3950x upgrade

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm upgrading from a 2700X and was wondering could i get away with using an air cooler like a black edition 212 evo i currently use to cool a 3950X at stock speeds i dont overclock? I also want to avoid liquid coolers. Thanks!

No. You will thermal throttle.


Our Grace. The Feathered One. He shows us the way. His bob is majestic and shows us the path. Follow unto his guidance and His example. He knows the one true path. Our Saviour. Our Grace. Our Father Birb has taught us with His humble heart and gentle wing the way of the bob. Let us show Him our reverence and follow in His example. The True Path of the Feathered One. ~ Dimboble-dubabob III

If you're wanting to drop $700 on a CPU, you better be prepared to spend some money on cooling it.
