at some point you have to ask yourself if overclocking makes sense or not.

for many who OC it serves no other purpose (at all) beside bragging rights.

i mean i can gain 10% more performance in cinebench when overclocking (i have a 1920x).
but then i can´t use my noctua aircooler (well i could but the temps make me uncomfortable) and power consumption goes through the roof.

i payed 79 euro for the noctua u14s. for a 360 AIO i sure have to pay twice that.

keeping all the negative things into account... that´s absolutely nonsense for 10% more performance.

i use threadripper for content creation and every crash cost me money, so i think i will stick to stock speeds. it´s just not worth the hassle iyam.

temps, power consumption and cooling issues.... and all that for 10-15% more performance?

i mean people say OC is fror free.. ok.
but to be honest with the current HEDT cpus from AMD (and intel) it is NOT for free.

@Gothmoth
When you aren't benching, the temps will be a little lower. Besides, if you aren't making use of all 32threads, the cpu won't be getting that hot either. You could do a small OC and lower volts more than likely.

when i render all cores (24 in my case) are on 100% and for hours sometimes for 2+ days.
well now with threadripper 1 day.

i think i could overclock with the noctua cooler. but i doubt i would feel comfortable doing a 4 GHz overclock and have that system running a day under full load.

maybe i will try 3.8 GHz on all cores.
but i like to have my temps at ~62 degree celsius.

Im genuinely just at the limits of the silicone with mine - Ive played around a LOT and even checked in with OCUK (8pack) who says most of the retails are capping out at 3.8ghz - if you get one that hits 4 at decent temps on all cores youve found a cracker

Sadly my cracker has to go back to AMD

Do you at least get to keep the Engineering Sample for future motherboard reviews?

Wasn't sure if he meant the ES or the Retail

I will preface this by saying that I am an Intel fan through and through but...

I am SO happy that AMD have finally brought out a chip that, as far as I can tell, is really giving Intel a run for their money and forcing them to innovate and drive the industry forwards

When I first saw the new chips I thought "holy cow that's monstrous" and my hunch of it being a pita to keep cold also turned out to right. But still great to see AMD finally back in the game!

Re lack of cooling options, the failure might not be with AMD so I take that back, the turn around time on Threadripper from announcement to release has been shorter than I thought given no one outside of AMD knew about it till May this year, I am just impatient :-D
