The Thermaltake MeOrb is perfect for those with space issues, either due to a small HTPC case, or simply a motherboard whose layout leaves little space around the CPU socket for a king sized heatsink.  At only 106.8mm x 94.6mm x 47mm and a measly 258g this cooler is dwarfed by the reset of Thermaltake’s heatsink lineup, but it should not be underestimated.  In the tests Legion Hardware ran, the MeOrb managed to beat a stock Intel cooler in heat and in noise.

“Those looking to build a small HTPC or even a mini-ITX computer that has a fair bit of guts for taking on more demanding tasks, are going to face the issue of keeping it not only cool but also quiet. The Thermaltake MeOrb has proven to be good at both cooling powerful processors and doing so while making very little noise. More importantly, it does all this while measuring just 47mm tall.”
