Default Socket 604 Cooling Solution

I have a SuperMicro X5DPA dual CPU Socket 604 motherboard which works well except for the really loud CPU cooling fans. They are Thermaltake TT and run at about 6000 RPM so really annoying. Surely there must be adapters to use more modern coolers that are less noisy. I'm using the fastest CPUs available on this board 3.06 GHz.

I'm thinking of the 775 tower type coolers. This board has 3-pin fans so the board has no influence on the fan speed.

Any ideas? Thanks for this.

I use LGA771 coolers for the all the time. The issue you can run into is the bottom plates for LGA771 sockets interfering with SMT components on the underside of the socket604. The fix is to not use the bottom plates, and instead use a nut & flat washer to attach the sink. Far better options out there for 604 CPU cooling with LGA771 sinks.

You can use a fan voltage control board. Just watch the temps
