Noctua releases a trio of coolers for Ryzen Threadripper and EPYC

These coolers will be adjustable to enable increased PCIe clearance.



Read more on Noctua's new TR4/SP3 cooling lineup.

Yeah, I gotta say that Noctua certainly is one of the few brands within the PC industry that truly shows how good they are. Not just that they're products are really good, their insane warranty on their products and then stuff like this.

Just shows how awesome Noctua really is... One thing that they need to change though, despite basically being their trademark, is their vomit tan and poop brown color scheme.
Once and if they do that, they will be golden

The coolers are smaller. None of them are anything like the mighty D-14 and 15. That is probably how they have kept the prices down. Not dissing them, they are amazing pieces of engineering, but yeah nowhere near as meaty as the D15.

Probably means heat isn't as big of an issue as we would think

I think they just add support so they can say they added support. You have 2 Ryzen 7 dies in there, and that means 2x the heat. If you want to crank this CPU you will need some proper custom water loop.

It's not necessarily 2x the heat. Not like a linear equation at least.

Ryzen doesn't run that hot so it's not that big of an issue since it is spread out over a much larger area it could have the same sort of surface area to heat ratio that a single 1800x may have for example. Not saying this is true but Noctua obviously know what they are doing and have had samples of them for testing. So I'd be pretty confident it would work. power is a different story however...

Well if you had differences in architecture than yes the curve won't be linear. In this case i think it will be very close to linear.

And physics 101: no matter on which amount of surface you spread it on, it heat is heat.

I don't doubt that IHS will remove the heat form cores. They are soldered (not like some of the competitors), and IHS is big enough. My concern is that cooling capacity of the cooler itself won't be enough to dissipate all that heat. Remember, in Tom's tests only top AIO coolers with their fans ramped up could keep overclocked 1800X in check. All the Air ones failed, or hardly passed.

So having that in mind... If Noctua coolers struggled with one CPU die, what is the point at putting them on 2 CPU dies. That is why i have said: "they just add support so they can say they have added support."
