i'm joking / teasing though bro!
i'm sure a lot of products have their pro's and con's with price vs value vs performance vs noise and a number of different parameters. it's up to the OP or consumer in question to make the best decision himself rather than rely on outside opinions. no one's gonna make a low-profile cooling tier list w/o getting sponsored since that's hella niche and furthermore unnecessary b/c desktop cooling is where all the magic happens, baby!
On a Personal Note
: If you want low-profile aftermarket cpu cooler, go for whatever's quiet, durable and fits the bill in my opinion. If you want a premium product that outperforms the competition by paying $10-$20 on average more, go for Noctua products as a general guideline. Other than that, the cryorig c7's cool (pun intended). You can look at different products for days but at the end of the day, find what is affordable and what works for you. That's why we all drive different cars, live in different houses, play different games, watch different movies, eat different foods, have different friends and wear different clothes. It's all about your own preference. Brand, warranty, general consensus based on reviews, word of mouth (having a second opinion), quantitative metrics, overall design and features (such as being able to run crysis) are all selling-points.
