    AMD quietly enhances the Wraith Prism RGB LED CPU cooler

    The new model uses six, rather than four, heatpipes but otherwise it looks identical.

    Re: AMD quietly enhances the Wraith Prism RGB LED CPU cooler

    To be fair it's a really decent cooler....

    Only a 65w 2600 here so no need, and that runs quiet already

    I haven't got one myself but before I got my cooler this was the one I was looking at, good performance and looks nice too

    Re: AMD quietly enhances the Wraith Prism RGB LED CPU cooler

    I do like the effort AMD have put into their coolers since releasing Ryzen, I remember back when I had an FX8350 I ran the stock cooler for about 2 days before the noise became unbearable whilst gaming, replaced it with a 212 Evo and now it is in my sons build paired with a 1060, still ticking along wonderfully for it's age.

    Re: AMD quietly enhances the Wraith Prism RGB LED CPU cooler

    A damn lottery if you get the one with more heatpipes?
    Don't misunderstand it looks like a good change but give it a new name and code to distinguish it. You did the same with the Wraith Stealth except the newer one was worse, didn't find out until after I got it (for someone else).

    If you don't want to name it then perhaps others will. This is the "Wraith Prism RGB LED +1 heatpipe", or for short the Prism+1

    Re: AMD quietly enhances the Wraith Prism RGB LED CPU cooler

    Actually looks like a decent improvement for a change, another nail in the coffin for intel maybe?
    think they have had the same fans on the same cpu heatsink since 775 sockets, yeah I know some had a lump of copper in the middle but hey it was a naff upgrade at best.

    AMD is saying that 6x heatpipe Wraith Prisms are counterfeit. Link

    Interesting thought - I wonder if the current mainstream push towards MOAR CORES will mean that older AMD CPUs from the days of "throw more cores at the problem" will be better now than they otherwise would as things are coded to take proper advantage of 6 cores? Guessing not given the architecture of old but still, an intersting thought.

    I'd like to say so but the FX8350 here has been retired and replaced by a Xeon X5670 which is miles faster...

    I think they have aged remarkably well, we have an 8350 an a 6350 still in active use in the house.

    Bit harsh. They do crank out some heat when pushed, but even with the cheap heatsinks I used they don't throttle. Never noticed SATA performance issues, despite the day job revolving around Linux kernel cross compiles with all the small file I/O that implies.

    Just checked two AMD Wraith Prism cooler, and the X3900, I bought just before Christmas, all three have four heatpipes...phew! :-P
