Just wanted to add a reply here, since there isn't much information about aftermarket cooling for the Supermicro X10SDV-TLN4F. I managed to find a GPU Copper waterblock that with some slight modification fits PERFECTLY. I had to buy a pair of steel cutters for $15 at Lowe's and cut the corner off of the mounting bracket so it wouldn't get in the way of the onboard battery socket. I also had to cut the mounting screws shorter by about a half inch, so that they didn't contact the metal surface of the motherboard mounting tray and added non-conductive thermal tape on the backside for good measure. The screws are pointed inward ever so slightly and it was a tight fit for sure, but it all worked out extremely well. I am now sitting comfortably between 29c and 37c and the server doesn't seem to want to kick the fans into high gear as often.

Just wanted to add another picture of the IPMI sensor readings.

My temperatures are way to high in my 1U SuperChassis 505-203B with 3x fans in the back of the chassis. Even a D-1528 is on average 74 degrees celsius (165 Fahrenheit).
  1. Does the CoolJag BUF-B2 fit inside this SuperChassis 505-203B?
  2. If so, where can I buy them? I namely need 12 of them.
Located in Europe (The Netherlands). Importing is not a problem.

Thanks in advance!

It should fit, as its a 1U cooler. In your setup do you have the passive or active heatsink Remko? I had the same chassis and to get temperatures more stable I needed to create a baffle for those fans on a passive heatsink. If you have some stiff plastic you can likely create the same to test temperatures before replacing the heatsink.

Passive. Just exactly as in your link/opening post. Nicely done: impressed!

4. to change the coolers was easy, undo 4 screws, remove back plate and install new cooler and backplate​
5. easily available at antares pro and frozencpu online retailers, then via shipito to Australia.​
Thanks to Patrick for the heads up on removing the original heat sink. Ran it for 20 minutes, removed mounting screws, and twisted, it did not come easily..... The heat sink backplane was harder to remove as it was stuck to the motherboard, it required a screw to be installed and move from mounting hole to mounting hole, and several taps to loosen it.
I was wondering if the change of backplate was mandatory or if it was possible to use the Cooljag cooler with the original SM backplate ?

Hi,I am new here.

I got a Supermicro X10SDV-F (d1540, itx with dual nic) 3 months ago. I replaced the cooler resently with silverstone NT06-PRO:

A huge Cooler (14cm x 14CM), however fit this mainboard amazingly.

I used a buckle bought from Internet (taobao.com in China):
View attachment 4901
Installing:
View attachment 4902

Almost done:
View attachment 4903

The case:
View attachment 4904
Case: Aopen S180 (an old itx model)
Fan: Sanyo Denki 9S1212P4L011.

It's quiet and cool, while maybe a little bit overkill I guess.
Great solution, do you have a direct link to the bracket you purchased? i want to try this on my motherboard.
