AMD Opens Up Wraith Max Cooler To Retail For $59

AMD announced that it is offering the Wraith Max cooler on the retail market for $59 with availability beginning today.

The cooler snaps onto AM4, AM3+, and FM2 motherboards. Previously, the Wraith Max was only available as a bundled cooler with some Ryzen SKUs, but due to popular demand, AMD opened it up to the retail market.

The 140W cooler provides plenty of cooling capacity for Ryzen overclocking adventures. You can customize the color of the RGB ring with Asus Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light, Biostar Vivid LED DJ, and ASRock's RGB LED tools. AMD also offers the AMD Wraith Max RGB lighting control software (powered by Cooler Master) as a free download. The Wraith Max comes with both a USB header cable and an RGB LED header to control the lighting feature. 

The cooler is equipped with a copper base plate and heatpipes, along with pre-applied thermal paste and a 92mm Cooler Master fan. The down-blowing fan also provides an extra bit of cooling for the socket area and VRMs. The cooler runs at 38dBa and features AMD's new spring-screw clamping mechanism.

    $59 with the 1600x currently selling at 229.99 that puts it over the price of the 1700.

    Too expensive.

    I have a 1700 and the normal Wraith Spire seems to be more than sufficient for around 3.8ghz on all 8 cores. Although I would admit this would be nice to have...

    OK, so now we need to have a review of the Wraith Spire cooler against other air-based CPU coolers like the Hyper 212 EVO, so that we can see if it's worth the cost...

    The CM Hyper 212 EVO cost 1/2 the price and performs better.

    Not sure how Cooper is, in relation to here, but I was wondering how cooper compared to copper when it came to HSF coolers.

    $30 seems like a better price point.
