Hm actually now that I read it more closely, supposedly that
particular cooler is only for a max TDP of 90W.  The Phenom II X4 is
rated at 95W peak TDP.  Maybe that's in the range of...what, me worry?

AC makes other AMD coolers rated up to 130W TDP, but they're a fair
amount bigger, maybe too big for an HTPC case.  But your case is a
tower model, so no worries there.  get the AC Freezer 64 Pro PWM
