nMediaPC just replied back and the Zalman 120mm wont fit.  But either of
their coolers will.  They make the icetank (read some bad reviews about it,
Not that good at low fan speeds) and their Ice cone (some decent reviews).
The ice cone looks like the Zalman but uses a 100mm fan.  Any one have
experience with this fan?  I am open for suggestions on a different case but
i want a mATX case to keep it small.  Many of the HTPC cases i have looked
at are ATX size.  I would also like to keep the cost of the case around
