well, i could but it would look stupid on my 904 considering there's two places i can mount it and i need the front intake to suck air in, i was looking at the noctua one is that good?

No need for any research: http://www.silentpcreview.com/be_quiet_Shadow_Rock_Slim

it's

Overall dimensions without mounting material (L x W x H), (mm) 74 x 137 x 161

So 161 high. - easy to figure out by even looking at any picture.

Also weighs a massive .73 Kg. Not so slim by my estimation. :)

Yes but, they are the best (I thought you wanted the best so I chose the best). They Noctua one feature extremely high quality fans and the phanteks along wiht the noctua's are great. They are also quiet (which is not common with low profile coolers. If you want some on the more affordable side, let me know what price range you want me to select from.

I was thinking in the 40$ price range maybe 50

What CPU do you have, and also do you care about noise or overclocking?

I have an HTPC with a Zalman CNPS8900 Quiet and it works a treat. The only problem I find is that mounting the cooler is a pain, as the screwdriver has to be angled to reach the screw heads. With my motherboard it also obstructs two DIMM slots, but as I don't use them, it's not a big deal.

With a low profile cooler, you won't be able to overclock much. If you want to overclock, I suggest you purchase the Noctua NH-C14 or the Phanteks one I linked above.

If you don't overclock, Tomshardware recommended this one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?gclid=CLuUzK...

I am not a fan or "direct contact heatpipes" and they do not have them. The Zalman does, but I am going to recommend it as tomshardware did.
