    THAT is rad. ;-) Reply

    Is it going to be possible to make new universal blocks that are big enough to fully cover giant chips like threadripper and still fit on boards designed for smaller mainstream chips? Reply

    DanNeely, probably not, but check out various reviews that have been published on youtube demonstrating different paste application methods for TR using existing products. Reply

    Perhaps it'll depend on how big Intel's new chips are? Reply

    A good price for something that will dissipate 500W+ and Epyc compatibility as well... I hope the board and CPU prices come down a bit more as demand boosts production... Reply

    Awesome. The partial heatspreader coverage is what is holding me back from using an adapter with my Corsair AIOs. Reply

    I love Enermax products, their PSU's are nothing less than amazing. Reply

    Do existing waterblocks that can be made bracket-compatible cover the silicon directly under the IHS? Maybe I am missing something, but doesn't 'the shortest distance between two points' also apply to heat dissipation? Reply

    that would mean with TR that there is basically an X type design in the LCS, probably not the best option, and if only 2 of those dies are actually pushing heat, that means there would more or less have to be specific plate for specific chip being used, seems best off to just cover 100% of the IHS ^.^ Reply

    Yep, the further you move away from the hot chips, the less important the thermal contact becomes for the overall heat transfer. Reply

    What's lacking with TR? Cooling solution at launch. I'm not talking about adapters. They could have at least worked with one company to bring one decent solution for early birds. I bought one 1920x but I got to wait for a proper solution. Reply
