Need help with Socket F Cooling options!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm building a system for a buddy, and we are using the Tyan n3600b. To start it will be a single processor, but will eventually have a second CPU added. Due to budget issues, we're going air cooled.

I've already built one of these systems for another friend, and it turned out FABULOUS, but the heatsink I used on that system has been discontinued. I've been looking around, and have been unable to find a performance HS for this socket(and many compatible HSs don't list Socket F compatibility, even if they are.) So, anyone got a favorite? or a dealer which has a decent selection?

Secondly, I am planning on doing a Money-Is-No-Issue water cooled setup in a few weeks, and need to start planning ahead. The problem:
2 x 3.0GHZ OCed Opteron F procs
2 x 8800GTX OCed GPUs
more RAM than I know what to do with.

How should I set up the WC system? I've never cooled this many high output components before, and I am guessing it is going to need a large res, and pump. Perhaps I should break it into two seperate lines? ie: one CPU/GPU on one line, and one CPU/GPU on another line? Or will I be able to push through all the components? Finally.... What WC components should I use? This is all sort of beyond my experience so far, so feedback is infinitely appreciated!

You could do it all in one loop, you would just need high flow and a huge radiator.

Never heard of socket F so I will look around...

EDIT: Here's a few. They don't look too appealing though. I am sure you already saw them.
