The cooler measures in at 95 mm x 95 mm x 69 mm (LxDxH), it weighs in at 508 g. It has a pretty simple design, a big piece of aluminum that is made up into a heatsink with a large number of fins. There is a bulge near the CPU area with pre-applied thermal paste. This could be a viable option for low-power builds. It is available now for around $13.
