By - Source: Thermalright | B 12 comments

Thermalright launched a new heatsink designed for ITX and HTPC systems. The AXP-100 comes in a package that has a height of just 58 mm (2.28 inches) including a fan.

According to the manufacturer, the device supports all modern CPU sockets, platforms, system and mainboards. Heat dissipation is provided via six 6 mm heat pipes as well as a 100 mm fan that can be replaced with a 120 mm or 140 mm version. Thermalright said that the heatsink will stay within a noise level of 30 dBA and below and achieve air flow of up to 44.57 CFM with fan speeds of up to 2,500 RPM.

The AXP-100 is available now for $59.95 MSRP.

    Excellent design and all for a small form factor, but I see a problem here.
    Most HTPC's and Mini-ITX builds are made from more budget oriented parts, justifying a $60 CPU cooler for a $400-500 build is something I can not do.
    If the cooler was placed closer to say, $29.99 then they would certainly be considered.

    Plus the cost of a replacement fan in a themed build.

    What's with that puke-brown? If they used something else, it would be nice looking.

    It does look like something from Noctua.

    As long as it clears the memory and PCI-E slot on many ITX boards, this could be a good idea.

    Not all ITX builds are cheap or lower powered. You can find lots of users building small gaming builds as well.

    I already use the Scythe Big Shuriken 2. Same basic design... works very well and very quiet. I forget the price.

    Would have been nice to see a rated wattage for the cooler.....makes it much more relevant then.

    Shame they took the normal "Shuriken" cooler off the market, It did fit more boards due to its 100mm fan then the 120 on the big shuriken. OR MB makers have to stop putting the cpu LGA/Socket so close to the PCI-E slot.

    Geminii S + Mods(little pipe flattening or bracket re-drill) ftw :)  120mm scythe slim fan if you need it shorter.

    Scythe does make some VERY good products.
