AMD Ryzen 9 3900X AM4 CPU Review

Wraith Prism Cooler

The new AMD Wraith Prism Cooler

The AMD Wraith Prism represents AMD’s ultimate cooling solution for air-cooled processors. The Wraith Prism goes where no stock cooler has gone before with per-RGB LED control around the illuminated light ring and transparent fan blades for movement and rainbow color effect control. But the Wraith Prism isn’t just a pretty face; we’ve increased motherboard and RAM compatibility by minimizing the profile and added direct-contact heat pipes and fan overclocking control to increase thermal effectiveness, too. User-controlled RGB illumination relies on socket AM4 motherboards that support this feature, like the ASRock RGB LED, ASUS Aura sync, Biostar VIVID LED DJ, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, and MSI Mystic Light.

While the new PRISM cooler looks a lot like it’s Wraith MAX sibling, it has a few new tricks up its sleeve.

On one side you’ll find a small switch that controls the performance, low or high maximum fan speed.

On the same side, there are two plugs. The 4-pin is for attaching the included RGB cable to any compatible RGB port on your board. The 3-pin is for the included USB cord for stand-alone programming and control of the lighting.

The cables are folded up under the protective tray when you pull the cooler out of the box.

The cover protects the factory applied thermal compound. You can also see that all four heat-pipes make direct contact with the CPU for maximum performance.
