What kind of cpu do you have? A top-down facing zalman heatsink could also be a solution. Thermaltake also has some compact old school heatpipe coolers. Though I`m not a big fan of their products they should be effective. On ebay you might have more chances finding what you`re looking for. Sorry, I...

You might want to try a Zalman CNPS8000. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835118005 It's reasonably quiet if your case temps allow you to dial the fanspeed down with the included fanmate. It's a less than perfect solution, but it worked better for me than the review here would ...

Low profile HSF for AM2

I'm trying to rescue an HTPC build I have based on an AM2 MB (ASUS M2NPV-VM), and a low profile Ahanix case. This combo offers about 6-6.5 cm clearance from the top of the CPU to the case.

Thanks Mike. The problem is the store is a little one and they had to order in the first NeoHE for me. I go...

A good number of power supplies do run with no load, the latest A4 Neo HE among them. .. Invariably, boosting the load on the power supply fixes the problem. Sorry to dig up this old thread. I bought an Antec NeoHE380 for use with an ASUS M2NPV-VM, one ODD and one HD, one case fan, and a VFD. I had...
