Many of the low power Intel Atom based motherboard use passive integrated heat-sinks for cooling. For more powerful processing applications, larger heat-sinks and active fansinks are required. We offer these heatsinks/fans in our configuration system, available at checkout.
Here are some examples.
Dynatron K199 1U active heatsink/blower fan for Core i3/i5/i7 and Xeon CPUs LGA 1155/1156
Thin Mini-ITX cooling standard via the Intel HTS1155LP Ultra Slim Active Thermal Solution shown below:
The HTS1155LP works well with the Intel DH61AG thin Mini ITX motherboard and Core i3/i5/i7/Xeon CPU’s.
We offer both of these at configuration/checkout. Other low profile heatsinks will also work with Build-a-Blade systems. For example:
CPU: Conroe-L (TDP 35W), E series Celeron (TDP 65W max), Dual-Core (TDP 65W max), Core 2 Duo (TDP 65W max), Core i3/i5 (TDP 82W max) with good case ventilation
