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.
