Water cooling kit/AIO for TR4 Threadripper

Hi everyone,

I'm putting a build together for a 1900x or 1950x.

I was originally going for air cooling but the Dark Rock Pro and Noctua - NH-U14S TR4-SP3 may not give me enough clearance on the top pci-e slot.

I'm looking at other cooling methods and was thinking about the Corsair H150i etc... but then I've seen and been told basically to avoid CLC's.

So, I'm now looking at water cooling kits such as this one but I can't find any that are compatible with the TR4 socket.

Do these exist for this socket? Or would this be a full custom job? I don't really want to or have the budget to do a full custom job right now - I'm a massive beginner with water cooling.

The case I'm currently going with is the Corsair 750D Airflow edition - as I said, it was going to be an airflow build but now I'm not sure. I've seen this case is also good for water cooling so I'm thinking I'll stick with it?

I love the look of this route though.

Thanks in advance!

EDIT Just found this by Swiftech and it looks great - also compatible with TR4. I've just realised that there are AIO and DIY coolant kits by EK and Swiftech. Think I definitely want to go this route - the AIO kits look amazing and I wonder why anyone would go with a CLC instead.

If anyone could offer any advice on any Swiftech or EK AIO's (preferably RGB but that's optional) then I'd love to know more.

I would go for a full custom set up.
On my 2700X, i did install a Heatkiller IV Niquel and it rocks.

I've used a quite a few Swiftech H series and EK Phoenix, but never on TR4. That said, I prefer the Swiftech as the pump is a bit stronger (and quieter), the rad has better dissipation at lower fan speeds (i.e. better cooling with lower noise), it is much more expansion friendly (from the sense of refill and bleed) and it has better pricing. But.....the new X3 RGB fans really weigh down the performance of the unit. It's still quieter than the EK at like performance, but a change to a good set of top tier fans makes a pretty dramatic difference. So, once you do the fan upgrade, pricing winds up about the same.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

because it doesn't actually make any difference. I wouldn't go with swiftech (reliability issues) the EK (too expensive) over doing my own loop if I was going WC and not using an AIO.

Air cooler deepcool fryzen cools good enough and won't cover any pci slots or ram.If your water cooling then use heatkiller,xspc or phanteks tr4 blocks those the best cooling ones.
