Thanks for the info! Any idea what the clearance height is with the fan attached? Cases have a max cooler height and so the term 'low-profile' can mean different things in different SFF scenarios.

Agreed - if you are trying to put this cooler into a mini-ITX case like Silverstone's Raven (RVZ02), you are definitely concerned about the height. This guy looks too tall for that type of case, but it might fit into one of the cube or shoebox-style of mini-ITX cases.

It feels more like it was simply designed not to overhang memory, and to reduce some material costs. Those plastic pushpins are very simple to install, but they're a pain if they break when you're moving/replacing them. Plus you're not getting as much downward pressure on the CPU as you would with a metal backplate.

I went back to their booth today and did a quick measurement. It's approximately 120mm tall from the bottom of the base plate to the top of the heat pipes. Hope that helps.
