Not every heatsink heeds to be the size of your head, NZXT's Respire T20 is great for the mid-range

For users who don't need a full kilogram of cooler, the NZXT Respire T20 is a very attractive heatsink. Weighing only 550g, with dimensions of 160 x 123 x 65mm including the fan and an MRSP of only $30 this cooler will fit the case and budget of many users. Of course the smaller size does mean that it can't handle overclocking high end chips but FrostyTech's testing showed that it is capable of handling mid-range chips without a problem. If you have an upcoming build that would benefit from a quiet cooler with better performance than a stock heatsink then this review is worth checking out.
"On the dock today is NZXT's Respire T20 heatsink. The Respire T20 stands 160mm tall, putting it in the class of full tower CPU coolers. At the heart of this 510 gram heatsink are three heatpipes; two 6mm diameter and one 8mm diameter, all exposed at the base for efficient heat conduction."
