Noctua Ready with Heatsink Protoypes for Threadripper TR4/SP3 Sockets

Noctua at its Computex 2017 booth, showed off its very first socket TR4/SP3 (AMD Ryzen Threadripper) ready CPU cooler prototypes. These coolers are variants of Noctua's existing platforms - NH-U14S, NH-U12S, and NHU9, but come factory-fitted with socket TR4/SP3 retention modules, and large bases. The coolers also include new-generation PWM-ready variants of the NF-F12, NF-A15, and NF-A9 fans. All three are tower-type heatsinks, designed for clearance around the large CPU socket, and the practically non-existent gap between the socket and the memory slots, at least on motherboards we've seen so far.

You 100% will and I don't know why you'd think otherwise.

Does this means my D14 will be compatible with threadripper as well? D14 and D15 have similar baseplate.

Nice! Though I'd swap the fan(s) immediately, even they are high-quality, but the ugliest fans on the market. They were ugly back in 2006, they are still ugly in 2017.

you can totally see that inside the case... if you value silence you dont have a window in your case

I value silence, but I don't have cash to get 1.5TB of SSD space. What I mean, as long there are HDDs in system, there's no sense to get a 20eur fan (multiply that by how many you need), since the HDD's are the most noisy thing in the system. Just like in my PC. It's not compeletely silent, but there's no way I can call my PC noisy. :toast:

time for big coolers
"The Orochi comes with 10 pure-copper heatpipes, and its manufacturer claims that it can passively cool up a quad-core processor in a thermal envelope of up to 100 watts. If you plan on going beyond the 100 watts threshold, you can safely strap on the extremely silent 14-centimeter fan that spins at 5000 rotations per minute."

What a time to be alive! (if it was true)

Basically they made the u9s 20% larger and doubled the size of the u12s and u14s! Considering ryzen is quite efficient, tdp's will be nearly double and the standard u12s can cool a r7 running at 4ghz quite well, I think these will keep threadripper sufficiently coo at stock speeds (u9s based one) and oc-ed (u12s based one near max and u14s based one should get you a marginally better oc at the same temperature!)!
