NZXT has announced that their three popular AiO watercoolers, the Kraken X62, Kraken X52, and Kraken X61 will be compatible with Threadripper, arriving soon to retailers.
NZXT has been working with AMD and created an adapter for SocketTR4 to allow you to use their cooler in your new system. The retention clip will be supplied by AMD, in the package the new CPUs. This is a good thing, considering the unique new way in which you install Threadripper processors. If you haven't seen the video demonstrating the installation process you can see it below.

[H]ard|OCP reviews the largest of the Kraken series from NZXT, the X62. This dual 140mm fan cooler measures 315x143x30mm and weighs just over 1.2kg so make sure your case has the space before purchasing this AiO watercooler. The default setting offers acceptable cooling performance while producing 39.9dBA but with a cooler of this stature the real performance numbers to pay attention to are the full speed numbers. At full speed the cooler surpasses the competition and ends up at the top of the charts albeit with an increase in audibility to 46.9dBA. It will cost you about $160 to pick up the Gold Award winning cooler.
"With today's NZXT Kraken review we step up the performance ladder and review its X62 model AIO CPU Cooler. As NZXT spells out on it website, and it is not modest about it, saying that the new Kraken series "have been redesigned to bring you the greatest experience in liquid cooling, all backed by an industry-leading 6-year warranty."
