It is striking that the AMD will ship the Ryzen 9 3900XT and Ryzen 7 3800XT without a cooler. Buyers of the 3900X and 3800X still receive a Wraith Prism RGB processor cooler from AMD with the boxed variant, but the cooler is not included with the 3900XT and 3800XT. AMD’s argument is that the hardware enthusiasts in this segment more often than not use an aftermarket CPU cooler to achieve maximum performance. Of the AMD Ryzen 3000XT processors, the Ryzen 5 3600XT is the only one that does come with a cooler. As with the 3600X, this comes with the Wraith Spire without RGB lighting.
