The MasterAir G100M is quite the cooler, with a look we haven't seen from CM in recent memory and is a mere 143x143x74.5mm in size with the fan attached.  This lets it fit into SFF systems, though as Modders-Inc discovered, the round shape means you should install your RAM before the cooler and avoid modules with larger heatsinks.  It is rated for AMD and Intel CPUs of up to 130W TDP but testing showed that is a maximum and it is not really equipped to handle overclocked enthusiast processors, which only makes sense considering what it is actually for.

"Reminiscent of the Jupiter 2 from the 1960's version of the TV series Lost In Space, the Cooler Master G100M is affectionately called the UFO cooler. The G100M is a low profile cooler designed to fit into smaller cases especially mini-ITX."

i have a thermaltake sff (lowprofile) heatsink that looks very reminiscent of this little guy from CoolerMaster.

wont cool ur a 9900k 5ghz auctioned cpu, but works really well for its intended purpose. and my thermaltake isnt rated for anything close to 130 watts either. color me impressed Cooler Master

That cooler design seems rather inefficient, the most active part of the fan has the least amount of fin area in the heatsink. While the center of the heatsink has he bulk of the fins. While it would look asymmetrical, they should have done a design that extends the fins down so the fin density is greater at the edges, with a cutout for spacing for the RAM.
