Gigabyte AORUS WaterForce X CPU Coolers are compatible with Intel LGA1700

It makes since for manufacturers of CPU coolers to design and make coolers that are compatible with future processors. The new socket type LGA1700 will be slightly larger, with an estimated chip size of 37.5x45mm

Taken from Videocardz … Gigabyte has recently introduced its new Aorus WaterForce X series featuring 280mm, 280mm, and 240mm radiators. These are the new All-in-One coolers with 60mm full-color LCD installed on the pumps. Upon checking their specifications one will notice that those coolers already support Intel 1700 socket, which has not been released yet. Interestingly, the list does not feature an LGA1200 socket:

The LGA1700 socket is 6.5 mm taller than LGA1200. This means that all coolers which already support LGA2066 or LGA2011 sockets (such as these WaterForce coolers) should be compatible with the LGA1700 socket, but of course only if necessary bracket is provided.
