Enermax TR4 II for 3960X

Hi guys,
What are the opinions on the Enermax TR4-II 360mm AiO at the moment, is it still as bad as the MK1? I currently have the X72 on my 3960X but the temperature is a bit on the high side (90-92*C in synthetics). I'm suspecting the small coldplate being the problem.

I've seen the Coolermaster TR4 AiO but it looks like it has the same fins as a normal AiO, just the copper plate is bigger.

It is as bad, apparently:

The best AIO's are made by Swiftech. High quality pumps (MCP50), Apogee XL blocks (as in the case of my H220-X) and a copper radiator. The latest edition has updated and improved waterblocks.

swiftech has no threadripper block that's sold preassembled with drive x3


the swiftech unit has pretty bad leak rate on the watercooling forum, it also requires maintenance after 6-12 months which for most people is too bothersome




I've had my unit for less than 6 months and seeing some kind of gunk or biomaterial build up

I've had mine for several years and no problem so far. Leaks are common with all watercooling setups, this is a risk we take when we choose water over regular heatsinks.

Just a small status update....since my Kraken X72 was really getting cooked by the 3960X with liquid temps going easily above 40*C and the CPU was just under the temp limit I took the plunge and ordered the Liqtech II 360 TR4 and a bottle of EK Cryofuel clear premix with the idea of draining and flushing the cooler the moment it arrives, and so I did.
Have to say that even out of the box the Enermax coolant is wrong, like completely wrong. It has the color of diluted pee and smells like a combination of burnt rubber, alcohol and a faint smell of rot, disgusting. No wonder these coolers fail catastrophically after a few months...

I've also swapped the fans for Noctua NF-A12x25's working in pull configuration.

Well, the cooling performance is nothing short of amazing......with around 19-20*C ambient my TR tops at 77*C with PBO and all 3 fans at 2000RPM (which is perfectly tolerable with the 12x25's).

I might be wrong but I don't think that EK's CryoFuel will play nice with the aluminium radiator in the Liqtech...

Why is that? It's just a clear coolant.
