Due to the weight of Xeon CPU heatsinks they must be secured to protect your motherboard from breakage.
The DL32 chassis does not have any correspoding mounting holes to support direct chassis attachment of Xeon CPU heatsinks.
Use the optional part - EBP-604-3U Xeon CPU mounting plate in order to fasten Xeon socket LGA 604/771 CPU heatsinks with chassis.
ATX motherboards have standardized mounting holes to fit different types of chassis. As to CPU heatsink mounting holes -
they are not standardized. Determine and spot CPU heatsink mounting holes and then fix the EBP-604-3U plates by selfadhessive
tape, glue or by tiny revets. Make shure that standoffs of the plates fit perfectly to the position of CPU heatsink mounting
holes at the motherboard, otherwise the CPU heatsink screws would not align to the thread. Since, the plates must be
installed prior to installing the motherboard into the D34 chassis, all operations expect pre-scheming and accuracy of the stuff.
The EBP-604-3U plate is supplied as option. It is advisable to order the plate together with chassis.
