    I'm sure a lot of these products are available in the states too.
    I posted the link as a reference, as its one of the better sites for info on noise levels etc ...

    No doubt Zalman's are tops for quiet CPU Heatsinks. My only concern in a mobile application would be that some of the Zalman's sit pretty tall with the Center of Gravity well away from the CPU and Motherboard. This might lead to the heatsink destroying the the board when subjected to the bouncing of a car or truck.

    A fairly conventional alternative:
