skupples someone used to make a twin-V look alike cooler. that's definitely the weirdest i've ever seen. CompUSA always had them in stock.

Playapplepie That thing is definitely funky looking. Though oddly enough it's not the weirdest I've seen. The most weird cooler I've seen was when a buddy of mine built a spare machine and for some reason used a can of soda, still full, as the heat sink. He would lay the rig down flat and set the can on top of the chip with a layer of thermal goop. It was as efficient as you'd expect. IIRC the idle temp was like 66 degrees C lol.

Biggest problem is it's almost impossible to replace their fans .. and my 1st / olders coolers now being 13+ years old have had fans replace twice.

It seems he leaves it on a desk somewhere in his room, so I naturally thought he would be using Refrigerated Air Conditioning to enable the room temp to drop down to 18C throughout the day and night.

That would go partially in keeping those super high temps in check, from this latest 3900x design.

Zalman TNN 500AF is one that actually made it into production and sales.

Sorry, but I hate video reviews. I tried to skim through it for the good stuff .. didn't see any. Lots of babble and very little actual data.


Indeed, or use a current low wattage CPU.
Silent HTPC or silent workstation from Thermalright or Zalman would have been nice. But we got Mac Pros instead.


3900X 65W TDP mode (3900 non-X model) using 88W total package power (PPT), 60A TDC (thermal current), 90A EDC (electrical current). But then again I have learned to never under estimate teletubbies techtubers.
1.40 fixed voltage is what they are showing their viewers for 7nm CPU overclocking.


Paul's hardware & Bitwit made fun of Biostar for releasing the first Ryzen mini-ITX board because Biostar used the X370 chipset. It didn't matter to them that it was a $109 board and actually not bad.
They later did another video where they actually had the product at hand and tested it. Surprise it wasn't bad. Unlike those two youtubers.


@Ramzinho stop watching youtube and be more active on OCN. We good cookies.

why only put 1 when a Tisis fits 3x140mm fans


also...something like a concept like Zalman TNN 500AF could serve as a giant cooler for a TEC then use the cold side to cool a 240mm rad
