    Nice review, but it is missing Noctua U14S two fan push-pull test.
    My guess is that TR OC@4.0Ghz temps would be under 80 Degrees C.

    Hilbert, is there any chance to add U14S push-pull performance results to review?
    Tnx.

    I was thinking the same thing, DaSick and Hilbert. I'm not sure about below 80 degrees, but they'd be close to that.

    While these threadripper Noctua coolers aren't bad, what I don't understand is why they didn't just take the NH-D14 or NH-D15 CPU cooler & modify the contact plate for threadripper - those 2 coolers are a lot beefier than the ones in this article, and being twin tower are also more efficient. Considering threadripper can chew through a significant amount of Watts I really don't know why they didn't adapt the monstrous NH-D14/NH-D15!

    I would agree there with adapting NH-D15 or NH-D14 for TR socket,maybe they'll release these coolers for TR but if its not needed, I would assume they're done few in house tests with NH-D15 or D14

    I have run NH-D15 on 5820k with 4.5Ghz or 4.6Ghz and no issues,then tried NH-D15 on my 5960x with 4.5Ghz or 4.6Ghz OC and still temperatures are very good and very similar to the my custom water loop, temperatures are higher by 4-5°C on PKG in OCCT than on my custom water loop

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    Why do I see 1.440v core voltage on CPU-Z then?

    Oh yeah, just checked what you were referring to - yep CPUz stating 1.44V instead of the 1.38V quoted in the article text & graphs. I wonder if the other coolers in the comparison graphs were tested at 1.44V too, because otherwise it would not be a fair test if the CPU was at different voltages for different coolers. Hopefully Hilbert can comment on your observation.
