AMD to Bundle Wraith Cooler with FX-8350 and FX-6350

AMD is reportedly bundling its Wraith stock CPU cooling solution with even more of its desktop CPUs. Some of the newer batches of two of the most selling socket AM3+ chips, the eight-core FX-8350 and the six-core FX-6350, could sell in special packages that include Wraith, likely at a tiny premium over packages with the older cooling solution that are already in circulation.

With a clock-speed ranging between 4.00 GHz to 4.20 GHz, the FX-8350 is one of the most popular FX-series chips. Along with the FX-6350, its TDP is rated at a scorching 125W. The Wraith cooler, which was extensively reviewed with the FX-8370, was generally appreciated by tech-reviewers for being as quiet as some of the more expensive third-party air coolers, and performing better than the older cooler.

Way to be ungrateful, as they're doing something in the right direction.

The right direction would be releasing more excavator chips or something for am1 or anything new. Not adding a cooler that they duct taped an 80mm fan to and calling it the Holy trinity

They're not calling it anything special, so you're exaggerating. That said, the AM1 platform could do with newer models... :/
