Someone on reddit mentioned it may be due to the fact that most of the cooler designs focus cooling on the center of the plate and due to the chiplet design of the 3900x being offset they don't effectively cool the chiplets. It seems like there may be quite a few coolers that are affected. I am wondering if there may be some new AIO and air cooler designs coming out that will get cooling over the entire chip or if there are any currently out there that are better at cooling across the plate than others. Thoughts?
It is more than likely in mid-summer the real issue is high ambient temeratures. I have very high ambients in the sunroom where my computer with the 3900X is located. Even my old 2700X would hit above 90 Celcius after 10am in the morning until 7 pm in the evening. That is with 2 air conditioners running it still hit just above 90 degrees Farenheit in the room. I have the Eisbaer EXtreme 280 which is an extreme;ly powerful liquid cooler.
