AMD now offering Wraith Max Cooler Through Retail Channels for $59

AMD has announced full and immediate retail availability of their Wraith Max cooler through retail channels. The 140 W TDP Wraith Max cooler was previously only available through a bundle with AMD’s top of the line Ryzen 7 1700X and 1800X. However, through popular demand, AMD has decided to make that cooler available separately. AMD Wraith is easy to installation through AMD’s Spring-Screw mechanism, offers a good looking LED lighting, relatively silent performance (38 dBa), and respectable performance seems to have been enough to convince AMD users.

The Wraith Max cooler is compatible with not just AM4 but older AM3+, and FM2 motherboards also. The RGB ring’s color can be customized through a myriad of RGB control apps from various manufacturers, such as Asus’ Aura Sync, Gigabyte’s RGB Fusion, MSI’s Mystic Light, Biostar’s 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 itself features a copper base plate and heatpipes, along with pre-applied thermal paste and a 92mm fan from Cooler Master. The down-blowing fan also provides an extra bit of cooling for the socket area and VRMs. With the price-tag of $59 will turn some prospective buyers off, but still, this remains to be the best stock cooler option in the market, and for someone who wants an AMD stock cooling solution, is the best choice currently available in the market.
