I've got about an inch give or take, it is indeed a good fit. The air isn't shrouded into the heat sink or anything but it still keeps the CPU right near room temp. Those fans move a lot of air, even with low noise. I'd like to get a piece of aluminum the same size as the face of that G5 CPU cover/shroud and cut out or etch in "Xeon", or maybe the Intel Inside logo or something, and perhaps stick an LED behind it. That G5 cover is the only thing really out of place.
That's what I didn't want to do. Mine looks a little crude, but it's a very minor part... and it's on the back. I also get to use the existing rear fans and expansion slots. (PCI / AGP (or in my case, PCI-E))
HostThenPost.org had to dump all their images I guess, which sinks because that's what I've been using vs my own server for a good while. I'll have to upload pics again sometime...
apparently we have a child mongerer among us and he is not discrete in his feelings.
sorry visbits.. no idea what htp is...an abbreviation for http? or some child porn thing?
