    Its a miniATX case and the clearance from the board to the bottom of the structure that holds the hard drive/dvd-rom is around 6cm, so im looking for a combo that will fit in that space and wont get too hot. The comp also has a large fan on the back to vent out the back.

    They offer this for cooling it but i want to find something for less cuz the comp use to used just a fan+heatsink

    yea, that's gonna get HOT. I highly recommend some good cooling -- what you posted a link to is not out of the question.

    All the low-profile coolers I know of would not work well in that setup.
