Will the Noctua NH-U12S be fine for the ryzen 3900x?

i will soon upgrade to ryzen soon and currently am using the Noctua NH-U12S in my current setup. I want to keep on using this cooler when i move to ryzen. I have tried to check online for info on this cooler but as i have not found much at all, so i am asking here. My pc will have 8 fans in total when in use.

thanks for any help!

According to Noctua, yes, it is, but you won't have enough cooling capability to maintain Turbo speeds as long, therefore will experience reduced performance.
