AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPU's

Recommended Posts

FWIW, There's no way you're going to want to run a 3970x with a Noctua NH-U14S.

Even in push/pull (two fans), it's just not enough to dissipate 280w of heat (and especially not under any type of heavy load).

In fact, you don't want to run a NH-U14S with socket 2066 i9 CPUs (much lower TDP of 165w)... for the same reason.

Under load, you'd have thermal-throttling of the CPU... which kind of kills the whole point.

 

For the 3970x, I wouldn't consider anything less than a top-quality 360mm AIC.

 

When you're dealing with an active-cooled chipset (small high-RPM fan), to me that doesn't equate to "Whisper Quiet".

 

BTW, the 3950x (Ryzen 9) has much lower TDP of 105w.

It'll run just fine with the NH-U14S.

I haven't seen a single 10980xe actually in-stock anywhere in the US/Canada.

Here in EU they are available in small amounts.

I just started, but at least in Cuendo it seams that the 3970X is not that much better, like +35% or so.

Forgett Noctua, there is only one Option from Thermalright, that at least works, not Quiet but it works at least. I beleive its calssified at 320TDP.
