Hi team,

Currently looking for a low profile CPU Cooler for my server. 

I purchased a Corsair H5-SF but did not realize it ONLY works on Micro ATX.

 

I figured I'd ask here to see if anyone has been sitting on one. 
Alternatively if anyone has a recommendation of something at a reasonable price that's decent I'd appreciate that too. 

Open to pretty much anything :)

Thanks!

Depends so intel stock coolers are too high? they normally just have a lower fan profile as well.

 

Could an all-in-one water cooler work?

What's the TDP of the CPU? If its low enough power could you take the fan off a stock Intel cooler and rely on case fans?

Intel stock coolers would fit fine.

Server is mainly used for Plex and transcoding so would like to chuck in something better than stock.

Currently rocking a 4790k with an old CM V8 which should do the job fine but sadly it does not. The issue with this is it's a monster and prevents me from closing up the case.

An AIO would fit fine but the case is an unconventional server case that and I'm unsure how I'd retrofit it.

I'll post some photos of the case this evening.

In that case I'd go with a Noctua NH-L12S :-)

Thank you!

I re-seated the cooler tonight. I'll see if I have any luck with this and if not go from there. I'd love to retrofit an AIO somehow to this....

This cooler has been working perfectly on an i7 920 that I have just retired (What an amazing chip... 10 years still going!)

A standard PCI slot is 120mm .. so your basically looking at a cooler no more than that.

 

The stock intel cooler would fit and they are only ~$10

 

I had one of these on my HTPC and it was pretty good for under $60 .. sold it though;

Or maybe spend $60 on a new case 😀

Someone has been very generous and offered me a Noctua U9S NH for free :) which I'll test.

 

That Cooler was my next option! 

 

I actually LOVE that case for some reason haha.

Might have to move this into a different section.

Have now tried... Reseating CPU. Tried stock cooler. New thermal paste.

Bios is showing the CPU running at 51°. I'm wondering if maybe a temp sensor or something is damaged?

Could the clamp pressure of the previous AIO that was running on the board have potentially damaged anything?

When I boot into Linux it showed the CPU running at 41°-45°

If that 4790k is overclocked then 50deg on a stock cooler would be expected. Reset bios to defaults or check for bios update. A lot of the original bios pushed way touch voltage into Haswell.

If I recall the 4790K was sometimes a fairly hot running CPU and also voltages were sometimes an issue as GoranZ mentioned. See if this is helpful https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapc/comments/6jsy0p/found_the_solution_to_my_i74790k_heat_issues_90c/

I have turned off hyperthreading and it seems to be staying pretty cool... I might try underclock the CPU and leave on hyperthreading to see if that gives me the same results
