Seller is claiming the board (via contact) is non functioning so expect no buyer protection if you can't get the board working.
With no integrated heat shield (IHS) any heatsink for these would not make contact with the CPU die and thus would be useless.You could easily just buy the active "+" Supermicro HSF SNK-C0057A4L and slap it on one of these boards, if that's all that's wrong with it.

That being said, I think the proper HSF for these boards is actually SNK-C0092A4L but that part number doesn't really yield readily available options for purchase...
I might be willing to try something, my thought:With no integrated heat shield (IHS) any heatsink for these would not make contact with the CPU die and thus would be useless.
That 's good info. I'm nervous about turning the main power back on until I can get sensor readings. The remote BIOS update license is applied, but I was hoping to backup the BIOS that's on there first. Hopefully the IPMI flash will restore the sensors...FYI, my non-delided X10SDV-16C idles around 45–55°C. Curious to see the difference.
