Best LGA 2066 and TR4 CPU Coolers in 2017-18 [Air & Liquid]

TR4 Socket is the latest CPU Socket from AMD for its AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors. AMD Ryzen Threadripper is the high-end desktop processor series and they are the first processors from AMD to feature a pinless design and having a LGA Socket Type. These are huge, power hungry and very powerful processors and due to this they have rendered many popular current generation CPU coolers useless. Even most of the AM4 Socket compatible CPU coolers won’t be able to fit the AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors.

This is a bit of headache for gamers or users who want to build high performance PC using these processors. However, some of the companies have launched their new TR4 CPU coolers and some of them made some adjustment by releasing new TR4 mounting kits to fit these TR4 socket processors. The availability of these coolers is a bit of concern as some of the proposed TR4 Socket coolers have not come to market as of now. Same is the case with Intel LGA 2066 Socket as most of the coolers are not compatible with this new Socket from Intel. Some of the popular Intel Core X-series Processors include Intel Core i9-7900X, Intel Core i9-7920X, Intel Core i7-7820X, Intel Core i7-7800X, Intel Core i7-7740X and Intel Core i5-7640X

So, in this post I am going to list down the best LGA 2066 and TR4 Socket CPU coolers (air/water or liquid) for use with Intel Core-X series and AMD Ryzen Threadripper or TR4 Socket processors. All the below mentioned CPU coolers fully support the 180W Ryzen Threadripper processors.

Note: Socket TR4 or sTR4 is a short form for Socket Threadripper 4 and is also known as Socket SP3r2. The number of pins or contacts in Socket TR4 are 4096. You must also know that Ryzen Threadripper Processors require an AMD X399 Chipset Motherboard. On the other hand, LGA 2066 Socket is also called Socket R4 and it supports Intel X299 chipset motherboards.
