Man, Deepcool are going on proper militant !

Great prices ask some seriously hard questions of Noctua et al. It even looks nice.

Are the low profile coolers ever tested for compatibility with mITX motherboards that have graphics cards installed? With many of these smaller boards siting the CPU socket close to the PCIe slot, it means that some of these coolers won't be compatible. I find that this is the most time consuming part of deciding on a heatsink for a mITX board.

Edit: Should also say that I do like the look of this and it's shorter than the cooler I have atm which I am currently looking at replacing.

depends on the company...

Noctua are my go-to for that at as they actually test fit the cooler on as many motherboards as they can find before it gets released, and if you find you cant fit it onto your motherboard, write them an email and ( I think ) they will refund you and update their list
