CPU Cooler for Xeon E5-2650

Recommended Posts

There are TOO MANY cpu coolers but the explanation of each one is not really useful to make a decision.

I have juste purchased:

Motheraboard: Asus Z9PE-D8 WS (LGA 2011)

Processors: 2 Intel Xeon E5-2650 2.0 Ghz

RAM: Corsair Vengeance 64 GB DDR3 Quad Channel

Case: Coller Master Cosmos II

The main tasks that will be developed with this machines are (maybe with different operating systems each task):

- Run many virtual machines at same time (maybe 10 or 15).

- Music production (into a a home music studio).

Both of them can load the processor to the 100% en certain moments, and maintain maybe loads of 70% in a continuos work.

This machine will be in a normal temperature environment (no air condition). The normal temperatures where I live are: 12°C to 32°C on summer, and 2°C to 15°C on winter.

Because of the music production task, it es VERY important to have a VERY low noise from the coolers.

What are the best cpu coolers for me?

i am actually using TPC-812s. Im running them at around 1000rpm and getting about a near silent 41C on 100% load. pretty good i think. Im going to change the fans to some gentle typhoon ap-15s so hopefully i can get it a bit quieter.

Hi Ikem,

Thankyou for your post!

Can you help me with some questions?

1. Have you monitored the temperatur of your RAM modules, or the temperature on that area (behind the CPU coolers)?

2. Which direction does this coller blow the warm air? only one direction? both directions?

3. Is it possible to rotate the cooler so you can control the direction of the flow of the air?

Best regards,

1. the ram is ok, it sits at 35c constantly. in my case before this, they were sitting at 40c.

2. everything flow from left to right. the right cpu runs about 3c more than the left cpu.

3. i had them running horizontally for a few days, while i was testing a bunch of video cards, no problem with space. I am using crucial tactical tracers for ram btw.

yep, it only comes with one fan, and i added a cooler master blademaster to each. atm though, i am only running one fan on each and have not seen any increases in temps.

Hi Ikem,

You told me that you added the Cooler Master Blademaster as the second fan to your CPU cooling system. But, what about the brackets to mount it in the TCP 812?
