Hi, I'm planing on replacing my very old PC with a new Ryzen 3900x setup and I was wondering if it's worth modding an old CPU cooler. I have a CNC machine, so I can easily create an adapter for AM4 for almost free, but I wanna know how the performance would be against modern solutions.
The thing is, I'm not planning on overclocking the new pc (nowadays solutions has way more power that what I need), but I would like to have a very quiet PC, so the more efficient, the lower the fan speed I can put and the less noise I would get. I just wanna know if this will be able to handle a Ryzen 3900x at full load with all the fans at the lower possible setting or I should just buy a newer solution.
I used to run one of those! ran it on a Q6600 for a bit and then moved it to a 960T
if you don't need to spend any money to make it work then go for it, worse case scenario it's not good enough and you need to buy something. I wouldn't put any significant money into making it work though.
Eh....it's a cool use of time if you enjoy doing things like this. Personally, I wouldn't put in the effort on a GeminII. Before you do, make sure there is enough contact plate to cover what you need to on a Ryzen, and that you can place it properly to do so.
Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....
