Asetek confirms that a TR4 retention kits will be included with all AMD Threadripper

This means that lots of existing coolers will support Threadripper out of the box.



Read more on Threadripper's bundled Asetek retention bracket.

Very good for AMD, they seem to be trying very hard to make sure the launch is as smooth as possible. Which is good since Ryzen's launch was a bit shaky despite it's impressive performance.

I think the coolers should do fine. AMD made a smart move to make sure that the actual working dies on TR are diagonal to spread the heat output over a greater surface area which should help them from heating each other up. We will see how it works out
