NCIX.com - Buy Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 LP Low Profile HTPC Dual Heatpipe Heatsink LGA775 28CFM W/ 80MM Fan - FREEZER-7-LP In Canada.

Maybe..... not sure how good though.

NCIX.com - Buy Scythe Shuriken 3 Heatpipe Low Profile HTPC CPU Heatsink AM2 LGA775 S478 S754 S939 S940 W/ 100MM Fan - SCSK-1000 In Canada. This looks ok.

NCIX.com - Buy Silverstone Nitrogon NT06-LITE LGA775 S478 S939 AM2 Copper Base Heatpipe Heatsink *No Fan* - NT06-Lite In Canada. Seen this in some smaller cases, need to measure height.

NCIX.com - Buy Thermalright SI-128 SE LGA775/AM2 Heatpipe Cooler Heatsink *Fan Not Included* - SI-128-SE In Canada. Same with this. If the height is fine, it would be the best choice.

SI-128 is a great HSF for htpc cases if it fits.
