I've come bearing an update:

I've decided that I may not want to keep with the stock heatsink that I have on my E4600 downstairs (which is the chip I'm putting in my HTPC). The case is going to be small, so I want something with a little more cooling power, but that fits in such a small case. I've decided on the 'Zalman CNPS8700.' It's made for low-profile cases like the Minuet, and looks like it'll do a good job of cooling my chip amidst the warm atmosphere that'll be inside my HTPC...

thoughts/suggestions on other low-profile HSF?
