Asetek's 6th gen solution is the 670LS (240mm with 27mm thickness). There's a 670LT with a 38mm thickness that is impractical for sale due to case compatibility for mass market.


edit: this 6th gen review is relevant
While more differentiation can be good it looks like it wouldn't make a big difference on a mainstream platform. Look at how small the differences are on AM4

I'm sure on HEDT the changes grow with TDP but probably not massively
