AMD Ryzen Wraith Max RGB Cooler Demoed – New Range Of Stock Coolers Detailed


AMD is introducing a full range of new RGB coolers for its Ryzen 7 1800X, 1700X and 1700 CPUs and we've got video of the top model in action. The new coolers feature incredibly quiet 92mm fans,  customizable RGB lighting and improved cooling performance.

The Ryzen 7 series ship with three different cooling options. The 140W Wraith Max RGB cooler, the 95W Wraith Spire RGB cooler or you can choose to buy your Ryzen CPU with no boxed cooler at all and save anywhere from $10 to $20. AMD is also introducing a third entry-level 65W Wraith Stealth cooler with no RGB lighting. This unit will likely ship with some of AMD's Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 CPUs in the second quarter and second half of the year.

With the specs and data out of the way let's take a look at the Wraith max cooler in action.


You can sync up your Wraith RGB cooler with any other RGB component in your system and customize the lighting inside your case in a variety of cool ways.  In the video we see the "breathing" mode with the light fading in and out. We can also see that it's being used in combination with the color cycling effect that changes the color with every breath so to speak.

The first time we caught wind of AMD's new RGB coolers is when Radeon Technologies Group Chief Architect Raja Koduri was pictured admiring his new Ryzen system.

The Wraith Max cooler features four copper heatpipes, the largest thermal mass by far of any stock processor heatsink that we've seen. Paired with a relatively large fan operating at lower RPM results in near silent operation. This is the most impressive stock cooler we have seen to date. You'd be hard pressed to tell that this is a stock unit had it not been for the AMD branding.
