This cooler would be great for EPYC processors, if someone wants to build a machine at home without suffering from the noise that server fans create.

The engineering that went into that socket are simply amazing for a consumer system. It's good that it finally has a specially designed cooler that this particular chip needs.

The other companies went the lazy rout, Enermax already owned all of them. More and more people and companies are realizing intel is doneso, just bet on the cpu touched by god (Jim Keller).

Fanboying aside, it is understandable that companies wouldn't want to redesign their products for an unconventional and niche product.

So Tom's Hardware, how about a comparison of liquid cooling tech on TR4? It would be cool to see if the full coverage water block really provides better cooling than the adapted blocks.

TR4... sounds like a Terminator or something. Who is naming things at AMD? Give them a raise.

great marketing move. in reality, the threadripper ihs works so well that hilbert hagedoorn was able to touch it after 1 hour of aida 65 and it was (outside of the asetek cold plate) lukewarm to the touch.

Enough of the hyperbole. This is wrong for three reason.

First, It's not lazy to offer extra options to your customers. Lots of people already have existing liquid cooling components and don't want to buy newer versions due to a platform switch. Releasing new mounting brackets lets people use what they already have for minimal cost. It may not perform as well as TR$-specific coolers, but it's good enough for most people. It's good business to take care of your existing customers.

Second, plenty of the companies releasing the new brackets are also making TR4 specific parts as well. Again, options for their customers.

Third, most AIO coolers license Asetek's patent or even Asetek's actual block. The companies selling these adapter brackets may not be able to change the block for legal reasons.


Something may or may not already be in the works.
