Be Quiet Shadow Rock TF2 + 140mm (the clips are a bit bent xD, the stock fan is an annoying 135mm...) Noctua 3000 RPM Industrial PPC @ 2500 RPM minimum. (hearing is for chumps).Anything cheap that displays a picture is more than enough I'd just turn it off at night and just use during the day when you are around just in case personally... I wouldn't want anything to happen to it regardless I'd consider something with a fan as passive are ok, but I always end up putting a fan in front of it so seems a little pointless to me lol
I was meaning to ask Ashley, what cooler do you use for your 3950X?
Love it, blasts air all onto my RAM, around the socket, VRM heatspreader + inductors & caps, etc. I run the 3950X with a modified PPT set in Ryzen Master, using PBO.
I have two settings that I'm flicking between with the touch of a button right now, that is 105 W PPT and 95 W PPT, in all-core load temps are < 70 C, in bursty work they bounce up to the mid 70s, but that's because the cores are allowed into higher P-states (4ghz+).
Temps are acceptable in all-core work at stock, below the 95C threshold, but I was more worried about my VRM and the sutained 146W Socket power. Also, in bursty workloads the chip was flirting with 80+. Perf/watt goes down drastically over 4 GHz on Zen2, so I'm absolutely happy with this set up. 3.8 all -core and 4.0-4.1 all-core in bursty @105W PPT, and 3.65 and 3.9 ish, respectively, @ 95W
