All I want to know is can I buy a Wraith cooler when they come out or will I need to buy a new athlon cpu?
I bought my Athlon 860k in November.
You can second hand no doubt. Or buy another CPU heat sink now from your local PC shop or online for that CPU. We can offer some advice if you would like.
The older standard coolers will be loud, but AMD is very much working hard to improve its image.
I'd just buy a Corsair H60. It's $50 and plenty powerful, and silent, for the 860k.
