We currently run 16 2U 1Ghz AMD T'bird nodes in a single rack, Most
stock coolers will actually fit but I would recommend going for a 100% copper
cooler, they give better performance and generally have a lower profile. More
important is the airflow through the actual case. We use ACME ACM222 2U cases
which have 6 80mm fans.. 4 pushing air in and 2 (by the CPU) pulling air out.
Hope this helps..
