Gelid Slim Silence i-Plus
and this one is simply the best one out there under 37mm. First, the fan is the quietest among them all. Even the best still have a bit of a buzz but the Top Motor fan included on this one is smooth with no buzz. You have to put your ear within a foot of it with the top of the case open to hear anything. Second, the quality of this heatsink is the best. It's full copper and it comes with the thermal paste already applied. It's very heavy and easy to install with no backplate required. Third, and most important, it does a fantastic job keeping processors cool in these tiny little cases. I use it for builds in the Realan E-i5 (75mm high) and E-K3 (72mm tall) which are very small mini-ITX cases. For the E-K3, that the cooler uses the standard mounts is very important because the backplate on other coolers interferes with the VESA mount while the T459 does not interfere at all.
The only con is the way the fan is mounted. It's screwed into the heatsink from underneath meaning if it does fail and need to be changed, the heatsink will need to be removed.
For Intel builds in these mini-ITX cases I will use no other as long as these are available. I've found nothing quieter or better cooling in this size at this price. Perfect!
In terms of cooling performance, it seems to be about par with (maybe slightly weaker than) the Intel stock cooler for an i3-4160, from my experience. Keeps the CPU in the low 40s at idle and between the mid 50s and 60s at "moderate" working loads (which I'm defining in this case as 30-50% total CPU usage) with the fan set to dynamically ramp up according to BIOS defaults. The fan is surprisingly quiet (almost silent most of the time on dynamic fan settings), even when I manually set it to 100% to see how long it could handle Prime 95 as a "worst-case scenario" stress test.
Mind you, this IS an extreme low profile cooler and even at it's best, an i3-4160 at stock will push northwards of 80 degrees at around the five minute mark of Prime 95's standard stress test, so if you're looking for a heatsink for overclocking or gaming where you'll often have the CPU running at 50-75% load or more for long stretches, then this is NOT the cooler for you. However, for a low-profile, light usage (email, web browsing, and netflix) computer or HTPC, this cooler can get the job done.
If I had the option, I would give this cooler "3.Read more ›
But this heatsink will not work with the Silverstone Tek Aluminum Top Cover/Steel Body Thin Mini-ITX Media Center/HTPC Case PT13B
It's too tall for the lid to close so I have to find something else.
Idled at ~55C, there was no room for any decent airflow, with the DVD drive installed.
Went with a Noctua Low-Profile Quiet CPU Cooler for Intel 115x Based Retail Cooling NH-L9I and no problems.

Barely can hear it, while effectively cooling the CPU.
A must for HTPC build.
Bought it for Intel Core i3-4370. I'm lucky it didn't burn a hole in my mobo - idles at 35c-55c and saw it peak at 84c before I immediately dropped the clock from 3.8 to 3.5. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Amazon User
The Fan works good after i replace the Intel mounting system with my own and bolted it directly to the boardPublished 18 months ago by Jay
I've purchased five of these coolers for socket 1156, 1155 and 1150 Intel CPUs. The cooler is very well made and cools the processor much better than the stock Intel cooler.Published on March 10, 2014 by Ozamandiz
I had high hopes due to all of the positive reviews, but I cannot recommend this CPU cooler at this time. My quick test showed this to be more than 10F hotter than stock. Read morePublished on January 1, 2014 by Amazon Customer
