Low Profile Heatsink Roundup @ Anandtech!
Posted by: Jim on: 12/19/2001 11:05 AM [ Print | 3 comment(s) ]
For those of you out there who believe in building your own servers (as opposed to buying from a Tier1 vendor), a common question must run through your mind: "What cooling solution will I opt for in my 1U rackmount case?". Anandtech aims to answer that question:
There's one thing we can say for sure: You cannot buy any generic 1U case, good heatsinks, and build an AMD dual CPU system based on this. Using AMDs high-end CPUs, especially in a dual CPU configuration, requires an overall case cooling concept that is well-thought out - good heatsinks alone aren't sufficient.I don't think I'd really be keen on jamming a 760MP(X) machine into a 1U rackmount, either. You all can thank ReMeDy for being "Johnny on the spot" with the link.

Between you, cory and Hooz. I don't know who has the freakiest Avartar.

Cory and I are -huge- Penny Arcade fans. As such we generally grab them from their comic strips. After some photoshop h4x0ring, they make fantastic Avatars. :-P"
