Xigmatek to Release the Apache III CPU Cooler

Norse mythology buff Xigmatek has a new CPU cooler coming out, the value-minded Apache III which features a radial fin design and offers support for Intel Socket LGA 775 / 1155 / 1156 and AMD FM2/FM1/AM3+/AM3/AM2+/AM2 CPUs.

Xigmatek's cooler measures 110 x 52 mm, it weights 265 grams, and has an aluminum base, aluminum fins, and a 92 mm PWM fan operating at 1,200 to 2,500 RPM (20 dBA sound output). The Apache III is listed for pre-order in Australia and it costs AU$9.48 (~ US$9.78).

Pretty cheap, good for HTPC with low TDP CPU perhaps?

This is insulting to Australians like myself D:

I'm really surprised that Xigmatek didn't really change ANYTHING. I still have the 7000 from Zalman from many years back and then the newer heatpipe version, 8700LED last year to replace the 7000 in the HTPC and I must say that they are very decent coolers, except for restricting RAM and mobo mosfet heatsink sizes. But it is unlikely that uber high end ram and mobos will be used in a HTPC environment.

I would not trust this cooler for even mid level OC's on newer CPU's. The aluminum base and fins is the major downfall of this cooler. This would probably be slightly better than stock coolers.
