Re: [OT] CPU Cooler for 1U (AMD Athlon XP 3000+)

Hello Norbert Kiszka,

Was my last message gonne to  you  directly?   Then  sorry,  it  was  an
accident because normaly I respond always to list!

Not possibel, because I have only a 12U rack and with the  Switch  (1U),
UPS (3U), Intranet Server (4U) and three Workstations (2x 1U, 1x 2U)  it
is now full...

I will try it, but unfortunately I have not found a  schematik  for  the
mounting holes, so I can not check this...

I do not think it is neccesary, because I have the 4 mountig holes for a
passive cooler on the Mainboard and much space arround.  Grmpf!  I  have
a bunch of Xeon Cooler here, which would fit the height, but  they  have
two centric screws which logicaly do not fit the Asus Mainboard.

Yeah, soldering the Mainboard seems to be  cheaper  then  buying  a  new
Dual-Head Graphik Card (>400 Euro) and if I realy do not find a suitable
Heatsink, I use one from the Electronic Shop...  and make my own one but
the Problem is, they are all Alu-Heatsinks and not Cooper.

My BIG Arctic Cooling Cooper-Lite has 0.48°C/W and it has 80x78mm  which
is much smaller then the space available for the 4  mounting  holes  and
the 1U chassis has enough placements for 40x40mm fans which  blow  fresh
air over the passive cooler...

Now I go to my Office in Kehl and will try something with this pig.

Thanks, Greetings and nice Day/Evening
