Specifications, Availability and Pricing
Xigmatek has designed the Cuirassier-N002's from extruded aluminum and it looks to be anodized black, with a white Xigmatek logo painted on either side of the spreaders. At the top of each side of the spreaders is a 5-fin, aluminum array to allow a fan to help dissipate the heat. Most pre-applied spreaders come with a foam based tape or a stringy tape that won't allow any sort of reapplication of the spreaders without a lot of work involved, while the Cuirassiers come with L37-5, silicone rubber, to transfer the heat from the IC's to the spreaders. Putting one of my early concerns to rest, the Cuirassier-N002's only weigh in at 75g per completed spreader.
Availability at this time is still non-existent, as Xigmatek has not yet taken this product to retailers in the U.S. market. After a few emails with Xigmatek, I was not given a release date, though. Keep your eyes peeled at Newegg if these are something you would want to purchase as they are expected to hit the market very soon.
With these same correspondences, Xigmatek tells me that the Cuirassier-N002's are going to be released at a projected retail of around $16.99 USD. Taking a look over at Newegg to compare against what else is on the market, the Cuirassiers fall just about in the middle of all the pricing I looked at. There are cheaper alternatives, but they lack the looks and the more expensive ones have external fins that stand really tall and may hinder which cases they will fit in correctly, dependant on your CPU cooler clearance. This price is fair in my opinion, as just about anyone can spare a twenty dollar bill to spruce up the looks of their RAM while adding better cooling potential as well.
