Can The CM Wraith Ripper Cool The Next Generation Of Threadripper?
Theoretical Threadripper Thermals
Sadly there is no Threadripper leak along with the 3950X which could definitively answer the question, but we can make some educated guesses about this cooler which resembles an engine block. The Cooler Master Wraith Ripper was designed in partnership with AMD to cool the second generation of Threadripper chips, the 150 x 132 x 160mm is able to tame up to 250W of TDP after all!
If your case can fit this RGBehemoth of a cooler, your chip will have all the thermal headroom it desires and you can probably feel safe picking it up to cool a third generation chip now, if you so desire.
Cooler Master and AMD exclusively collaborated during the design of the Wraith Ripper, so it’s labelled as the official cooler for 2nd generation Threadripper. With a rating of up to 250W TDP, it should be capable of keeping the HEDT Threadripper temperatures under control.
