1U Opteron 250 is ridiculously hot 60C??!
Posted on 2004-09-08
I have a 1U opteron 250 server running with a thermaltake heatsink that says it's rated for the Opterons... my CPU temps are 60C+ and during an INSTALL of exchange it overheated and crashed... i've tried reapplying the heatsink and compound several times, tried different compound and it still is ridiculous. however, if i throw the normal heatsink on there (the large heatsink that came w/ the opteron), it's 45C... now logic says the 1U that thermaltake sold me doesn't meet requirements, but my quetsion is, what heatsinks out there do?? i dont' care if it's a 100$ heatsink, i want my systems cool.
