Can anyone suggest a high performance CPU cooling, It needs to be low profile (small) so it can fit in my case. :L
Any advice and/or suggestions are very welcome.

Thanks in advance :)

What case and motherboard (make/model for each) are you using?

The Big Shuriken is indeed a pretty good solution, if it will fit. I have 2 of them in use, but could not use with a socket 775 mobo in an Antec Minuet 350 case.

The regular Shuriken might have worked. Some Zalman HSFs will also work, but to make more recommendations, the make/model of mobo and case questions really need to be known.

the big shuriken is not the one you want, it's low profile but extremely wide
the shuriken rev b is roughly the same size as a the stock AMD phenom ii x4 BE cooler, good size..

True, it is wide! Couldn't use in a Minuet with an Asrock Socket 775 mobo, but could with an Asrock AM2 mobo (new system build for my sister-in-law). Models definitely matter.
