    I just have a 60mm noctua fan attached to it with zip ties. Here are the exact specs. I have a post somewhere early on in this thread where I talk about how big of a drop in temps I saw from the stock heatsink. It was something like 15C if I remember correctly.

    I should have 60+mm for 2U heatsink. So BUF-ECooljag should fit.
    But you also replaced the back-side for the BUF-ECooljag?

    To use the screws that come with the BUF-E, yes you'd have to replace the backplate. But you can also just use the screws that come with the stock cooler on the BUF-E and then you don't have to replace the backplate. That's what I did on my 2nd and 3rd installs and it works great.

    I took off the stock cooler, kept the backplate on as it's pretty glued on there anyway, and then used the screws that came with the stock cooler to screw the BUF-E into the stock backplate. Works great.

    Yea that's a tough one. I don't envy those trying to source some of these parts outside the U.S.

    Well...finally I got BUF-E and replaced my old heatsink. I am really impressed with the results. with my 60mm noctua FAN no higher than 40 Grad :) in normal operating mode (low CPU usage) and now it's really silent!

    That's the same type of results I saw. Glad you're seeing the same :).

    Next test will be to set FAN from original heatsink, that runs on 5100RPM on FULL mode and check the results :)

    In my current configuration FAN is located on the right side and brings the air from a side and not from the top, like it was with the original heatsink. I don't know exactly what is more effective but any way I have no space to install 20mm Noctua FAN on on TOP of 2U heatsink -> so , only the FAN from the original heatsink ;)

    As soon as I get the next item (tube) that will allow me to montage my FAN correctly to the case I will show my installation... probably it will be quite helpfull.

    Simply because there's no way to cool correctly and silently a CPU with only 4 cm height...

    But it's 35W... it doesn't get hot enough to need that kind of cooling. The additional power needed by the water pump could add up to another 5-10W of power consumption.

    Just stick a thicker/taller copper heatsink on the thing and call it a day.

    *shrug* I just use the heatsink/fan that came with my 1541 and it's fine. Temps stay under 60C.

    That said, I just bought that 60x60x60 hunk of CoolJag copper everyone has been posting in here. I'm going to bend some metal and make a shroud so that it's like the dynatron 2U heatsinks and drop a 40x40x20 Noctua PWM fan on it.

    Should be interesting.

    Why didnt you simply check out radial fans of eg 30 mm height? There are many different 12 Fans on eBay. You could try to tube from side ways.

    Hi, I have got the Cooljag BUF-E heatsink for my X10SDV but have absolute no idea about how to tightly mount a fan on it. Could you please give me a clue? Thanks.

    I just added a single zip tie to the bottom of the fan and around the heatsink. See below.

    Spartacus, what size Noctau fan is that? And when you removed the stock heatsink did you have to heat it? If so, how?
