Im not listening heavy metal music...But if we are talking about heavy metal processors, it is different story for me. And Yes, I applaud to AMD! Second year of great CPUs is here and HEDT AMD is real - highend crazy strongest most loved CPU ever!

Report from TMsHW about Manilla AMD day and few results of Cinebenchs! LN2? YES sir!



Macci is AMD guy many years. I remember him from Phenom Agena days there, if Im correct.


Who is this guy?:)



What about Cinebench?! At COmputex Intel demostrated huge chip with 28-core, sample of future Cascade Lake-X. The board was bigger than eATX with crazy VRM. CPU must be cooled by chiller and power consumption was still over 800W. But nice clean 5 GHz.
Threadripper LN2 demo with normal eATX board cooled by LN2 and 5.1 GHz run.

This is news to me.
All reviews say that legacy mode gives better gaming performance and because my target is optimization, not overclock, I was convinced that disabling three node and undervolting the chip ( 100mV) could help.
Is it not the case?

Thank you for the detailed answer.
Actually I am wondering if I can optimise the setup, undervolting it, not boosting it.
When gaming I would use 8 cores only, (one node only), and for productivity I would let PBO off.
Are you saying that with only 8 cores active this monster would draw power as it was 32?
No 8 cores won't draw that much power as 32. Ryzen Master should allow you to set it to Game Mode that will do just that, or DownCore Control in the BIOS.

J7SC made a good point about a fan for the VRMs, you definitely want to do that too. My old SLI Plus came with fan brackets and I didn't realize it until I got a MEG Creation so I use them on this board.

While I have some AIOs for light-duty use, for TRs and such, I prefer custom loops. That said, I would consider keeping the Enermax which is actually very good, other than the decaying liquid itself. You can easily flush and refill it yourself, ie. with Mayhems XL or the like. Here's a vid on how to do that.

FYI, you could also add 3 extra fans (for a total of 6 in push / pull) to that or other AIOs, subject to your case / available space.

Such as Noctua? I have also but prefer AIOs because I change things very often.
Sure this time would be different because even AIOs seems pretty exclusive for TR4, as I do not trust adaptations with cold plates that do not entirely cover cpu dies. Call me paranoid.
