People tend to make HTPC setups these days for their TV’s and something that all HTPC cases have in common is that they are small and have very little space. Because of this you need a low profile cpu cooler that is way smaller than a standard cooler yet will still be able to cool a HTPC. Phanteks sent us their latest PH-TC90LS Low profile cooler that we are going to take a look at today.

We got our sample from PCB that is the swedish distributor for Phantek products. This box was quite small but everything was well protected in foam and plastic.
Inside I found the heatsink, fan, mounting bracket, mounting parts for various sockets and also some thermal paste and the manuals.
