Cooler Master has announced its Wraith Ripper, the air cooler that AMD recommends for its latest Threadripper 2 processors. The cooler can dissipate up to 250 W of power and features programmable RGB lighting.

Cooler Master’s Wraith Ripper cooling system for AMD’s Threadripper 2 processors has a dual tower heatsink featuring aluminum fins as well as seven heat pipes. The cooler is outfitted with a 120-mm MasterAir Pro Servo fan that can rotate at speeds up to 2750 RPM and create an airflow of 76.4 CFM. While the cooler is very powerful, it is also relatively compact and therefore does not cause compatibility issues with memory modules, unlike some other “mega coolers” for high-end CPUs.

The manufacturer is especially proud of Wraith Ripper’s mounting system that uses four long screws accessible from the top of the cooler, which greatly simplifies installation procedure of the device.

To make the Wraith Ripper stylish, Cooler Master outfitted it with dual addressable RGB LED strips as well as RGB-lit AMD Ryzen Threadripper logo. Owners can control RGB lighting using the built-in lighting control as well as Cooler Master’s app.

Cooler Master’s Wraith Ripper cooler will be available in September from Amazon and Newegg for an MSRP of $119.99.

    curious how it compares to my noctua TR cooler.

    I don't want my heatsink to be "stylish", I just want it to work.

    You are not necessarily the target market, then.

    There's no necessarily about it, I am absolutely not the target market!

    The question is whether or not AMD (and CM in this case) understand who their target market should be. Threadripper chips that have 32 cores, cost $2k, and run most games at slower framerates than CPUs costing less than a fourth that amount are not really what most gamers need or want, and people who want to buy TR for work are really not impressed by RGB lighting and plastic shrouds that attempt to make PC components look like something other than what they are.

    Also, commenting on the cooler itself - that thing appears to be absolutely massive. It's a cube the size of the motherboard's entire back panel.

    Hey, some of us want our workplace to look *fabulous!*

    Love the look and the ThreadRipper logo. Just won't be as truthful if I choose to use it with a CPU that has a different name in the future. Cool looking nonetheless.

    Black electrician's tape'll fix that
