Are there any reviews on it? It would be perfect for my HTPC, currently using a stock one because that's all they had at Microcenter that would fit the case.

Need reviews, it doesn't seem like it will be better than a stock cooler.

The fins are pretty thick if you look closely.

I like it. It's a good compromise between not wanting a stock cooler and looking for something small for the ITX rig. That said, except for the lower sound footprint, I don't really think it's that better than a stock cooler. Even the sound is a little arguable, since if you manage to lower the stock cooler to 1400-1500 rpm it's actually pretty quiet on its own.
