    120mm fan socket 775 cooler, less than 160mm height? Silent GPU or CPU cooler?

    Are there any coolers that can "equip" a 120mm that is less than 150mm in height?

    So far the only one I know about that's under £25 is the Xigmatek HDT-D1284.

    I definitely don't want to spend more than £25 as it will be used to cool a E5300 which only cost £55 in the first place.

    I know it's a hard find but hopefully someone can help xD

    Are there any other coolers below 150mm height that can cool silently at 100%?

    Currently got a 120mm Enermax Apollish Red Case Fan and 2x Zalman RC100 (5V) Noiseless Resistor Cable and need another item in order to qualify for free delivery.

    Which one would be a bigger priority, silencing my 8600GT (currently the loudest thing in my case when idle) or my CPU (not loud on idle as it spins at 12.5% but very loud when it spins up to 100%)?

    Thermaltake V1, 145mm, £29
    Thermaltake CL-P0369 Maxorb 75mm £30
    Asus Triton 75, 90mm, not fan (so add 25mm and cost of a fan)

    Scythe Katana 2 £23 it's only a quite 100mm fan, but can be replaced with a 120mm. (held in by a clamp)

    There's a roundup of a few low profile 775 coolers here, with a focus on noise, if it's any help: http://www.silentpcreview.com/article964-page1.html

    Actually, I got a better idea, buy a new case later and then I won't have to "waste" money getting a lower profile cooler. Thanks for the helps guys.
