Water Cooling PowerEdge Server (R910)

Postby ipjd2000 » Sun Sep 06, 2015 11:38 pm

I wanted to know if anyone here has water cooled a Dell PowerEdge server (such as the R910, 4 Xeon processors X7560 - socket LGA 1567)?
Does Koolance have all the parts necessary for such task?
Any recommendations as to the parts I should use for such task?

I don't keep up with intel socket sizing and the CPU-380I doesn't specifically list the 1567 socket. However if the mount spacing matches any of the listed sockets...

Intel socket LGA 2011 / 2011-v3 (Square ILM only)
Intel socket LGA 1150
Intel socket LGA 1151
Intel socket LGA 1155 / 1156
Intel socket LGA 1366 (may require BLT-CPASZD12 for fixed motherboard back plates)
Intel socket LGA 775

If 1567 doesn't match the above depending on where it's different I would imagine it would be pretty easy to enlarge the mounting holes on the CPU block to get the needed alignment on the socket.

Beyond that your only other trick is clearance issues and getting routing for the tubing as most rack units typically make use of most of the space. But rack units is one of the primary reasons the ERM-XXXX units were created. Mount the CPU blocks in the rack server, route the tubing out and into the ERM unit and your ready to go.
