@Rossix71 - I to love all my Ryzen CPUs, aside from a few running warmer than I'd like even at stock (more down to the cooler and location of them I think) I can't really fault them.. They don't crunch 24/7, but around 10 hours a day.. Without solar panels here, I'd never be able to afford to run the kit that I run here for WCG and FAH and Rosetta. I'd be broke within a few months!

That said the star of all of that is the 3900X, runs cool considering it's under air and still peaks at a good speed. Even whilst crunching and gaming across triple panels, this thing just keeps on going :) My only regret is that I never went with the 3950X instead if I'm honest..

Thanks guys for your input. I know this for sure the next builds I do will be all AMD and slowly phase out my 8 year old I7s. That 3600 looks a good candidate for the replacement lol...

Sounds like a good call. My old 1600 that just retired put out an average of about 7,300-7,500 ppd, which wasn't too bad. Can only think that the 3600 would see a nice little boost from that.

Anybody running a 3600 or 3600x?

Looks like a hurricane is coming. I may go offline during that time, especially since there will be some family with us. Don't be surprised if my output drops off.

As long as we don't lose power, I'll strike it back up after the storm has passed.

Stay safe, don't worry a thing about crunching!!

Got another 3900x coming this week. Got a pretty good deal on a used one. Also got a good deal on a Gigabyte X570 Aorus Ultra and a Optimus water block. This will be the first time using a Gigabyte motherboard...

Curious to see how that block does for you. Everyone seems to think it's the greatest ever, but I'm skeptical. Way too much $$$ for a few degrees difference.

I have the Alphacool XPX Aurora. It performs well, looks good, and is about $50 less.

I am curious as well. Sadly I will only have it connected to a EK CoolStream PE 240 and not a 360. The second one I had wasn't stored right and became pretty gunked up. Tried to get it cleaned out, but I eventually just tossed it instead of worrying about it in a loop.
We will see how well the 240 rad cools this CPU compared to my other one...

Just waiting on 2 Fans and MB, then it's build time. Hopefully they will arrive late next week. I will post pictures of the build when it's all coming together.

I'm excited to see how well the 3700x, 65W, does versus the 2700's, 65W that I have now!

Plus, building out a new computer, with led lights, ram, heatsink and the NZXT H510, is fun!! Building my 2700's, one in a Seasonic, the other in the H510...
The NZXT case is awesome. The Seasonic is a good case but, doesn't compare.

I do like the, Seasonic KL06, inverted MB and the reverse case layout. Also, it has a MB tray that is removable. So, good case but not as cable friendly and has a plastic window. I like it but, the H510 wins.

I decommissioning my 2700Xs partly due to the summer heat, party due to the poor performance, even my 12 year old Intel at lower speed does better on OPN. MIP has been out for long due to the huge memory use. Well winter will return, just hope that job will as well.

Anyone get affected by the hurricane? Looks like some good rains shot all the way up into NY, MA, and beyond.

I found one user on TPU that has one

pretty dam respectable numbers his single rig is kickn my 3 i7s in the face lol

Anyone remember the Thermaltake Big Typhoon? I wonder how well it would do at cooling a Ryzen chip like the 3700x. From what I can tell, simply ensuring the chips stay cool is the best way to get all the performance out of them.

I think the stock amd cooler should be a little better than the tt Big typhoon .. especially with the TDPs of Ryzens now.

But for what its worth the hyper 212 seems decent enough even though its an older cooler.

Yes indeed, those numbers are awesome. I'm quite shocked how much that cpu can output considering my 1600x was waaay lower, as in 50% of that ppd. Thank you for finding and sharing.

@hat , I love "C" coolers, or at least the idea, and I have a Kabuto 3 on my 1700. But I will be honest and tell you that it doesn't do as good of a job as the Fuma RevB that it replaced. IIRC, it's about 5 degrees warmer. As far as I can tell, none of the "C" coolers match the tower coolers, and I've had a few. Absolutely love the idea for a system running 24/7 getting that additional airflow across the VRMs.
