I purchased a Ryzen 9 3900x that came with the Wraith Prism LED Cooler. I will be doing a lot of graphics, 3D rendering and animations. Before I put this together, I need to know if I need to upgrade the cooler or is this fan sufficient. Thanks
The stock cooler is sufficient, but the cooler the chip is the higher and longer it can boost, so I would definitely invest in an aftermarket cooker. Personally I would go closed loop liquid like the Corsair H115i or H150 since you will be using all of the cores for an extended period of time.
Thanks for your answer. I am looking at those now. I am leaning towards the Corsair H115i. I have often worried of leaks from the liquid CPU coolers, but have not heard of any issues recently. So, I may give this one a go.
These days full on leaks from CLLC's are rare, and Corsair's warranty covers damages caused by leaks, hence my affinity for them.
I use the Wraith Prism and it seems to be respectable. I use Arctic MX-4 which is more effective and my CPU is cool as a proverbial cucumber,
