My take on the SilverStone NT07-775 is this. If you have a clearance issue in your HTPC or SFF case, as I did in the Cupid 3, this cooler is a good solution to the problem. Most of the market as I see it, uses tiny fans or chooses to go the passive route for low profile coolers. I think SilverStone did a fairly decent job in adding a solution that doesn't need extra case fan noise to keep the processor cool.
After all the testing was done, I mentioned previously that I did in fact install everything into the Cupid. Once the NT07-775 was installed, I did notice a couple of degrees drop in CPU temps with the case lid on over the retail cooler that was combating the PSU for air intake. On the subject of the PSU, the exhaust to my hand felt a bit cooler as well. Dropping the fan one centimeter closer to the processor seems to allow my HTPC to function a little cooler now.
Considering the SilverStone NT07-775 is $22.99 at Newegg with free shipping, again, how can you go wrong here? It is slightly ironic that I am a cooler reviewer and was actually looking for a replacement cooler for my home theater system. SilverStone offered me a great solution to my clearance issues without compromising too much performance in doing so.If things are a bit tight or you have peripherals binding a retail cooler, I suggest you take a look at the SilverStone NT07-775 to solve your space issues.
