Xeon CPU Cooler?


Recommended Posts

I have an AsRock Rack E3C246D4U + Xeon E-2246G in a roomy mid-tower case that will be used for NAS and VM use. Will a Noctua NH-D15 work? Is there an obvious/better go-to cooler for this setup that I'm missing? Spent some time digging around and answers seem to elude me.


Thanks for suggestions!

I have a Windows Server 2016 Essentials Version 1607 (build14393.3504) on a Supermicro X8SIL motherboard in a Supermicro medium tower case.  This has been my go-to house server for laptop backup, iTunes media server (movies and music), and Domain controller, for several years. I think you will not need a Notctua cooler for similar workload, the standard Xeon cooler should be enough. 


1.87 gigahertz Intel Xeon L3426

Standard Xeon Cooler installed.
