List of Compatible CPU Coolers for AMD Ryzen Threadripper Processors

The new AMD Ryzen Threadripper and X399 motherboard uses a new type of socket, the TR4. This means that people who are planning to get the new system would need a new CPU cooler, or specifically a compatible retention kit. AMD recommends using a liquid cooling solution (or a really good air cooler) since this 180W TDP processor would require better cooling solution to keep the Treadripper’s temperature at bay. Luckily, AMD made it easy by providing a list of compatible CPU coolers for the Threadripper processors. And on top of that, if you already own some of the Asetek-based AIO liquid cooling, AMD will provide a retention kit compatible with the TR4 socket. Check the list below for the compatible CPU coolers.

List of AMD Threadripper Compatible AIO Liquid CPU Coolers

According to AMD’s Robert Hallock said:

“It’s super simple: included with every AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPU is a free mounting bracket that enables compatibility with a wide range of premium closed-loop liquid cooling (CLC) solutions. These beautiful CLCs will keep your new Threadripper chip nice and chilly, and we maintain a list of over 20 solutions that are compatible with the included bracket. We’ll be updating the list regularly for you!

There are also cooling solutions on the way that do not use AMD’s provided bracket, and those will be added to the official list over time as well. Before purchasing such a solution, verify with the manufacturer or retailer that the cooler includes out-of-box sTR4 support. Some coolers pre-date the Ryzen Threadripper CPU, and are receiving mid-production updates after a certain date to include the compatible mounting hardware.”

Like I mentioned above, most of the AIO liquid CPU cooler are Asetek-made; below are the compatible CPU coolers:

Note that the CPU coolers listed above are not the only ones that will be compatible with the new Threadripper. Expect that there will be new models (from CPU cooler manufacturers) coming out soon that are specifically designed for the new system. For example, Noctua will be releasing the new NH-U14S TR4-SP3, NH-U12S TR4-SP3 and NH-U9 TR4-SP3 CPU air coolers designed for AMD Ryzen Threadripper X399 and EPYC platforms.
