your case and space between CPU sockets on the motherboard.

Measure twice, double-check three times, purchase once =P

lol yeah, you will never in your life fit two of those on that board. Its not like the Xeons overclock, so any small heatsink that fits on there would work. Or a pair of something like H80 if you want to get fancy. I water cooled mine just for the bling factor.
