HP Z220 SFF or CMT for work

HP Recommended
Z220 SFF/CMT

Hi, which one is more suitted for prolonged CPU intensive workload - Z220 SFF or Z220 CMT given they both come with the same (77W-87W) processor? I've never owned SFF but I noticed HP's Z220 SFFs come with very unusual cooling system with passive heatsink, any experience how good they handle heavier tasks with 77W processors?

 

Will I be able to upgrade later CPU coolers on both units with thirdparty aftermaket one (like Noctua, CoolerMaster, etc.), be it air or small liquid closed loop system?

Given you normally work with prolonged CPU intensive workload. I think CMT case is more suitable than SFF unless you have no available space for your computer.

What about CPU cooler upgrade possibility both on Z220 SFF and CMT, is it possible to upgrade the CPU heatsink/coolers to aftermarket third party air coolers?
