I need to build a Silent Rackmount system for AV.

Currently looking at:
Lian Li PC-C32,
ASUS P8Z68-V PRO Mobo.
Seasonic X-560
and need to choose a CPU cooler.

Tempted to get a fanless, but need recommendations given their will be height restrictions.

And then hook up a "Near Silent Fan" on the MId case bracket.

So... I am interested in recommendations for Best CPU cooler for Socket 1155 for a 4U case.

do you happen to know the max height you have to work with?


sadlt it seems like goings to be close to 120-130mm. I beleive most of the bigger towers are closer to 160mm, but others on here would know better than me

Not really.

The Lian li site http://www.lian-li.com/v2/en/product/product06.php?pr_index=263&cl_index=1&sc_index=26&ss_index=68&g=spec says height is 167mm (assuming edge to edge - so less some for mobo and cpu)

I know from here:http://xsreviews.co.uk/2011/02/lian-li-pc-c32/3/ that the Noctua NH-U12 is too tall, and that's 158mm

so maybe 130mm is my max.

I ended up with the Noctua NH9. Fitted well, and oriented right I didn't need to use the case fans in the Lian Li.
