Hi. I am new user with this server. I upgrade to Xeon E3-1270V2 and it gets very hot. If it is put to work seriously the temperature arrives to 100º with the heatsink of series.

 

I buy a water cooling Antec H600 PRO for 32 € in my country (Spain) and i try put it inside.

 

Now I'm studying how to wire the cables out. When I have it mounted I will put photos and the overall result.

 

(Sorry, i am spanish and not speak english).

Would it not have been better to rotate the block by 90o and have the pipes straight out of the back, that way you arent losing use of the PCIe slot?

It is true. This way the cables go better. When I need to use the slot PCIe I will have to change it. Right now I have no more thermal paste and I can not move the block.

 

As it is placed, if necessary, you could almost almost put the pci-e by pushing the radiator hoses.

Hi. Now is working and i am very happy.

I have the server working with Plex and ILO say 40ºC or 104ºF (CPU in 100%)
With HWmonitor i see all cores in 30ºC or 86-87ºF
Yesterday with same work  i see 100ºC

 

I think it's working very well. I have to keep watching how it works and buy a grille for the back.

 

Thank you.
