AMD Includes Asetek Liquid Cooling Retention Kits with Ryzen Threadripper CPUs

Asetek® (ASETEK.OL) today announced that retention kits for its desktop liquid coolers will be included with AMD’s new Ryzen Threadripper boxed processors. The partnership will enable customers to easily utilize any existing Asetek liquid cooler with the new platform right out of the box.

AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper is a new processor platform targeting the high-end desktop (HEDT) market, with a clear focus on prosumers. Offered in 16 and 12 core variants with TDPs up to 180 Watts, Ryzen Threadripper benefits from the increased efficiency of Asetek liquid cooling.

“By partnering with Asetek, AMD is poised to deliver a clear win for their user base and product ecosystem given Asetek’s large footprint in the DIY market with partners such as Corsair, NZXT, and EVGA,” said John Hamill, Asetek Chief Operating Officer.

The AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPU is ideal for customers who perform many demanding tasks at the same time and are looking for a complete, reliable solution from a trusted brand. To learn more about AMD”s new Ryzen Threadripper CPU, visit
