AMD has updated their FX Lineup of CPUs, changing their original stock coolers with AMD new Wraith CPU Cooler which will offer quieter operation and lower temperatures. 

The FX 8370 and A10-7890K were already available with AMD's new reference cooler design, but now AMD has decided to bundle their new wraith cooler with a wider selection of CPUs, providing end users with greater value in the $120-$170 price range.

AMD's new Wraith CPU Stock  offers both cooler and quieter operation that AMD's older stock cooler designs, so much so that many reviewers claim that users will not need to replace it unless they overclock their CPUs. 

This cooler is bigger than their previous design and features a larger fan, which runs at a much lower speed and provides a higher static pressure in order to keep this heatsink much cooler than it's older generation counterpart. 

This heatsink is expected to be bundled with high-end CPUs and APUs from AMD's future Bristol Ridge and Zen ranges of CPUs, giving AMD users a much better stock cooler experience before they more to larger aftermarket coolers for overclocking. 

 

             The new, premium AMD Wraith Cooler features a near-silent noise profile combined with attractive, illuminated style.

AMD has also changed the pricing of their FX-8350 and FX-6350 CPUs in order to better compete with Intel's Skylake lineup, allowing AMD to sell the 8-Core FX 8350 for almost the same price as Intel's Dual core i3-6320 CPU and provide a 6-core CPU at a mere $129.99.    

These prices make AMD's older offering very competitive with Intel when it comes to cost-performance ratio, though Intel undoubtedly offers lower power consumption.  

These new price changes make AMD's FX lineup ideal for those that need a lot of performance for their money, especially since the Wraith cooler can allow them to have both cool and quiet operation without needing to invest in an aftermarket CPU cooler.

The stock FX cooler has actually fairly solid even with the old Phenoms. It was good for a couple MHz overclock at least. When I first got my 8150 way back when I tried to overclock it on the stock cooler for the hell of it and got to 4.1 if I remember right. Slapped my Hyper 212+ on it and got it to 4.3 GHz.Quote

I'd not call it new. It looks afully similar to their old cooler. Still, the fan has always been the weak part on AMD's stock cpu coolers so it makes alot of sense.Quote

It's the same block that shipped with the old Athlon X2 64 6000+, all they've done is add a modified shroud to the fan.Quote

No it's a new OEM design, It's made by the same OEM, AVC, which is why it looks similar. It's bigger, heavier, and has more surface area. It can't have the same surface area if it is the same block with a different fan.Quote
