I purchased an AMD FX8370 six month ago before the Wraith cooler was included in the deal. Is it possible to get a Wraith cooler for it now that it is included with the purchase? It would be nice. I have my FX8370 at 4.113GHz.
AMD doesn't sell the Wraith cooler separately. It's great for a stock heatsink, but for overclocking you're going to want something a bit more powerful. Also, 4.1ghz is below the 4.2ghz turbo frequency, so something doesn't sound right, as you should easily be able to get 4.2, and even 4.5ghz without much difficulty. Don't expect to get my results, I got a really good chip.
Thanks for the reply, I have a problem with heat so obviously I don't have a proper cooler. I will have to come up with a plan "B".

Best thing to do is get a liquid cooler, especially if you're in a warm climate, as it'll allow you to have silence and cooling power, but if you don't mind the noise, and your case can handle it, there's the CoolerMaster 212 Evo.
Might try some manual adjustments, ASUS boards are pretty conservative when it comes to applying the voltage.
Oh I know,Just got lazy awhile back bumped up the Multiplier,shut off all the power saving "features"and unparked all the cores,then got lazy and just left it
So what are you using for a cpu cooler if I may ask?
