Accompanying the official launch of AMD’s new Ryzen 7 processors are its new Wraith CPU coolers. As mentioned in previous rumours, the company does indeed have three brand new coolers for its new Ryzen CPUs: the Wraith Stealth, Wraith Spire, and Wraith Max.
The Wraith Stealth is a 65W TDP CPU cooler, which interestingly won’t be available to consumers during launch. According to AMD, the noise output from Wraith Stealth cooler is rated at 28 dBa, which can be deemed as somewhat silent. Design-wise, the Wraith Stealth is… round and comes in an all black colour scheme – that’s about it.
AMD’s next stock AM4 CPU cooler is the 95W TDP Wraith Spire. Noise levels from this cooler is said to be around 32 dBA, which shouldn’t bother most PC gamers at all. Interestingly, the design of this CPU cooler is somewhat similar to the Wraith Stealth, albeit slightly taller.
The most powerful stock CPU cooler offering from AMD is the 95W Wraith Max cooler. Of course, being a high-performance cooler means that the noise levels of the Wraith Max may be noticeable to some (38 dBa). That said, unlike the Spire and Stealth, AMD’s Wraith Max isn’t circular. Instead, the company has stuck with the design that came with the original Wraith CPU cooler.
Speaking of design, AMD’s Wraith Spire and Max stock CPU coolers will be further endowed with RGB lighting – to satisfy your LED needs. It’s worth noting that only the Ryzen 7 1700 processor will ship with a Wraith CPU cooler (Spire). Both the Ryzen 7 1700X and 1800X will not come with a stock CPU cooler out of the box.
AMD has mentioned that the Wraith Stealth will be made available later this year, while the Wraith Max CPU cooler will be exclusive to AMD system partners.
