Finding a CPU Cooler that can cool exceptionally well and fit inside a tiny Mini-ITX or HTPC case can be very tough to do for many system builders. Stock CPU heatsinks and coolers are hot and noisy, while high quality coolers usually either don’t fit the case or interferes with your video card, memory modules or chipset cooler. Trying to find the perfect balance of size, thermal performance and noise has been tough for small form factor (SFF) users and that was the driving force behind the Thermalright AXP-100.
This CPU cooler is only 58mm (2.28 inches) in height and that includes the thickness of the included TY-100 high performance PWM fan (100mm). If you wanted to run something larger than a 100mm fan you can as the adjustable Enhanced Fan Mount is capable of mounting 140mm & 120mm fans. The Thermalright AXP-100 is available now and has an MSRP of $59.95.
