When shopping for a low profile cooler you begin to realize a few things. First most low profile coolers are not really that low and either require a tall fan or come with tall fins. Second, the cooling capacity of such a coolers is often proportional to how tall it is. Third, given the first two conditions the low profile coolers tend to be difficult to find. We have reviewed plenty of coolers over the years, some tall and some small and only once have we found a really good low profile heatsink. Sadly, that was back in 2009 so when we got the opportunity to review another we had no choice but to say yes.
