I'm in love @_@. It's small, quiet and elegant in it's simplicity. Not to mention for it's size, it cools admirably. Count me in for my next HTPC.

Wow never thought I would see a heatsink that small again and it seemed to do ok for its size

Yeah, there is still a market for super small super quiet HSF's. People like me and everyone on SilentPCReview likes to build PC's that are quiet and take the performance hit instead of going balls out for every last FPS we can get. I also take things further and under-volt and often under-clock myself.


Some people would wonder why a HSF needs to be this small but seeing as you cannot cram a heatpipe tower into most mini itx cases ( like probably 99% of them ) a heatsink like this that performs better than the stock HSF with less noise is a win-win as far as people like me are concerned, especially when it's sub $50 as us HTPC users don't often get good heatsinks like this without a huge price premium.


^^^ Prob shoulda used a period or something there shouldn't I have? :)
