Mini dtx 3950X build.

My brother plans to buy the 16 core Ryzen and the Asus X570 DTX motherboard. 

My question is will it be ok only being cooled by an 240mm aio liquid cooler, since my brother plans to use a H400 for its case. Or should he go for the Noctua twin towered air cooler.

The R9 3950X is only coming to the market on September so you have a long waiting to do yet... Should probably ask again in a couple of months when we have a better understanding of these processors from the lesser SKUs at least.

The 16 core is being used for what though? Most likely the 6 or 8 core chips will get the job done for your brother. Spending $750 just to show off is stupidity, so...the 3600 or 3700x would probably make more sense for 99% of people.

yeah I dont like guesses when it comes to spending money logically. Besides it could be limited by cooling, not because of your cooler choice but the thermal density. We'll only know about that with actual testing, since 2700X couldnt push anywhere near enough heat to saturate the IHS nor have the cores offset to one side of the CPU.

Tell your brother that a 64 core threadripper is coming out and he NEEDS it.

I don't think he'll go for the "ThreadRipper" variant, he could have gone with the 2nd generation ThreadRipper but he like playing with mainstream parts so he waited for Ryzen 3000. And I think the super computer at MIT smokes the threadripper or any of Intel's variants. He just likes playing with his toys.

It was a joke. -.-

A 240mm aio should be fine for stock or mild overclock.

If he is spending $750 on the cpu, he might want to consider better cooling though.
