Considering where most people put their HTPC, I doubt we'll see anyone take that chance. Most people put them inside a stand orcase with no regard for airflow. Sure guys like us know better, but 90% of the regular user world don't know or care.

edit you would think the name "heatsink" would give away what it does but most don't get it at all.

There are plenty of passive cooled computers in the world. Though it can only be like less than 400 watts at the max. So you can build a gaming machine out of it.
