Re: what is the best cooler for rizen threadripper 2950X

pcpete, I agree an AIO water cooler is best for these larger processors.  I suggest you make sure that the cold plate completely covers all the chips in the module.  The older ones do not, so ask Corsair about the H115i.  One of my main attractions to the EnerMax cooler was the complete coverage on day one of Threadripper.  Here are my specifications:

MSI X399 Creation, Threadripper 2990WX, 3xSamsung SSD 970 EVO RAID0, 4xSSD 960 EVO on

MSI AeroXpander RAID10, 1TB & 500 GB WD Black, G.SKILL Flare X F4-3200C14Q-32GFX,

Windows 10 x64 Pro, EnerMax-MaxTytan-EDT1250EWT, Enermx Liqtech TR4 280 CPU Cooler,

Radeon RX580, UEFI E7B92AMS.120, AGESA SummitPI-SP3r2-1.1.0.2.

I have a really large full tower (old NZXT PHAN-001RD, probably no longer available).  Enjoy, John.

Here is AMD's Recommended CPU Coolers for Ryzen Threadripper CPU/APUs: Thermal Solutions for Ryzen™ Threadripper™ Processors | AMD 

By the way, many of these CPU coolers you need to contact the manufacturer and they will send you, normally, a free kit to make the CPU Cooler compatible to install on a Threadripper CPU. But if it is advertised to fit Threadrippers than it should have the kit included when your purchase the CPU Cooler. If not, the Manufacturer will send you one, normally free of charge.

hi

I have just built a AMD 2950 threadripper based computer, 

I had trouble with coolers first purchasing a corsair water cooled unit but unfortunately although it said it was compatible it did not come with a compatible adapter bracket and the bracket that is supplied with the actual threadripper CPU did not fit ? 

I then sought further advice and exchanged the corsair unit for a NZXT X52 and the AMD supplied bracket did fit and it is working perfectly and does a good job.

Also when you have built your threadripper computer go to AMD risen web site and download and install the AMD Rizen -Master free software it is an excellent piece of software to monitor your computer including the cooling

Hope this helps

As pre-announced, AMD has begun selling its latest Ryzen Threadripper 2950X processor. The new CPU features 16 cores and is aimed at high-end desktops that can be overclocked for additional performance UPSers.

Re: what is the best cooler for rizen threadripper 2950X

I have a 1950x at first I had a ASROCK Fatil1ty Professional Gaming motherboard and used the Alphacool Eishbaer 420 cooler with good results./ Depending on what your case will hold, they now have one called Alphacool Eisbaer Extreme. I know the cold plate fit the CPU well for an AIO. I have since gone to a custom loop with two large radiators with a Heatkiller IV Pro cold plate. To overclock a 16 core CPU cooling is the main objective. The bigger the rads.(copper only) with an appropriate reservoir and pump changes everything. I can get 4.2 ghz on all cores with 85% load and stay under 70 degrees.
