AMD Wraith Cooler is a Phenomenally Quiet Stock CPU Heatsink
If you are an overclocker, you might not be interested in this but since most of the PC users out there do not overclock their processors, a new (and super impressive) stock CPU heatsink is something important. Say hello to AMD Wraith cooler which is a praiseworthy improvement over the noisy predecessors it had.
AMD presented the cooler at their CES 2016 booth where the demo evidenced that it is phenomenally quiet – barely audible, if you ask me.
This one is a little bigger than the last stock cooler that came out of their camp and in order to make whatever noise it makes bearable to the PC user, it keeps running the bigger fan at a lower pace constantly. This means it won’t stop and restart at will which usually is even more troublesome.
Sadly, that is all what they shared about the new AMD Wraith cooler and conveniently skipped details regarding which processors are going to ship with the new cooler.
However, if it is any indication, Wraith is rated for 125W which means it should be able to tag along those machines which are average and not extremely high end. This is also evident because AMD itself states that their high end FX chips are meant to be used with water cooling systems.
The one shown off at CES 2016 was packed inside a FX-8370 though.
