Got the silverstone gd08 case HTPC max height is 140mm high that limits my choices I was going to use a nice Noctua NH-U12A I'm thinking 240 AIO but not sure what will fit in side as that looks bout were the 2 8pins will go on my sage board.
I'd be going with a single core AIO cooler with a good, quiet, 4 pin low pro fan. Fan noise is an absolute killer if it's in the same room.
Alternatively, a remotely placed Plex server with a Chromecast. Some TVs out there serve Plex very well. I look after a place called skicrescendo and everything is a Plex server/Chromecast with either TV support for the Plex app or a simple tablet that only runs Plex/casting and Sonos.
The nice thing about Plex on a tablet is you can do kiosk mode which really simplifies things.
I think a 92mm tower style heatsink might be better suited based on how that case is setup. Since it has dual fans by the CPU, those could act as intake to a tower heatsink. A downdraft style isn't going to leverage the case airflow as much.
