Noctua presents Xeon Mounting-Kit & NH-U12F Xeon Edition

Noctua today announced the availability of a new mounting kit for Intel Xeon processors as well as a new Xeon-Edition of the much acclaimed NH-U12F and NH-U9F coolers. Noctua's CPU coolers, which have won more than 100 awards and recommendations by leading international websites and magazines, can therefore now be used in Intel Xeon-based servers and workstations.

"Maximum cooling performance at minimum noise levels and excellent reliability can be particularly important in the world of high-end
workstations and special server applications", explains Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO. "We've received lots of requests regarding Xeon compatibility and we're pleased that we're now able to provide Xeon mounting-kits as well as a Xeon-Edition of the NH-U12F and NH-U9F upon request. Finally, Xeon-based systems can benefit from the performance and quality of our coolers too!"

The new Xeon mounting-kit is compatible with socket 771 and socket 604 and makes it possible to use Noctua's coolers on Intel Xeon 5000 and Xeon 7000 series processors. On Xeon 3000 CPUs, the coolers can be installed using the socket 775 mounting-kit as usual.

Availability

The new Xeon mounting-kit and the Xeon-Edition of the NH-U12F and NH-U9F are now available on request.

SO, are they aiming these at enthusiasts who use the xeons like folks who use the opterons?

Otherwise, I dont see a need for a water cooling kit setup in a server

Water is for enthusiasts per definition, no home user would actually require it. Besides, servers tend to use more power and therefor would require better cooling solutions. Water makes more sense in server racks since it's hard to get air away from there. Would safe a lot of noise.
