Default Low profile heatink

Can anyone recommend a good low profile heatink? I bought the nmedia 1000 case, and am going to need a heatsink to fit that case. It will be an intel processor. I haven't chosen a cpu for it yet. It depends on the heatsink. If it can handle a quad, then i will buy a q6600. If it can't, well, i'm not sure what i'll buy instead.

Depends on what your going to be cooling.
Something like this unit should do the trick and is fairly cheap depending on where you buy or if you PM:

I was looking at that, but I'm not sure if it'll fit in the nmedia 1000 with a fan on.

cool. Thanks. Now i'm not sure which one to get.. the thermal right is 50$, while the scythe is 25$. Does the performance justify the extra cost?

oh, hahaha. Now that there are heatsinks that are adequate out there, i will buy it. I assumed that you had sold it, as you didn't PM me back :P

EDIT: I looked at the dimensions, and the case itself is about 14 cm high. The thermalright heatsink is 10 cm high without a fan, and a fan adds about 2.5 cm. That leaves me with 1.5 cm .. so, I THINK i should be good.
