My setup has been pretty much rock solid from the time I booted it. The only time it goes down is when Windows updates auto reboots the PC. My comfortable everyday speeds are 3.5ghz with 275w TDP PBO.

Just comes down to expectations and proper research. However do not go TR if you are expecting super gains in overclocking. You will get gains...but nothing silly and if you do OC, expect to get a very good cooler, don't cheap out. I went custom WC but that is because I have 32 Cores pushing 4.1Ghz.
What temperatures do you end up seeing across the CPU at that speed? I've had my 32c/64t chip run at a max of about 3.7-3.8ghz with PBO TDP set to 400w before hitting the 68C PBO wall- under custom water as well. Would like to see what other people experience temps wise without the PBO temp limit and excessive Vcore while wc'd.
My TR 2950X (16c/32t) setup has also been stable from the moment I booted it - far more stable than most oc'ed Intel systems I have. I'm running on X399 Meg Creation with 4.3 GHz proc and 32GB / 3466 Quad Ram Sammy-B (3600 works, but @ looser timings). The dedicated CPU loop has dual 360x60 rads and temps have never been an issue, not least as this is not a 32c processor. Cinebench R15 at 4.3 GHz was about 285w.
Really glad I decided to pull the trigger on a super cheap 2920x ($370 on amazon right now) and an asrock x399M. It’s not even that much slower than the 3700x system I have too.
I wanted the extra PCIe lanes for dual GpUs and 2-3 nvme drives for a HE gaming rig .A 24core starting cpu sounds like its going to be a lower clocked chip more for the workstation crowd than what I’ll need it for. I’ll be holding out & hoping for a higher clocked , lower core
Count part it looks like. I’d be perfectly happy with 16-20.
You can run a stock TR 32 Core with standard automated boost on a high quality AIO/ High Quality air cooler. It will depend what you are doing and if you are doing something intensive, how long you are looking to do that intensive tasks. I think with an long term intensive task you will easily creep up to the ''Thermal Limit'' imposed by AMD which is 70c and possibly above. Not something to be too concerned about reaching the thermal limit, just not so great if you are over that limit for a prolonged period of time.
Most people decided to play it safe and just go straight to custom WC for these chips as you end up in the 100% safe zone, especially if you are not imposing a manual OC.
I myself top out at exactly 68-70c upon a prolonged rendering task with something like blender on a custom WC setup. I am at 4.1Ghz, all core OC at 1.4V.
