I have a 7920X, not delidded yet as there aren't any tools available AFAIK.

Also, are there any plans on a monoblock for the OCF or Taichi?



X299 OC formula has great mosfet heat-sink . If you are extreme aircooling addict . i will suggest to replace .

CPU can be stressed like 100watts more than Taichi .

Hi Nickshih,
i will oc my delidded 7900X with aircooling only (Noctua D15S, 2x 140mm fans from noctuas industrial series) . Which board will be the proper one, the Asrock Formula or the Asus Rampage Apex. It seems, that the Formula has the better mofset heatsink solution ?

C'mon really? You are asking ASRock hardware rep which board is better ASRock vs Asus. What do you think his response is going to be?

FYI the OC Formula will handle air cooled 7900x without breaking a sweat.

The VRM heatsink isn't going to matter on either motherboard. My NH-D15S just barely manages to keep my 7820X within operating range at 4.8 GHz, and the VRMs at that clock speed (on an X299 OC Formula) are perfectly cool. You're not going to be able to push the 7900X hard enough to have to care with an NH-D15, honestly - you need a large radiator to do that.

I dare to say that the new HEDT CPU's are unsuitable for aircooling anymore...the D15 is one of the best (if not THE best) air cooler available and even though it struggles with 200W+ of CPU power.
High performance 280/360mm AIO or custom loop seems to be the thing.

Core i9 9900K @ 5.2 || EVGA Z390 DARK || 2x8GB G.Skill TridentZ RGB 4600 C18 @ 4266 C17 || GPU: EVGA Kingpin RTX2080Ti @ 2130MHz || Samsung 970PRO 1TB + 860EVO 2TB || Lian Li O11 Dynamic White || Corsair AX1600i || Screen: LG B8 OLED 55 and LG 34GK950F
Corsair H150i PRO + Noctua NF-A12x25

That's not entirely accurate. My NH-D15 is handling up to 275W without any real issue, but going above 300W or so, ambient temperatures become an issue. I doubt most CLCs are going to handle that kind of heat much better - maybe some ideal samples of 280mm or 360mm radiators, but the standard 240mm radiators are unlikely to work out.

EDIT: To be clear, I have an i7-7820X running at 4.8 GHz/1.25V on an NH-D15S. With cache at 3.2 GHz and the IMC at 2.0 GHz, it stays under 95°C and peaks at about 275W.

280mm AIOs should generally outperform the NH-D15, but watercooling isn't magic. A huge advantage with radiators is that they can pull cool air from directly outside the case. I'd expect that a 280mm radiator acting as an exhaust would likely not show any meaningful difference from an NH-D15.

Many thanks for the answers smile.gif
Extreme OC is not my intention but with the noctua i will try to get the 7900x above 4,5ghz without (heat) trouble, If its possible with the Formula i will be happy.

@bigblock990
you re right, my question was a little bit suboptimal - Sorry Nick for that !
