Thermalright Intros CPU Cooler For HTPC and Mini-ITX

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.

    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.

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

    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.
