Wraith Ripper developed with Cooler Master

While demonstrating the 24-core and 32-core 2nd generation Threadripper CPUs at the Computex 2018 show, AMD was keen to note that these were air cooled, by non other than a brand new Wraith Ripper CPU cooler developed by AMD in cooperation with Cooler Master.

The hefty Wraith Ripper cooler should be enough to keep up with the detailed 250W TDP and should work with all Threadripper SKUs, have a full coverage base, a total of 14 heatpipes, and customizable RGB lighting. The cooler uses a dual tower design with a fan sandwiched between those two heatsink towers.

According to James Prior, Senior Product Manager at AMD, the cooler is actually pretty quiet, making 39dBA at full fan speed.

Unfortunately, it is still unknown if the cooler will be bundled with all 2nd generation Threadripper CPUs but both AMD and Cooler Master did note it will be available from Cooler Master when the new Threadripper CPUs become available later this year.

Legitreviews.com managed to snap a couple of pictures of the cooler at the Computex 2018 show.
