I am in the midst of building a HTPC inside of an old Nintendo 64 case. I decided to go with a mini ITX FM2 board and the A10-5700 65W processor. I have seen that at least 2 other individuals have attempted this and posted their results online. The first did an atom build and the other did a socket 775 build. For this reason the coolers they used would not be an option for me. I figure that the cooler has to be at most 30 mm high, socket FM2 compatible, and be able to cool a 65W processor. Right now my build is at a stand still as I await the release of a decent mini ITX FM2 board (right now the ASRock FM2A75M-ITX is the only option and its over heating issues are not something id like to deal with). So I figure I have some time to get feedback about low profile AMD CPU coolers. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I did see the Akasa cooler and had the same question as well. On the Akasa website it says that the total height is 29 mm but then in the description it goes on to say that the heatsink is 29 mm and below that it says the fan is 10 mm. Also it don't mention what TDP it is rated for. I suppose for now that is the most promising option.
