    Meet Wraith, AMD's whisper-quiet new stock CPU cooler


    Stock CPU coolers don’t get much respect among enthusiasts most of the time, but that’s just silly: The vast majority of people don’t overclock their processors, and if you don’t overclock your processor, a stock cooler works just fine. And soon, it’ll work even better, thanks to the new Wraith cooler AMD just unveiled at CES 2016.

    About time.
    The thing that generates the most noise in both of my desktops is the AMD CPU cooler.

    My last three AMD CPU's, the stock cooler never even came out of the box. Currently have one of these,

    COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2 Continuous Direct Contact 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler Compatible with latest Intel 2011 - Newegg.com

    with one of these on it,

    Noctua NF-F12 PWM Case Fan - Newegg.com

    You want quiet, even at full load I can't hear the fan.

    P.S. Only reason for the Noctua over the stock fan on the EVO, is the EVO fan's bearings started to go.

    I think AMD is doing too little and they're just too late to the club with better cooling units. When I upgraded my processor I got an after market cooler and it's been fantastic.

    While it's nice that they're doing this I don't see any high end system users relying on an OEM cooler.

    That's true Jeff, but it's nice to have a decent back up if the aftermarket one dies

    I agree, changed to one of these Hyper 212 coolers, noise went down, temps went down. PITA to install since my case did not have a bottom access, had to remove MB to get it in. Ended up rotating the cooler 90 degrees so that it blows directly out of the rear exhaust of the case. It was well worth it in the end.

    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.

    If I were using an Intel processor then I would use the stock cooler because of the low watt consumption of the processor. But with a higher watt AMD process I would more than likely use an aftermarket cooler.

    The ones that come with them are rated for the thermal output of the CPU. My stock cooler has the heat pipes etc.

    True.. but it doesn't look like it's getting the job done.. to me at least. I want a nice big cooler.
