    212 evo and freezer 13? will those two even be enough with out overclocking ? oO

    Not necessarily, Most of the size is due to the large number of pins. The actual Die area is relatively small.

    Its interesting that theyd use gold as a coefficient of thermal expansion mismatch buffer and indium tin solder on blanks that produce no heat, so the package should be REALLY stable like a fully functional Epyc. Guess the gold costs less than validating a different heat spreader.

    why?

    the cores are soldered, not just thermal paste, so that already gives much better transfer than most intels will do.
    besides that, dies have a HS for a reason. it helps getting heat away from the cpu, so there is not gonna be a big difference WHERE it covers the HS, but how LARGE the area is.

    now compare the spreader of the hot intel's with that of TR, which has a lower TDP as well.

    so if intel can cool a hotter cpu with a smaller HS than TR, i assume, without any oc, any decent heatsink will work (that can cope with the TDP).

    TR has a higher TDP (180W vs 140W), or which specs have you been reading? :)

    forgot "vs an oc intel", which can still be cooled with a decent quality cooler.

    hence a stock clocked TR should be fine, even if the base doesnt cover the whole HS.

    Looks lovely!

    I did find it strange given that the H100v2 supports it, yet the S24 didn't. I didn't check the circular H100 plate but it looks the same size?

    Liquid Cooling

    At this point processors aren't coming out with tested and approved fan based heat sinks because the speed just requires liquid cooling out of the box. Especially if you plan on over clocking this processor.

    You seem to be very black and white when it comes to this situation. Basically, "If the CPU cooler doesn't cover the WHOLE heatshield, it won't work!"

    But, you do know that is very much incorrect? Obviously a CPU cooler that makes contact in every possible point is the most ideal, but it has NEVER been a REQUIREMENT.

    Only time will tell how well a smaller surface area heatsink will do, but i'd wager just fine, unless you plan to OC.

    Except, you don't know that...do you? You just expect it to be true, and make statements to say you are correct. Until there's comparisons that show the difference between full coverage and partial coverage, what's the point in making statements like you have been?

    While your post is a bit older than mine Newegg reviews are now **singing their praises for this processor cooler; besides, liquid coolers require a strong level of expertise and are the required domain of hard-core enthusiasts, and maintenance is quite expensive in comparison to boot!...My only problem is the wretched beige and brown color as my new build will be black-based.

    It's not speed, it's TDP that determines this. On Ryzen AM4, and even a number of i5's and i7's that are under 100w only need a decent air cooler for a modest overclock. I mean you have say 140w cpus, those are going to generate a lot of heat and do require beefy coolers(AIO kits, and custom loops included in this) for a decent overclock. But I would say a Cooler master 212 would be enough for stock Threadripper.

    There's a big difference, common sense says there would be anyways.

    No point in arguing against reasonable thinking..

    Plain and simple, buy a cooler that is designed for ryzens increased die size.

    I saw the GN video as well. Very interesting.

    I also had doubts about coolers that didn't cover the entire IHS, which is why I got the Supremacy Evo Threadripper Edition. Seems to provide decent cooling.
