for everyone who is into modding and looking for some passive heatsink which could be used for the upcoming APUs, here is one which looks promising...

HP Part Number: 507247-001
Price: USD 6,- second-hand
Height: 65mm

All you need to do is drill 4 holes at the right positions, cut M3 threads and fix the heatsink with some screws of the required length. Just take care not to over-tighten them.

Temps during gaming with 3600X locked down to 35W and no any fans / air movement: ΔT= 55°C

In some good ventilated cases this guy seems capable of cooling the upcoming APUs sufficiently semi-passive.
