Premium AMD Processor Cooling Solutions

For people who care about the way their PCs run, sound, and look.
We've listened to our customer feedback and designed our newest coolers to deliver near-silent operation, bolstered with capable thermal hardware - with no increase in pricing when these coolers are packaged with existing processors - for a tremendous value.

 

AMD X470 Chipset - Enthusiast class features and control, with AMD StoreMI storage acceleration technology

The newest most advanced Socket AM4 platform for overclockers and tweakers who need the very best, the AMD X470 chipset offers comprehensive, low-level control, includes AMD StoreMI storage acceleration technology, and supports dual graphics card configurations thanks to two PCIe® 3.0 graphics card slots.

 

 

 

AMD StoreMI Technology is included with every Socket AM4 motherboard that features an AMD 400-series chipset

SSDs are fast, but expensive, and offer minimal capacity. Mechanical hard drives boast large capacity for a low price, but are much slower than an SSD. AMD StoreMI technology "combines" these two types of storage into a single drive and automatically moves the data you access the most to the SSD, so you get the best of both worlds: SSD responsiveness, and mechanical hard disk capacity with its low price.

AMD StoreMI is a powerful tool for PC enthusiasts that want to improve load times, boot times, file management, and system responsiveness.

- Maybe you installed Windows® to a hard drive, but don't want to reinstall anything to get SSD-like performance: StoreMI can help.
- Maybe you have a large library of files across several drives, and want it all under one drive letter: AMD StoreMI can help.
- Or maybe you wish the hard drive with your games could get you into the match at SSD speeds: StoreMI can help.
- As you add more and faster drives to your PC, AMD StoreMI technology automatically pairs your most-used files with the fastest storage for peak performance. You can also use up to 2GB of RAM as a last-level cache for ultra-fast data.

 

Spend Less Time Waiting

High-capacity hard drives are great for storing large libraries, but they're much slower than an SSD. AMD StoreMI technology can get those files running at up to SSD-like speeds. Simply add an SSD to your system, and let StoreMI do the rest.

 

Accelerate Your Operating System

Feeling the pain of slow startup times or an unresponsive PC? AMD StoreMI technology can help. Just add an SSD, and StoreMI can automatically help your PC feel smooth and snappy.

 

Cost-Effective, Non-Proprietary Hardware

You don't need to invest in expensive and proprietary hardware to get quicker storage performance. AMD StoreMI uses widespread and affordable technologies, like SSDs and NVMe, to accelerate the storage you already have.

 

Plug & Play for Easy Setup Today

You don't need to reinstall Windows® to enjoy the benefits of AMD StoreMI technology. Just add faster storage devices to your system, and StoreMI will automatically get your most-used data to the fastest drive for peak performance.

 

Easily Manage Large Libraries

PC enthusiasts often have many large hard drives for their library of files, but managing the library across multiple drives can be a nuisance. AMD StoreMI technology can make it a whole lot easier by managing those drives as a single large pool.

 

 

AMD SenseMI Technology. Technology that thinks.

AMD's SenseMI technology is a set of learning and adapting features that help the AMD Ryzen™ processor customize its performance to you and your applications, thanks to true machine intelligence (MI). Finally: performance that thinks.

 

Extended Frequency Range 2 (XFR 2)

Many enthusiasts choose premium cooling in their PCs, and 2nd Generation AMD Ryzen™ desktop processors can automatically reward that choice with XFR 2. For example: All 2nd Generation AMD Ryzen™ processors can take advantage of the lower temperatures offered by premium cooling to enable higher multicore performance.

 

Extended Frequency Range (XFR)

Automatic extra performance boost for enthusiasts' systems with premium processor cooling.

- Permits CPU speeds above and beyond ordinary Precision Boost limits
- Clock speed scales with cooling performance
- Fully automated; no user input required

 

Mobile Extended Frequency Range (mXFR)

Enabling greater processor performance with a premium notebook chassis.

- Higher processor clock speeds offer more performance to the user.
- A premium notebook cooling solution can comfortably and quietly handle these higher energy requirements.3 mXFR allows AMD Ryzen™ mobile processors to offer faster performance in laptop systems.


