I would appreciate a heatsink recommendation for a low power xeon. The setup is a Supermicro X9SCM-F motherboard with an E3-1260L xeon. The cooling requirement is not huge, but my case is an Antec Solo, so I believe a heatsink without too many clearance issues would be good. My last setup in the same case was with a Thermalright XP-120 heatsink on an AMD board with a low noise 12cm fan.

Currently looking at the following:

- Scythe Samurai ZZ
- Intel BXXTS100H CPU Cooler

I went for a Coolermaster Hyper 212 instead, and also ordered a couple of Scythe Slip Stream PWM (1300 rpm) fans. I believe the cooler is good enough, and if I do not like the fan on it, I can just exchange it with a fan I know the properties of :)
