AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper CPUs are just a week away from launch and we are rounding up all the CPU coolers that you can purchase for these massive HEDT chips. We have already rounded up all of the X399 motherboards in a detailed post over here so you might want to check out which X399 product is perfect for your needs.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper X399 Thermal Solutions / Coolers Roundup – Beefy HEDT CPUs Need Beefy Coolers

It’s worth noting that all previously released coolers are incompatible with Ryzen Threadripper. A new range of CPU coolers are required to dissipate heat from the massive heatspreader on AMD Threadripper CPUs. There are a total of nine manufacturers in the cooling industry who will offer the latest coolers for Ryzen Threadripper processors.

Noctua Prepares High-End Air Coolers For EPYC and Ryzen Threadripper CPUs

In an official press release, Noctua has confirmed the launch of three high-end heatsink coolers for the TR4 (Ryzen Threadripper) and SP3 (EPYC) socket based platforms. Noctua is launching their well renowned NH-U14S, NH-U12S and NH-U9 with larger contact surfaces and their latest SecuFirm2 mounting system which is now compatible with TR4/SP3 platforms. Following are the links for the new coolers along with their suggested retail prices:

At 70x56mm, the copper contact surface of the new TR4-SP3 coolers is more than double the size of the standard models. Tailored to fit the enormous integrated heat-spreaders (IHS) of AMD’s TR4/SP3-based processors, this customised design allows for an optimal heat flow from the CPU over the base to the heatpipes and on to the cooling fins.Coming in 140mm, 120mm and 92mm form factors, the three new coolers target specific application profiles. Whereas the 140mm size NH-U14S TR4-SP3 provides the highest level of cooling performance, which makes it ideal for top-end, enthusiast-grade TR4/SP3 systems, the 120mm size NH-U12S TR4-SP3 combines outstanding cooling performance with excellent compatibility: at 158mm height and 125mm width, it is short enough to fit most modern tower cases and stays clear of the top PCIe slot on most motherboards. Last but not least, the 92mm size NH-U9 TR4-SP3 provides 100% PCIe clearance and, at the same time, its height of only 125mm allows it to fit smaller cases and most 4U size rack-mount enclosures.

While the NH-U14S TR4-SP3 and NH-U12S TR4-SP3 are supplied with one of Noctua’s premium-grade NF-A15 PWM and NF-F12 PWM fans respectively, the NH-U9 TR4-SP3 is equipped with two NF-A9 PWM 92mm fans. This push/pull dual fan configuration allows it to achieve a level of quiet cooling performance that is remarkable for such a compact cooler and comes close to the bigger NH-U12S TR4-SP3.

Topped off with Noctua’s proven NT-H1 thermal compound and a full 6-year manufacturer’s warranty, the NH-U14S TR4-SP3, NH-U12S TR4-SP3 and NH-U9 TR4-SP3 are complete premium-quality solutions that combine outstanding performance and superb acoustics for TR4 and SP3 based high-end systems. via Noctua

Arctic Freezer Series Comes in Air and Liquid Cooling Options For Threadripper

Arctic is a renowned OEM in the cooling industry. They are offering three new coolers for the Ryzen Threadripper platform which are part of their Freezer series. You can find them listed below:

The Arctic Freezer 33 is a semi passive tower CPU cooler which delivers better cooling performance than a comparable heatsinks by up to 30%. It’s also really cheap with a price of just $45.90 which is making it a price to performance champ in the budget cooling field. The heatsink features a better heat dissipation design and has copper heatpipes that make direct contact with the processor IHS, delivering better heat dissipation to the aluminum fin heatsink.

Next up, we have two liquid cooling solutions that include the Liquid Freezer 240 and the Liquid Freezer 360. As the name suggests, the former features a 240mm radiator while the latter comes with a 360mm radiator. Both are very dense cooling systems as they features fans on both sides of their radiators. The 240mm radiator comes with 4 x F12 PWM PST and the 360mm radiator comes with 6 x F12 PWM PST fans. The heatsink is said to perform very quiet, even with all the fans so that will be a plus. The pump is very efficient, featuring a smooth and even surface.

Cooler Master’s Legendary Hyper 212 Heatsink Is Compatible With Ryzen Threadripper

Cooler Master has announced that two of their coolers will be fully compatible with Threadripper CPUs. These include the following:

The Cooler Master Hyper 212 is getting a new revision which will be known as TR Edition. Cooler Master’s Hyper 212 heatsink is a very popular heatsink cooler that is aimed at budget PC builders and still offers great cooling performance. The heatsink makes use of funnel shaped aluminum fins and four direct contact heatpipes that also act as a contact surface with the heatspreader on CPUs. The cooler can be fitted with two XtraFlo 120mm PWM fans that run between 600 and 2000 RPM.

Cooler Master is also fine tuning their MasterLiquid 240 Liquid Cooler for Ryzen Threadripper CPUs which will be readily available in the market at launch day. The MasterLiquid 240 solution comes in a 240mm radiator design with a low profile, dual chamber pump that transfers the liquid through a FEP tubing system with sleeved tubes. The thermal solution will cost $87.99 which is a sweet spot pricing for a liquid cooler.
