AMD improves its CPU coolers

AMD improves its CPU coolers

PC users have a choice when buying a new processor – they can either purchase a boxed CPU that comes with a cooling fan, or go tray and get their own cooler. While the first option saves you the hassle of looking for a CPU cooler, there’s a major downside – usually box coolers are of low quality and in many cases they cannot effectively cool a processor.

To solve this problem AMD has improved its own fans that come with AMD processors. The US company has demonstrated a new box cooler for its box processors that comes with several major improvements. Called AMD Wraith, the new cooler offers more effective cooling and uses a design that includes a larger aluminum fin-stack heat sink and a bigger fan. Despite this the new AMD cooler is significantly quieter than older AMD stock fans, especially when it comes to fans that were used to cool 95-125W AMD processors. To make things even better AMD has also included a really nice LED-backlit AMD logo on the cooling fan.

The AMD Wraith will be sold as a standalone cooler but users will also be able to get it with new AMD processors. We suspect that the upcoming Bristol Ridge and Zen processors will use exactly this fan.
