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

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



Read more on AMD's Threadripper CPUs reportedly releasing with bundles AIO liquid coolers.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

Exactly my train of thought. Hoping they'll opt for bigger though. Don't think it'll be beneficial to go for smaller. Bundle it with peltier maybe?

I would dispute this. A good air cooler can complete with a 240 AIO, and beat a 120 handily. A 120 would be a step up over a Wraith for sure, but not by as much as you may think. People tend to automatically assume even the crappiest AIO is better than air, but that's mainly due to bad testing by reviewers. Stress test an AIO for over an hour or 2 instead of 20 minutes and you'll see quite a difference in CPU temps.

I failed to specify that I was talking about stock coolers. I'm aware that some air cooler can outperform some liquid coolers. But I think those are usually high-end air coolers, or average air cooler compared to a particularly low end liquid cooler.


I don't use liquid coolers. I don't trust the pumps and I don't want to risk leakage. I'm perfectly fine with a push/pull air cooler that only needs fan swapping in case one of them dies.

There is no doubt in my mind, it will be 120mm if there is one. 240mm presents compatibility issues. Not all cases can fit a 120mm, but pretty much every case has space for a 120mm fan.

Hopefully, cooling will be decent, but this thing will no doubt produce an insane amount of heat when overclocked.

At Computex there were more than a few 360mm rads on show, which makes sense given the 16-core Threadripper and 18-core X299 CPUs that were announced there.
