Is that a shuttle SFF?
I had one of those for my Core i7-920. I hated the built in cooler and was considering doing something like this, but was limited from doing what I really wanted by th esmall form factor PSU, so I decided to sell it and get a full tower instead.
I learned my lesson to never go small form factor again, back in 2010. It's just too limiting, and in the grand scheme of things has no benefits, as there is always plenty of space under the desk for a large case.
These two posts reminded me of something amazing and terrible I did way back with my i7 920I think this could fit in here, altough the first iteration wasn't that getto:

But it just overheated like hell,, and the outside surface of the case got up to 60C°
So I took drastic measures:

And then abandoned the whole small gaming PC project. Now it's just a home server / HTPC with a GT1030. And a Xeon E5-2670 at stock. Without any protruding parts.
