Hey guys.

Im looking for a great HTPC CPU cooler.
It has to be low profile.

I currently have a Scythe Kozuti but I dont feel it is adequate enough.
My 35w cpu is still getting really warm, and it has to ramp up the fan speed.

I have seen 2 new low profile coolers come onto the market.
Phanteks PH-TC90LS
and Noctua NH-L9i

Im just wondering of the 3, which would be the best cooler?
There isnt much info on the Noctua as its just come out.

Also I cannot find a benchmark between the 3.

So I'm seeking the experts advice.

I wouldnt say crap, but it doesnt seem like it cools my 35w cpu all that well.
Have reports of 50c when I wasnt even playing a video.
