Default Quite CPU Cooler for Opteron Socket F (Socket 1207) w/ Tyan n6650W mobo

It's been a while since I built built my PC and it's about time for an
upgrade.

I plan on building a dual processor Opteron system based on the Tyan n6650W
motherboard. I am planning on installing only one CPU at this time (an
Opteron 2210). I'll wait for the quad-core Opterons later this year and
then put two of them in this system. I am not planning on overclocking.

The biggest problem I've run into - finding a quite & good CPU cooler for
this system. There are coolers available, but they're 55 dB or more. Yuck!

The Cooler Master Mars is supposed to work, but the reviews for it are
marginal at best & it does not come with a backplate. I'm worried about
damaging a $400+ mobo (not to mention the CPU) with a poor cooler.

Any suggestions?

I assume that you already know that the Socket F does not take one
fan/heat-sink type, but there are two different ones depending on the
motherboard? I just built a server on a tyan s3992 with an amd opteron
2218 - as you are doing, I used only 1 processor, and will put in another
one after the prices drop. I used the Zalman cnps 9500, which is labelled
for the AM2, but works with the tyan sized, socket F (I assume that the
n6650 takes the same hsf size, but you might wish to double check - there
isn't much written about this). The zalman seems quiet, but since it's in a
server with 4 15K SAS drives, I really didn't care about the cpu fan noise.
The zalman is large, however. Luckily, I didn't get two as it will only fit
on the 1st processor slot with my lian li case (powersupply on the bottom).
In the second processor slot it will interfere with the full-size pci-e raid
card that I have. Even in that 1st processor slot, the zalman would have
interfered with the tyan add-in sas/scsi controller card if I had one.

I'm not sure about the backplate information. The tyan board had warnings
about not installing the processor until after installing the backplate, but
the backplates on my board were already installed, and the threaded screw
inserts that hold the hsf are on the backplate, so I can't see how it's even
possible to install without the backplate. ...perhaps they had problems with
this and decided to start installing these backplates at the factory? So,
you might check about that backplate thing. ...as far as I know, that comes
with the MB and not the hsf.
