Neither the AIO nor the large tower (air) cooler are going to fly in a sever rack.

No. Servers will be utilizing jet-sounding fans, or air conditioned intake, or rack-level water cooling, or any number of other cooling solutions that can handle high the heat output.

250W is not an absurd figure to shove in a server CPU. If you're buying an 80-core CPU, you're not going to be skimping on the cooling solution.

Especially given the target market for Ampere is cloud providers, you can expect these to be racked in enclosures that provide sufficient cooling for their operational needs.
