    Are there any aftermarket HSF's that are compatible with FCBGA 1667 socket? I'm not happy with the stock cooling that comes on the SM X10SDV-TLN4F board as I often see my CPU reach almost 70C with an ambient temp of 24C when under load.

    Check bios settings on the fan... it is only 45w it shouldn't be getting that hot.
    I would swap the fan before swapping the heatsink.

    I'm pretty sure the fan is at full speed on load but I'll check again this evening when I get home.

    I was hoping maybe some HSF's for other sockets would be compatible with it even though not explicitly stating as such.

    They do not make aftermarket heatsinks for BGA soldered in Intel CPUs. The stock heatsink is sufficient, make sure your fan is aimed at it properly.

    I don't have any fans aimed at it. The chassis only comes with a single exhaust fan and of course there is the fan attached to the heatsink itself.

    Would help to have a fresh air supply for the heatsink fan

    I know but from what I can tell it's not an option. I've got the SuperMicro mini-server chassis that STH reviewed a few months back. There is no place to put an intake fan.

    Sounds like time to take a dremel to it.

    Not a bad idea. I have some Coollaboratory Liquid Pro left over from my last OC gaming build that I could use. Dropped my temps 20-25C when I added that to my desktop chips (coupled with a delid of course).

    Be careful I believe the stock heatsinks on your board is aluminum.

    The entire thing or just the fins? I know a lot of heatsinks have copper bases with aluminum fins.

    Most super micro heat sinks use a copper slug dipped in zink with AL fins.

    My last chip (i5-4590K) dropped 23C under water after the delid :).

    wow!

    last Delip I did was a Pentium D...

    lost interest in OC after that... I went to server boards for reliability and lost O/C functions in bios. I cant stand the goofy UI on most software OCs.

    I don't even game, I just enjoy building OC'd rigs because I do it differently each time. I sell them shortly after building them. Keeps me in the game ;).
