Asetek 836S-M1A 360mm Threadripper CPU Cooler Main Picture

The Asetek 836S-M1A is a high-end, all-in-one liquid cooling system designed for AMD Threadripper processors. To best cool these high-wattage CPUs, it features a full-size cold plate and large 360mm radiator with three 120mm fans. A powerful pump is integrated directly above the water block, but its compact profile ensures there is no interference with RAM module access or PCI-Express slots.

When building systems with this cooler, we normally include three Noctua NF-F12 fans to provide good airflow through the radiator along with low noise output. For some rackmount configurations, more powerful Noctua iPPC models may be needed instead to provide increased airflow for the system at the cost of some additional noise.

I personally prefer air-cooling (a heatsink and fan) but some modern, high-end CPUs are just putting out too much heat for that to be the best option anymore. Such coolers are technically viable, but can lead to thermal throttling under heavy workloads and the loss of a little bit of performance. When spending so much money on a powerful workstation, it makes sense to use hardware that will give you the full capabilities of the system you pay for - hence the use of liquid coolers like this one.
