Conclusion: Bundled Coolers Generally Sufficient

As this test of AMD's bundled coolers reveals, these chill-machines are more than adequate for most users and applications.

However, if you're in the market for a quieter model, a real freezer powerhouse or a cooler that offers variable cooling capabilities, you should take a look at the vast array of cooler manufacturers.

If you want a cooler with excellent, variable capabilities, the brand-new Aero7 from Coolermaster is an outstanding choice.
