Arctic Cooling provides some details about which of its coolers will be able to support the upcoming Socket AM4 based AMD Ryzen processors. The company claims most of its coolers support AM4 without requiring further adaption.
Three models are not compatible with AM4, one is end-of-life and the other two will be replaced by a new model in spring 2017. The company's Liquid Freezer watercooling lineup is not compatible with AM4 but will receive an extension kit in spring 2017. Arctic says customers of the Liquid Freezer can contact Arctic support for more details. It's not clear if these kits are offered for free.
Almost all ARCTIC CPU Coolers are applicable to AMD
Regarding the forthcoming market entry of the AM4-platform of AMD, we from ARCTIC have good news for you – the bulk of our CPU-coolers is already compatible to the AM4-socket and needs no further adaption. Among others, these are the complete Alpine 64-Series, all models of Freezer 13 and the Freezer Xtreme. So, whoever plans to switch to the new AMD socket, has no need to do without his reliable ARCTIC CPU-cooler.
Extension Kit for Liquid Freezers
Concerning the models of the Freezer 32-series and Freezer 11, AM4-compatibility will be achieved with the successors Freezer 12 and Freezer 33. Both will be available this spring. For the Liquid Freezers 120 and 240, we will provide an AM4-solution from early april: All already acquired Liquid Freezers can be upgraded with an extension kit. Please contact the ARCTIC support directly (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Unsurprisingly, Arctic Cooler also confirms that all of its LGA1151 socket coolers are compatible with Kaby Lake.
