Thermalright AXP-140 Heatpipe CPU Cooler Review
Thermalright addresses a key issue of picking a cooler for an HTPC by taking their expertise in heatsink design and developing an enthusiast grade CPU cooler that can fit in to an HTPC case. The AXP-140 heatpipe CPU cooler would make a great cooler for just about any system, but because it is only 70.2mm high it is just the thing for keeping an HTPC running cool and quiet.

My parents just got a new computer. The one it replaced was my old overclocked P4.. Cooling it was the XP-120... It kept that beast overclocked from 3.2 to 3.8Ghz for over... 6 years? I think I only ever took the can of duster to it once right before I gave it to them..

yes the XP-120 ruled pretty hard when it was first released; but its design is no good for current CPUs, top-down coolers are just not as efficient as tower coolers, with the same amount of material used.
