I just got a HP Z600 workstation off of ebay. It's a fantastic machine but definitely not silent. Furthermore the CPU heatsink performance leaves much to be desired (~40C at idle for Xeon E5520).
The thing is the area surrounding the CPU cooler is very limited due to interlocking memory cooler cover. The CPU cooler itself is about 3.5" wide, 2.5" long, and about 3.5" high. It's fairly small with 2 heat pipes and what I believe is 80mm fan.

I was wondering if anyone here have experience replacing Z-series heatsink with aftermarket coolers, and replacing system fans as well.

I would much appreciate any suggestions.
