XIGMATEK today introduced the Apache Plus, an entry-level top-flow CPU cooler that looks more expensive than it is. Its design involves a radially-projecting anodized aluminium fin-stack that’s bunched up at the center to make the base; and ventilated by a custom-design 120 mm fan.
This fan features multi-color LEDs (not RGB), takes in 3-pin DC input, spins at around 1,600 RPM, pushing up to 89 CFM of air, with up to 22 dBA noise output. Supporting thermal loads of just up to 95W, the Apache Plus is just a quieter, better-looking replacement for your stock cooler. Measuring 123 mm x 123 mm x 125 mm (LxWxH), it weighs around 275 g. Both LGA115x and AM4 sockets are supported. Expect a sub-$20 price.
