Default help me choose a cooler for htpc build

im building a mini itx htpc for a colleague with the following specs

mobo: GF9300-G-E
cpu: e8400
case: antec isk 300-150
slim optical drive
2gb ram

what would be the best heatsink for the e8400 with the given case and mobo... ive read that the xigmatek d982 fits without mods and the big shuriken fits with some modification (cutting the hdd tray or something).. and the arctic freezer 11 LP peaked my interest... the main use for the htpc to play videos and slight gaming (ROMS mostly)

any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated...

thanks
