AMD's Ryzen Threadripper CPUs will reportedly launch with bundled liquid cooling solutions

Good luck finding a TR4/SP3r2 compatible cooler at launch.

AMD's Ryzen Threadripper CPUs will reportedly launch with bundled liquid cooling solutions

 
While AMD's TR4 Ryzen Threadripper platform will offer a lot of pure CPU performance for the money, the platform itself will have its shortcomings. 
 
The most obvious of these issues is X399's SP3r2 socket, which is not supported by the vast majority of today's CPU coolers, which will make it difficult for Threadripper users to cool their CPUs at launch. This will change as newer CPU coolers hit the market, though it will likely be one of the platform's biggest issues at launch. 


Reports from Hermitage Akihabara have stated that Threadripper will launch on August 10th in Japan and release with a bundled AIO liquid cooler, providing users with ample cooling when the platform launches. This cooling solution should be more than adequate to handle AMD's latest CPUs at their stock settings, though it is unknown how they will handle as huge 16-core overclock.

(Good luck finding a CPU cooler that supports that socket)

  

If Threadripper releases at AMD's previously announced $799 and $999 price points for their 16-core and 12-core models, free cooler bundles will add a lot more value to AMD's newest platform, as Intel does not ship stock cooling solutions with X299 CPUs. 

AMD will be announcing more information on their new Threadripper CPUs in the coming weeks, so expect to hear more about the X399 platform soon.

Don't care, still awesome. Even more awesome if that cooler is actually half capable. Makes Intel seem even more expensive.Quote

If they will ship an AIO of 240 with them then it would be a great deal. Would be very smart move fron AMD.

The thing is that I dont think a 240 AIO would be enough to cool that beast.... I would say it would at least need a 280 or 360 rad only for the cpu.Quote

If it can only reach 4ghz I would say it won't be a problem Quote

It's gonna be a 120mm, mark my words. Whatever it is, excellent idea if it's halve decent like AlienALX said.

Still loving that Zenith board!! Looks like something you pull from an alien spaceship.Quote

Most likely, yes. Every case has at least one 120mm fan mount in the back. Not every case has two 120mm or 140mm in the front or at the top. So for the sake of compatibility AND cost it will be 120mm. But that's still a lot better than any air cooling solution.Quote
