Since we know that threadripper socket SP3r2 is literally massive, is there going to be a braket for the waterblock to fit it? Is the water block even big enough or will i have to buy another one to put on my h320 x2 to let it fit threadripper.

If you're going down the new Threadripper route (TR4 form factor) it will need a new bracket and waterblock from Swiftech. The new form factor is much larger than Ryzen. So, I'm expecting something from Swiftech in the coming months as motherboard makers release their X399 chipset products into the market.

Edit: AMD will be interested in getting as many specialists CPU cooling vendors on board for the launch of Threadripper during the summer time frame. Would think that Switftech can easily contact AMD to get the specs and make up a unique waterblock for TR4 LGA SP3r2 as well as the up coming EPYC using the SP3 socket design. So far the only specialist cooling vendor to showcase any products is Noctua.

The more interesting announcement from AMD is Vega RX. In addition to the Threadripper CPU waterblock, Swiftech will be interested in making the VGA waterblock for the up-coming Vega RX. AMD is also going to need cooling specialists like Switftech to provide water cooling solutions to enthusiasts who want to push the framerates at 4k/UHD with HDR10.

Right now, there is no stock available for Swiftechs' KOMODO NV-LE GTX TITAN X (Pascal) VGA waterblock. I assume this is due to popularity.

I would like to know something similar. If the Apogee SKF "Heirloom Series" will work with the threadripper socket. It says "Out of the box, the Apogee SKF is compatible with all current and upcoming CPU's: From Intel’s LGA 115x, 2011, 2011-v3 and 2066, to AMD’s legacy AM2/3, AM4 and upcoming SP3/FR4." in the product description but it doesn't say the TR4 socket. Can anyone from Swiftech answer?

Interested to see what Swiftech has to offer for the new TR4 socket on AMD's new Threadripper chip. AMD will be announcing availability of Threadripper at tomorrow's SIGGRAPH meet. Cooling requirements is 180W! Is the Apogee SKF too small? Not sure if any of Switftech's current CPU coolers can handle this amount of power?

Well from here we see "For example, an Epyc SoC qualified to run at a 155 watt thermal design power (TDP) can be set as low as 140 watts and as high as 175 watts." So if it supports Eypc with SP3/FR4 then it SHOULD also support Threadripper.

Definitely planning a threadripper build with my 320 X2 Prestige. I'd like to know any info on if/when Swiftech plans to make either a new waterblock or an adapter plate for threadripper.

Thanks!

It would be nice if swiftech weighed in here. I'm sure I'm not the only person ready to order my x399 components and am just waiting for swiftech to release a new waterblock (or at least an adapter, or even a release date). I might have to let go of my H320 d2 for a custom loop if we don't find out soon...

Apparently, under "mounting hardware" they have posted a kit (available 8/18) to mount the current line of blocks to the new socket. Doesn't show up on the main page, you have to go to accessories to find it. Not sure how long it's been up, but at least we have a solution now.

Yup, the AMD Threadripper socket TR4 mounting kit for Swiftech waterblocks is now available here: http://www.swiftech.com/TR4-Mounting-Kit.aspx

Are you planning to build with your 320 X2 Prestige or wait for Swiftech to come up with a new Threadripper CPU water block?
