Frozr Heatsink: designed with the patented fan and double ball bearings to provide best performance for enthusiast games and prosumers.
Great for video editing in DaVinci Resolve or Premiere Pro. I've noticed a good performance boost when using it to create motion graphics inside the Fusion tab of Resolve, much faster than the Intel i9 9920x I was using. It also renders out projects very fast which is great in case I need to go back and render something out again. My first AMD processor and I couldn't be happier. The only thing to look out for is the heat this thing generates, using a Noctua NH-U14S, but it's not the recommended fan cooler for this CPU. The only coolers on the recommended list for this CPU are liquid coolers to my knowledge (as of 2/22/2020). Excellent CPU, worth the $$$ and switch to AMD.User says:
Praise AMD for this jewel. Does not even need liquid cooling (I use a Noctua 140mm fan). Note that this is not a gamer CPU, and it is optimized for multithreaded professional applications. If you are a gamer, go for cheaper models because you don’t need so many CPU cores.User says:
I Got this last week. I own a threadripper 3970x But. that is more costly then this one so I decided to buy this for my second threaddripper build. I used the same Asus mother board. I used the same be quiet air cooled cpu cooler. I went with the same 500gb Aorus nvme 2 ssd. I used a corsair rm850x psu and 8 sticks of hyperx 16gb ram for a total of 128gb ram. I mine with this machine Xmr/monero this machine cost me a lot less then my 3970x build. Which is same motherboard ,same cooler, same nvme ssd. I am happy with this after 10-14 days of running it is nice. this machine does 21-22k hash rate the more expensive machine does 27-28k hash rate. this build. was 35% cheaper. and I get 25% less hash not 35% less so this has more value.User says:
I was debating between this and the 36 core model, and I'm glad I went with this one. My other components are 128gb of ram, Two 1tb NVMe 4.0 drives, 2080it... I use a LOT of the Adobe Suite, and for video editing, the Adobe CC suite isn't quite coded to fully utilize a build like this. Right now I've done a lot of editing and rendering and here is my experience: -Adobe After Effects: can not utilize these many cores. I'm sure the next release will, but right now if I render a video or even during editing, I'm at most 38percent processor utilization. According to what I can find on Adobe's site, it maxes out at 16 cores. - Adobe Rush - Utilizes all cores, but even with multiple layers on a 4k 60 min video file, 72% processor utilization -Adobe Premiere - Same as Rush, but on a few renders I've been able to get up to high 80s on utilization. I don't regret the build, but at the moment, Adobe needs to do a lot of work on their software to start to utilize these processors. That being said... I can render something, and continue using my computer as if nothing is going on in the background, and that is incredible. My plan is to use this smaller core build, and then as Adobe steps up their game, and windows steps up their processor utilization game, then I'll upgrade to the larger core and not need to replace any other components. -User says:
Great CPU for gaming, excellent for productivity or work, value is great, performance is better in Intel, "arguably", but you don't have to sell your first born to get it. Intel needs to step up to catch these guys now.User says:
A beast of a CPU, get it liquid cooled for overclocking and minimum 1000W PSU if you planning to run multi GPU configuration with it.User says:
Man is this thing a beast! I come from an Intel 3930k, i mainly use software like 3ds Max, Vray, AutoCAD. This thing is amazing, it is rendering more than 5x faster than my older workstation. Compared to Intel in price, I am more than fine investing on this processor.User says:
A bit pricy, but at the end of the day, you get what you pay for. It is hot. I use an EVGA 360mm cooler. Which keeps it between 45 and 50C at idle, but under 100% all core stress, the temp limit of 95C is hit. Not sure if that's because there is not enough capacity in the cooler, or the paste isn't sufficient, or the heat sink isn't a good match for the size of the CPU. Not a fault of AMD, but something to consider when purchasing.User says:
Using this chip in an all-purpose rig: software development, gaming, virtualization, ...and this chip handles all of it without breaking a sweat. Relatively great value compared to the i9-10980XE when taking the motherboard, CPU, RAM, and cooler into account.User says:
Insane. More than I’ll ever need. Love the way they have you insert these CPUs. Little chance of bending pins. I run mine at 1/2 max clock speed when I’m not gaming because there is just no need to use the electricity when you are running Word. Lol Sill, @ 2GHz it’s amazing.
