"The Kaby Lake-X and Skylake-X processors drop into an LGA2066 interface, supported by Intel's X299 chipset. Although LGA2066 incorporates more pins than LGA 2011v3, it shares many of the same dimensions. As a result, it's physically compatible with existing LGA 2011v3 coolers. However, Intel recommends water cooling as a minimum requirement due to Skylake-X's TDP rating. Skylake-X processors also have an integrated voltage regulator (IVR) that is similar to the FIVR implementation on Broadwell-E parts."
Like all of Intel's unlocked SKUs, the newest X-series will be not include with any cooler out of the box. Any previous CPU coolers that supported the LGA2011v3 / LGA2011, should also be compatible with the LGA2066.
