ProLiant DL160 G6 CPU upgrade

want to upgrade the CPU's in my HP ProLiant DL160 G6 from the Intel Xeons L5630's to more capable ones, but I'm worried about the TDP, as the heatsinks are sort of small, it being a U1 rack server. I was looking at 6 cored ones with TDP's of 130 watts, and I was somewhat skeptical of 130 watts on the tiny heatsinks. Is there a larger heatsink option available or a rated TDP for the stock heatsinks?

I know this is from 2016, but I was wondering the outcome of your search/query. I have some DL160s that I’ve added x5790s to and the temp spikes to 200F and all the fans seem to goto 90/100%

I think that in this quickspecs has all responses that you need

But don't have more fans to put in this equipment, for use 2 processor with 130w you will need all 6 fans instaled

Because System Fans 6 system fans ship standard; Non-hot plug, N+1 Redundant Standard

NOTE: Fan redundancy is not available when 130W processors are installed
