Here is a good link to explain how it works.The problem is 68 is the max temp. The system lowers clock speeds to keep temps under 68. I shouldn't be throttling I don't think. Can anyone confirm? Be Quiet! claims I shouldn't be throttling with this cooler. I don't get it, It's hard to find good Data on thread ripper. Most tests I see people are not using PBO and just do manual overclocks or leave the system stock. If you manually overlclock does that lift the 68c barrier?
Sheesh man!! Those memory scores are out of this world!! So jealous!
Those are fantastic scores!!!
I'm running a Corsair AX1600i. It gets the job done.Thanks goldenleaf Btw, love those electric blue colors in your build...I find that blue mesmerizing :bigeyedsm I even have been known to stare at Christmas lights in that hue for hours
BTW, what kind of PSU are you running ? ...a 2990x with 32c/64t and those speeds must have a stout setup.

I have to make sure I up the VRM frequency and LLC to about 3 to make sure it doesn't crash. VCore was at 1.4V for the All-Core 4.2 GHz. Only thing was that it sounded like a jet engine. I'm going to run it with just PBO enabled.
I need help guys, I have yet to find the answer anywhere. I have a new build with a 2920X, x399 phantom gaming 6, Dark rock pro TR4 cooler.
CPU is thermal throttling( at 68c) Under load within 60 seconds. PBO is on.
I've re-applied paste and re-installed the cooler 3 times. On the 3rd try things seemed to get slightly better. I spread the paste lightly with a credit card. Still Thermal throttles though.
I used the paste supplied with the cooler, and tried noctua paste. No difference. I'm really at a loss here, this cooler is rated for a 250w TDP with the 24 and 32 core CPU's yet cannot handle my lowly 2920x.
I had a EVGA CLC280 on here before and it throttled too- I bought the Dark rock TR4 thinking it would solve my issues, but I notice almost no change.
I'm starting to think my CPU is defective. Could there be an issue with the CPU itself? Bad thermal compound under the IHS?
meaningless, management is in windowsAny chance we can get a modded bios 1.31 with some basic LED control - like on/off, set a color? Thanks!
unfortunately no newsAny news on a "new" beta or official BIOS? MSi webiste still has the 11-15-18 release date for the BIOS. Using the 1.31 beta bios (modded).
The heat exchanger plays a big role, you will not get adequate temperatures (minimum difference of 10-15 degrees, if you compare 115 and for example Liqtech 240 TR4)Does anybody have experience from Corsair H115i Platinum RGB, is the cold plate large enough for TR4?
I have 2950X and ROG Zenith Extreme currently cooled by NH-U14S TR4 push-pull.
I'm looking better alternative for custom loop as the machine is part of a production set that is relocated quite often. I know that Asetek AIO sets are not an option and Enermax TR4 AIO are good, but their availability is not great in my area.
Thanks from your replies in advance!

I caved in and put my 2080ti FTW3's under water. Now my loop looks like this: Dual D5 pumps -> 2990WX with XSPC TR4 block --> XSPC EX360 rad ----> 1080 Phobia Nova ----> 2080ti's ---> XSPC RX360 -----> back to rez.Thanks for the info ...impressive results on the 2990WX and its cooling.
I am not the right guy to give advice about adding extra rads, though ...my 2950x has dual XSPC 360 rads and dual MPC 655 pumps, and I am just leak testing the setup for dual Giga Aorus 2080 Ti WB which consists of a further three XSPC 360 rads and two more MPC 655...'in my defense', we had all the water-cooling equipment (with the exception of the Heatkiller IV TR4 block for the CPU) laying around doing nothing in the store room for years... Personally, I figure you can never have enough cooling