 

Precision Boost

Fine-tuned processor performance adjusted in real time to meet the performance demands of your game or app.

- Adjusts clockspeeds in 25MHz increments to optimize performance
- Clockspeed changes can occur without pausing work

 

Precision Boost 2

Gracefully raises processor frequencies for snappier performance on any number of CPU cores.

- The AMD Ryzen™ processor monitors its own energy consumption and temperature.
- When the processor knows it's running cool and quiet, it can raise clock speeds in precise 25MHz steps for any application

 

 

Neural Net Prediction

A true artificial intelligence inside every AMD Ryzen™ processor employs an artificial neural network to understand your applications and anticipate the next steps of your workflow in real time. These "powers of prediction" can boost performance by steering your apps and games down the most efficient paths inside the processor.

 


Pure Power

A sophisticated grid of smart sensors that monitors CPU temperature, resource usage and power draw brings cool and quiet operation to your AMD Ryzen™ processor with intelligent power optimization circuits, plus the low power requirements of an advanced 14nm FinFET manufacturing technology.

 


Smart Prefetch

Sophisticated learning algorithms understand the inner workings of your applications and anticipate what data they might need. Smart Prefetch predictively brings that data into the AMD Ryzen™ processor for fast and responsive computing.

 

 

 

 

AMD Ryzen Master - Your tool to unlock AMD Ryzen™ Processors

Every AMD Ryzen processor is multiplier-unlocked from the factory, so you can personalize performance to your taste. AMD provides the AMD Ryzen Master utility to access this powerful advantage.

 

Personalized Performance

AMD Ryzen Master provides for up to four profiles to store custom clocks and voltage adjustments for both the Ryzen™ CPU and DDR4 memory. You can park cores and adjust memory timings, too.


 

 

System Monitoring

Accurate hardware status updates are vital, so AMD Ryzen Master has you covered with both real-time monitoring and a histogram of per-core clock rates and temperature, including average and peak readings.

Flawless in all facets of IT usage.

28 January 2019
Excellent CPU, never overheats under full load or even gets a real buzz going with the stock wraith spire cooler. Everything I need for everyday use (programming, video/photo editing and gaming). AMD sure made a great family in these Ryzens. I saved a tonne going AMD rather than a gaming chip like Intel.

I have had the CPU for about a month now and do not regret a thing.

Best Processor yet!

13 December 2018
I had purchased this processor on black friday to replace my faulty 4790K. This processor easily runs as fast if not faster and paired with a 280mm AIO does not run above 60 when stress testing! The days of overheating AMD are over!

Excellent Price-to-Performance w/ a capable stock cooler

13 December 2018
The R5 2600 and R5 2600X offer first in class performance for their price. If you want a CPU that will perform admirably in any task, you can't go wrong with this. The main question I hear is whether to pick this or the R5 2600, and the decision comes down to a few things:

- How big of a price difference is there? For less than say ~40 NZD I'd get the 2600X and use the stock cooler.
- Will you overclock? XFR2 is able to effectively match the performance of a manual all-core overclock in my experience, but it loses out when you really stress every core equally.
- Is your CPU cooling limited? If you have a small case with restricted coolin...

Death to the i5

3 December 2018
The 2600x lives up to its name - it's the i5 killer from AMD. 6 cores, 12 threads of refreshed Zen+ architecture that works more than fine on first generation x370 boards with a BIOS update. I'm seeing frequency boosts up to 4,250Mhz - over the 4,200Mhz cap out of the box. A simple enable of PBO in BIOS is all it takes. PBO = Precision Boost Overdrive. If you're gaming at 1440p or 4k you wont notice much difference between this and a 2700X. Reviews online say to save a buck and get the 2600. Dont listen to them. The X chips overclock better out of the box with PBO than with a tedious manual overclocking session. Go AMD. 10/10.

Best CPU for budget to mid-level gaming

26 August 2019
Nothing bad about this. The price, performance, and everything else you'd want in a CPU is perfect. I would recommend you buy a different CPU cooler, but even with the stock one it works amazingly. Highly recommend for budget to mid-level PC builds.
