    Sever CPUs usually don't come with a heatsink as compatibility would be a major issue with the variety of chassis out there.

    Just refer here:

    You should be able to figure out which one you need.

    That's not that ideal as SuperMicro 2u chassis are designed to use passive heatsinks and use let the chassis fans handle it.

    This should be what you need.

    You may need the active 2U heatsink, not passive.
    Sometimes passive is not good enough, just had this issue now.

    I haven't run into that issue yet. I've had dual e5620 in a SuperMicro 1u cooled with passive heatsinks so I don't see how passive 2u heatsinks would be a problem.

    SuperMicro doesn't even make any active 2u heatsink for the 5500/5600 series.

    I've always had good luck with dynatron heatsinks, especially in small rackmount cases.

    Get a bunch of pennys and tape them on, make sure to put a really big fan on it.

    We use the active dynatron on the "back" processor and passive on the front in our 1U dual xeon 5620 machines. Works great.
