DIY silent HTPC article

I am having some noise issues with my own HTPC (P4 3.2Ghz), so am thinking about getting that heatsink.
Thermalright makes some great heat sinks. I've been using them since they came out with the SLK-800 a while ago for AMD's. I like the fact that finally someone is providing fanless (or at least low fan RPM) HSF solutions.

Right now I use the older SLK-800 & 900 with a variable fan so I can run it as low an RPM as possible. Of course fanless would be optimal.

Also, you can buy rubber mounts for the case fans if your case does not use them now.
