You may not see WaterCool.de mentioned frequently in reviews unless you are deeply into watercooling. They have been producing impressive products for quite a while now and the HEATKILLER IV Pro is no exception. [H]ard|OCP's tests showed it to be equal in performance to the best they have seen. If you don't like the clear look of the cooler [H] reviewed the waterblock also comes in copper and copper with nickel plating as well. See the cooler in action here.
"WaterCool.de does not mess around when it comes to water cooling enthusiasts computers for well over a decade now. Many of us have been waiting with bated breath for Watercool's entry into the Threadripper cooling market, and it finally is with the HEATKILLER IV Pro. We compare it to five other water blocks."

Jeremy, Please forgive me if this comment is off-topic.
Nevertheless, several builder videos are confirming
problems with the third fastener on the Foxconn
retention plate for AMD Threadripper CPUs.
The Lotes version is counter-sunk, but
the Foxconn version is NOT counter-sunk.
Possible quick fix: the Foxconn retention plate
should come with a longer fastening screw
and/or their retention plate should also be
counter-sunk. Occam’s Razor!

Notice how this TR
Notice how this TR installation video starts
with the screw on the left:
My current theory is that, if one starts with
the 2 screws on the right, the retention plate
is slightly warped. That warp, in turn,
requires a lot more downwards pressure
before the screw threads mesh properly.
Solution: longer retention plate screws
and/or counter-sink the retention plate.
Lotes retention plate:
