Question Help with Processor Heatsink/Fan

I can't seem to find a place to purchase the type of heatsink/fan I need. I thought I had it right a couple of times, but they don't fit. The link to the motherboard is there-----> Super Micro Computer, Inc. - Products | Motherboards | Xeon Boards | X5DAL-TG2

Also, I'm running xeon 2.4 and this second hs/f is for the second processor...does my second processor need to be the same as my first? And one more thing; I want to be sure I'm getting the correct type of RAM. As I understand it I need pc2100 or DDR266; is that correct?

Thank you for your help.

you can use Four 184-pin DIMM DDR266/200 is the ram you ram use upto 8GB ram

so i think this ram might work

Newegg.com - pqi 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 266 (PC 2100) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

Also on the link you gave in your original post they have link to tested memory just to the right of the motherboard picture. Server boards can be a little picky as to which RAM they can use.
