Excellent design and all for a small form factor, but I see a problem here.
Most HTPC's and Mini-ITX builds are made from more budget oriented parts, justifying a $60 CPU cooler for a $400-500 build is something I can not do.
If the cooler was placed closer to say, $29.99 then they would certainly be considered.

Plus the cost of a replacement fan in a themed build.

[citation][nom]LukeCWM[/nom]What's with that puke-brown? If they used something else, it would be nice looking.[/citation]
It does look like something from Noctua.

As long as it clears the memory and PCI-E slot on many ITX boards, this could be a good idea.

Not all ITX builds are cheap or lower powered. You can find lots of users building small gaming builds as well.

Shame they took the normal "Shuriken" cooler off the market, It did fit more boards due to its 100mm fan then the 120 on the big shuriken. OR MB makers have to stop putting the cpu LGA/Socket so close to the PCI-E slot.

Geminii S + Mods(little pipe flattening or bracket re-drill) ftw :) 120mm scythe slim fan if you need it shorter.

Scythe does make some VERY good products.
