    I run the stock coolers that came in the box with my AMD CPU's. I can hear fans running. Hard to tell if its the CPU, GPU of PSU or just all three. It's not load enough that it bothers or distracts me. I don't overclock so stock is fine with me. If they make them even quitter all the better.
    On my systems you can definitely determine that the CPU fan is the culprit.
    Perform some processor intensive work and the CPU fan starts howling (~5000 RPM).

    The 120mm fans (case & power supply) are very quiet.

    My box (Dell XPS) is under the desk and I can hardly hear the fans. But maybe it's my old ears, LOL.

    It would be nice if AMD decided to sell Wraith as an add on for older AMD CPUs.

    I was just reading about the new AM4 chips AMD is coming out with.

    Those chips and these new fans.. looks like AMD is really improving. I never had a problem with them before (I'm running a FX-6300), but it's always nice when things get even better! :)

    Was about time AMD did something. They had become pretty much irrelevant.

    I don't know, unless your buying the extreme top end CPU, I think you get more bang for your buck with AMD. IMHO anyway. They can't compete with Intel at the high end, but you pay big bucks for the absolutely fastest Intel CPU. Big bucks, more than I can afford. I don't need that speed for what I do anyway. I've been running AMD for years and years and they have never let me down. Stock coolers and all.

    All I noticed on the few AMD systems I have is heat, heat, heat.

    All my PC's are AMD, An Athlon II, Phenom II, A-10 and an A-8 APU's. I haven't noticed any excessive heat. I keep things clean though, no dust bunnies in my systems.

    My A8-6600K runs rather cool and I clean out my system at least every week.

    The AMD chips in the early '00s used to run very hot.
