The new AMD Ryzen 7 processors hit the stores on March 2, 2017, when pre-orders were opened for the Ryzen 7 1800X (Lowest Price), the Ryzen 7 1700X and the Ryzen 7 1700 processors. But what about the Ryzen 7 CPU coolers? The Ryzen 7 1700 comes with a free AMD Wraith Spire LED cooler, but the two higher-performance models do not come with any CPU cooler.
The AMD Ryzen 7 processors still use the same AM4 socket, but the mount holes are placed further out. This may mean your existing AM4 cooler may not mount properly on the new Ryzen 7 motherboards. So let’s check out what AMD’s CPU cooler partners have in store to pair with the AMD Ryzen 7 processors!
