Is this box big enough to contain a reference/stock cooler design?

AMD Showcases Threadripper's packaging


AMD's Lisa Su has officially revealed the packaging of their upcoming Ryzen Threadripper processes, stating that the company will be revealing more information about their TR4 platform at SIGGRAPH 2017. At this event, AMD will also be showcasing their new Radeon Vega lineup of GPUs. 

We can see that Threadripper will have a very different packaging design to their standard Ryzen silicon, coming with a much larger box that seems to be large enough to contain both a CPU and a reference cooling solution. At this time, AMD has not revealed whether or not Threadripper will release with a stock/reference cooling solution, though it seems unlikely that such a large box would be needed for just a CPU. 

AMD has confirmed that this packaging is for retail Threadripper CPUs, which means that this packaging is not part of a "review kit" and will not be exclusive to the PC/gaming press.

Ryzen Threadripper is expected to hit retail shelves on August 9th or 10th, though AMD has not revealed any official confirmation at this time. AMD is expected to reveal more about their Ryzen Threadripper CPUs and their TR4 platform within the next week or so.
