    choose correct chasis

    I will get a new server with dual E5520 and 4 SAS 15K rpm (raid10) + 12GB RAM. Will they be hot in 1U chasis? I am only using Supermicro

    Thanks.

    These will be run on passive cooling and many builders I've spoken too don't believe this to be an issue.

    I'd opt for the extra 4cm fan to be safe.

    With proper cooling you should be able to integrate the E5520 Processor(s) within any 1U chassis. Check out apaqdigital.com, they have a few setups similar to this and if you want to go commercial, you can check dell.com.

    With adequate cooling and fans I don't see why that would be a problem.

    It shouldn't be an issue with Supermicro chassis designed for that CPU.
    We use SUP CSE-815TQ-560CB for the E5500-Series and haven't had an issue running systems similar to yours (more RAM).

    Ive found that unless the chassis has or supports the squirrel cage fans it runs hot. CPUs at around 70+C idle (L5420) with all the fans on maximum and just 1 hard drive (off to the left so it doesn't block airflow) in a supermicro barebones (http://supermicro.com/products/syste...S-6015C-MT.cfm). I think the datacenter operates at 22C--my other servers in that rack are MUCH cooler than this one.

    I have some E5530s in a 6016T-T and they are nice and cool only supports 2 drives though =/

    The supermicro barebones that have the squirrel cage fans run MUCH cooler.

    if you plan on adding in an Adaptec RAID card, you might have one very warm setup there, esp since the Adapatec's run warm and don't get much airflow.

    They are the blower fans like what you find in high end graphics cards.
