Current heatsink is 26.5mm in height, seems the absolute limit for 1U is 29mm (according to Scythe Kozuti Low Profile CPU Heatsink | silentpcreview.com) in height so sadly that one is too high :( Thanks for mentioning it though.
29 seems low but without grabbing a server and measuring one I can't be 100% sure. 1u is about 1.75inches or 44.45 so after sheet metal and the pcb you'll have less than 40 though now that I start adding it up

Yeah, then you've to add the motherboard height (pcb) plus the CPU socket and CPU itself so I guess all of that adds up. I'd assume everything is probably a bit above 4.45mm.
