AMD Offers Stock Watercooling for FX-9370, FX-9590 CPUs
Both processors to get an officially supported upgrade in cooling.
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.
