Over the years we have seen some interesting cooling contraptions designed by Thrmaltake from the Beetle CL-P0086 to the BigWater SE and Volcano. In this article, we are taking our first look at their server cooling offerings in the form of the ITBU CL-P0303. Thermaltake is renowned in the enthusiast market, but do they deserve the same for their ITBU server cooling solutions? To start with, the CL-P0303 is designed for Xeon Dempsey 2U systems with an LGA-771 socket, while making this design possible are copper fins, dual heatpipes, and a near silent fan. Today we are strapping the Thermaltake ITBU CL-P0303 on top of Intel's fastest Xeon Dempsey to take it for the ride of its life.

Features:

· Application for Intel Xeon Dempsey 2U active solution
· Low noise and silent server cooler
· All copper soldering Technology
· Heat-pipe designation provide better heat conductivity
· Dow Corning 5022 Interface material performs well

For testing purposes we had received two Thermaltake ITBU CL-P0303 coolers. The CPU heatsinks were individually packaged inside of a simple Thermaltake cardboard package. The only part was the heatsink itself, no instructions or other accessories were included. For reference, the thermal compound comes pre-applied to the base of the heatsink. The CL-P0303 uses four spring screws for fastening the heatsink to the CPU socket. The heatsink is only compatible with LGA-771 Xeon processors, and is not compatible with the common desktop LGA-775 design.
