    No real need to overclock or anything, and the stock Intel cooler works great--problem is that its too tall for the 1u rackmount server case I'm putting this together in. Suggestions for a slimline cooler? There's no room on the back of the board for a bracket due to an IC in the way, but I can always circumvent that with a trip to home depot if necessary, although I'd like a plug a play solution best. The socket also has some semi-tall components that might possibly get in the way if the cooler overhangs much.

    The one that I think might be the best I've found so far is the Engine 27 by Thermaltake, but before I go out and get it, I wanted to see if I've overlooked anything, hence I'm here to ask the experts. :D

    Feel free to ask questions, and thank you in advance. :)

    I guess I never updated this thread. Went with a Dynatron and it seem to do the job.
