Threadripper will reportedly include a bundled Asetek retention kit

 
According to a new report from Gamers Nexus, AMD’s new Ryzen Threadripper series CPUs will release with an Asetek retention kit, which will allow X399 users to utilise a wide range of AIO cooling solutions. 
 
Asetek is a manufacturer of all-in-one closed-loop-liquid coolers (CLCs), manufacturing cooler designs for NZXT, EVGA and around half of Corsair’s Liquid cooling lineup. This stock cooling bracket for Threadripper will allow purchasers to easily utilise Asetek made liquid cooling solutions.   
 
Given the sheer size of Threadripper’s IHS, many will argue that normal AIO liquid coolers will not have a large enough copper base to sufficiently cover the surface of the IHS, which is true. However, it is likely that Asetek’s cooler designs will have a large enough core to cover the two Threadripper/Ryzen dies that are contained underneath, though this will need to be confirmed at a later date with dedicated testing.

We would advise users that are interested in Threadripper to delay their orders until some third party testing is conducted on the platform so that further advice/recommendations for coolers and other accessories can be made. 

Given the size and TDP of Threadripper, it is likely that coolers with smaller radiators (120/140mm) may be inadvisable, especially when overclocking.
