AMD Ryzen Threadripper is coming this month with the new Socket TR4 which is perhaps the largest consume-class socket and processor. A few aftermarket cooler manufacturers offer support for the TR4 Socket and SP3 Socket for the AMD EPYC enterprise-class processors and now the list includes Noctua. Noctua introduces three new CPU coolers for the AMD Socket TR4 and SP3 which are TP4-SP3 versions of Noctua’s award-winning NH-U14S, NH-U12S and NH-U9 CPU coolers which is bundled with NF-A15, NF-F12 and NF-A9 premium fans. The new coolers offer efficient and quiet cooling for the new TR4 and SP3 processors particularly if the liquid cooling bundled with the Ryzen Threadrippers doesn’t fit your chassis.

“A high-end platform usually calls for high-end cooling solutions and that’s precisely the case with AMD’s new Epyc and upcoming Ryzen Threadripper ecosystems. We have therefore customised our award-winning NH-U14S, NH-U12S and NH-U9 coolers so that users can enjoy the performance and quietness of these proven premium heatsinks on the new AMD platforms.” - Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO)

Tailored Fit for TR4 and SP3
With the new TR4 and SP3 having a 70 by 56mm IHS surface, most coolers today wouldn’t be able to provide efficient cooling without covering the entire surface. Noctua tailor-fitted the new coolers with a new base to allow optimal heat transfer from CPU to the cooler.

Noctua’s SecuFirm2 Mounting System
The TR4-SP3 version coolers also feature the SecuFirm2 mounting system with a completely custom design to fit the new sockets but offer the same easy-to-install and safety features. The mechanism uses four spring-loaded screws that offers tight but safe mounting along with optimal compatibility for multi-GPU configurations by allow builders to offset the cooler by 3 to 6 mm towards the edge and away from the PCIe slots.

Variety of Sizes
Noctua offers their new TR4-SP3 coolers in three form factors: the NH-U14S TR4-SP3 at 140mm, NH-U12S TR4-SP3 at 120mm, and the NH-U9 TR4-SP3 at 92mm. The different sizes target different demands of builders today.

Award-Winning NT-H1 Thermal Compound
The three new TF4-SP3 coolers are bundled with the Noctua NT-H1 thermal compound offering a complete premium-quality cooling solution for the Ryzen Threadripper and EPYC processors.

Pricing and Availability
All three models will be shipping shortly and should start to appear in stores towards the end of August. Noctua also gives the coolers a 6-year warranty. The suggested retail prices are as follows:
NH-U14S TR4-SP3: EUR 79.90 / USD 79.90
NH-U12S TR4-SP3: EUR 69.90 / USD 69.90
NH-U9 TR4-SP3: EUR 69.90 / USD 69.90
