Swiftech Supports AMD Threadripper Sockets With TR4 Mounting Kit

Swiftech sent word that it, too, has developed a new mounting bracket for AMD’s HEDT Threadripper processor. The upgraded bracket can be used with the following Swiftech products:

  • Apogee XL2 waterblock
  • Apogee XL waterblock
  • Apogee Drive II (Any Model)
  • H140 X AIO cooling kit
  • H220 X AIO cooling kit
  • H240 X AIO cooling kit
  • H220 X2 AIO cooling kit
  • H220 X2 Prestige AIO cooling kit
  • H240 X2 AIO cooling kit
  • H240 X2 Prestige AIO cooling kit
  • H320 X2 AIO cooling kit
  • H320 X2 Prestige AIO cooling kit

This upgraded mounting bracket is designed in such a way that it’s also compatible with previous AM2/AM3/AM4 and legacy AMD sockets.

Currently, AMD includes a TR4-ready mounting bracket with its Threadripper processor that fits any Asetek-built all-in-one cooler. Because of that, the mounting bracket supplied by AMD covers products from a variety of AIO cooler manufacturers such as Thermaltake, EVGA, Corsair, and Fractal Design to name a few. Other companies, such as Cooler Master and Alphacool, have turned to custom designed mounting brackets for their products. Enermax took it one step further by developing a water pump with a cold plate that completely covers the processor’s integrated heat spreader.

Even though Swiftech is technically just announcing a mounting bracket upgrade kit for AMD’s Threadripper, it should be noted that all the company’s water blocks are built using a 60 x 60mm copper cold plate that covers the majority of the Treadripper’s 68 x 51mm integrated heat spreader.

Swiftech’s mounting bracket upgrade kit is available now for $9 from the company website.

    Glad someone makes a coldplate "big enough" for thread ripper

    Surprised and disappointed that only Enermax has had the forethought to release or even announce an AIO with a pump and cold plate large enough to completely cover the processor's heat spreader. The new Enermax AIO is clearly worth a second look.

    Threadripper really needs dedicated new copper plates from the liquid makers that covers the whole socket for best heat dissipation (easy thx to the huge die).

    YA, Enermax is the only option to cool TR the is supposed to be done, everyone with with patches (that's not bad on itself, but at least release/announce new kits dedicated to TR).

    Intel is an afterthought, focus your efforts on AMD's waifu.

    I have the Swiftech Apogee XL2 for my FX-8350. Keeps it as cool as it needs to be no matter what OC. Good company! I had a leak in my first one, and they replaced it within a couple days of reporting it. Luckily I found the leak before anything crazy happened. Mine is the one in the 2nd picture.

    I feel like everyone else here though... Enermax did it right and I wouldn't put a cold plate that doesn't fit the entire area of Threadripper even if they guaranteed it would work fine. It doesn't seem smart.

    Swiftech can do it because their pump is a real pump mounted to the radiator, not on the CPU block. They can make the water block as big as they want.
