FYI, the Athlon 880K also comes with the Wraith cooler - it just doesn't have the illuminated shroud.

I think the 7870K's have a similar setup though I'm not absolutely certain.

The 880K and 7870K come with what AMD calls their "Near-silent 125W AMD Thermal Solution", which does not have the shroud. I'm not sure if it's the same fan or heatsink design. I'd have to see them in person and compare.

(Just going by AMD's official information on the subject.)

Nice marketing move here by AMD. Renders all existing stock with the old fan obsolete, forcing retailers to discount those, clear their inventory, and rebuy the new version.

From a consumer side, makes the value equation even better for AMD if you don't have to budget for an aftermarket fan.

Nice to see a better option form AMD here, but is it to little to late??
