It's a shame AMD increased the thickness of the heatspreader on the cpu die (see der8auer's "Ryzen 7000 Delidding - Unreal Temperature improvement with Direct-Die Cooling" video) to maintain cpu cooler compatibility.  It's a new platform and basically everything else will have to be replaced.  A 20 degree C temperature difference isn't worth that.

So far the EK-AIO Elite 360 D-RGB with a push-pull configuration seem to handle the temps of a 7950x using real world applications. It stays in the range of 37C-75C.

If gaming will really keep the CPU in the 95C range, I'll might consider a custom loop using the upcoming EK-Quantum Velocity² D-RGB - AM5 Water Block. This might just be the last nudge I need to switch to water cooling. (will test gaming when 4090 and 7900 XT will come out)

It won't matter much.  The bottleneck is the heat transfer from the chiplets to the IHS.  No amount of additional dissipation will help with that.

You could get a chiller and cool the liquid sub ambient.  That would help.  But then you'd have to battle condensation.

Yes, the heat spreader seems to be a design flaw. I can understand they don't want the chiplets crushing,  but to gain 20 degrees by de-lidding... couldn't a better thermal interface design be found?

I think they intentionally increased the thickness of the CPU heat spreader to limit it's performance. So, when the 2nd gen Ryzen 7000 CPUs are released. They'll have much thinner heat spreaders and will out-perform these first Gen Ryzen 7000 CPUs by a decent margin. 🤔🤔🤔

I doubt it. Either it was for compatibility or to leave room for 3D cache in future models or...

I wonder if these new 7 and 5 nm products are more sensitive to voltage degrading the silicon and causing issues. In that case limiting the voltages by letting the temperature rise and use that to keep voltages low when CPU is pushed hard, could be the reason. Would be easier to just lower the voltage, but then you would not hit those highest clockspeeds and there is a tough competition between AMD and Intel. I watched a YT vid about using the curve optimizer in BIOS. Minus ten was easy, and he ended up with minus 28, which dropped temps and watts a lot, but effect on practical performance was fairly small.

Greeting's from the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan! Been playing Blizzard's new "Diablo Immortal" since launch, just hit level #265 with my Necromancer. Best game of all the Diablo's!

I would love the opportunity to build on the new platform since I can't afford it outright. It looks promising in early reviews however the 95C thing is a little hard to want to allow. I guess most AMD processors will just run hot from now on...

Another month another chance, thank you! Are we going to get some options of X670 with DDR4, else it's going to be too many things to upgrade at once sheesh.

I've recently purchased a nice case that'd go perfectly along with this motherboard, good luck everyone!

 I've picked up Need for Speed Heat. So far I'm really enjoying the open world/map and racing. The story is pretty much the typical mediocre racing game story line. It's a good thing you can ignore it and enjoy the rest the game has to offer.

 

P.S. That's an awesome mobo!

@jamesc359 I guess I need to stop being stubborn. I saw Steam have Heat for $4, but its the principle for me to not support EA's shenanigans that kept me from buying it, lol.

This would be awesome. I have my 7700X and DDR5 memory already, but I was waiting for more motherboards to be available. Now I'm thinking about abandoning the whole build since I have so much $$ invested in my entire gaming LAN.  ugh

I fully expect that I shall not win, yet here I am again trying to beat the odds.  I do want to build a 7000 series gaming machine during the year-end holidays though.

As Albert Einstein said, "I could have done so much more with a Big Al's Computer!".

That makes 2 of us.  If the contest only had 2 competing, I would lose.

Lots of features on this motherboard, and it's good to see Asus is using the larger BIOS chips to allow for more forward compatibility. Go Red Team!

Recently, I've been perusing tech reviews about the AMD Ryzen 7000 series CPUs for my own interests and potential next build. I live in the warmer part of the United States, so the higher thermals got my attention even though these processors are designed to run at TJMax [95°C] 24/7 without risk of damage or deterioration. However, these CPUs do look impressive from what I've read so far. Thanks AMD for a chance to a TUF Gaming X670E-Plus-Wifi Motherboard! good luck all!

Awesome motherboard, thanks Asus and AMD!

Can't believe it's October already!  Maybe time for some spooky games, perhaps revisit the Dead Space trilogy before the new one comes out next year.

That motherboard is a BEAST! It'll be great having that thing sitting on the shelf ready to go once I can afford a 7000 series CPU!

What I'm after most is more budget-friendly options for a GPU other than taking my chances on the used market!

Performance over Pretty.

I hope the BIOS for 670 chipsets will be more stable than it was with 570 chipsets.

Very nice giveaway! Thanks for the chance at it. I have a CPU ready for a motherboard too! I'm not currently playing any games right now though. I'm busy fixing a leaking roof. Have a nice day everyone! I love AMD! You have outstanding products!

Wow!  You really went overboard on this one.

One NICE prize.  This really gets your heart going.

Hi! Long time hardware enthusiast, but finally decided to make a community account. Keep up the good work, and keep fighting the good fight. We consumers always look forward to more competition in the PC space, and what AMD has done to bring more competition in the CPU and GPU markets in the last 5 years is not unnoticed. 🙂

PS - Currently building a 4K gaming rig for my brother. As you probably have guessed, it will be an all AMD rig. Already have my eyes set on a few choice parts. Now just waiting for what RDNA 3 has to offer. Fingers crossed for a competitive product launch!

Badly in need to save cost for the upgrade. Good luck everyone 👍

Not sure I will jump on the 7000 series.  The high temps due to the poor transfer of heat to the IHS will likely be corrected in subsequent generations.  The motherboard can still be used for those though.

SUPER EXCITED for the future of Content Creation with AMD's latest releases and AV1 support!!

Lately, I've been enjoying Escape from Tarkov, trying to prepare myself for DMZ CoD MW2 coming up!

Love the motherboard as well! ASUS ❤️ Products are always the best ❤️

Hi! Not currently building a build. Currently replaying the Cyperpunk 2077 campaign! Thanks for the chance!
