AMD Offers Stock Watercooling for FX-9370, FX-9590 CPUs

AMD has quietly launched a new retail SKU for two of its octa-core Piledriver processors, the FX-9370 and FX-9590, which include a liquid cooling kit to provide adequate cooling for the CPU's rather imposing TDP of 220 W.

As you might recall, both processors were initially only available in liquid-cooling equipped OEM PCs or in retail "WOF" SKUs that required the user to equip an aftermarket cooler to operate. 

The new boxed SKUs are distinguished with a "WOF" on the end of the SKU number. Though we don't have any official information on the liquid cooler's technical specifications, it is currently available for pre-order at U.S. retailer Provantage.com with a $50 and $60 premium over the standard FX-9370 and FX-9590 SKUs, respectively.

    At the price they are (over)charging for these things, the cooler should be included.

    The price of the 9370, relative to the 8000 series, is a little pricey, but not terrible relative to a comparable Intel offering. But the 9590 is certainly priced far too high. And dissipating that heat could certainly prove a challenge, to the point I wonder what the specs on their water cooling option is and if it can handle the job.

    Typo:

    "... processors, the FX-8370 .."

    Should be FX-9370
