Heatsink for 2nd Processor in Proliant ML350p Gen8

I'm adding a second processor to a HP Proliant ML350p Gen8 tower server.  Which heatsink is needed for processor #2, and is it the same model number as for processor #1?

The plastic air baffle guides the airflow down a channel across processor #2, then processor #1.

The height of the air channel around processor 1 brings the heatsink right up to the plastic, such that all the air flows through the heatsink.

The air channel around processor 2 is higher than for processor 1, about twice as tall.  So it seems that if I use the same model # heatsink for processor 2 as for processor 1, the great majority of the air will just flow over top of the heatsink.  This seems like a problem.

So, do I use the same model number heatsink for processor 2 as for 1?  Or is there some taller heatsink to use?

 

Thank you.
