I was building a system for a friend he does a lot of video work , rendering and things like that it was an 1950x AMD threadRipper it is a monster but he was looking to overclock it is a full water cooling system and can get 3.8 across all cores with 3200 RAM speed it make an absolute god awful amount of heat , it is the first time I ever had the worry about the motherboard socket getting too warm it is actually ridiculously warm to the touch and to be perfectly honest even running system like this long term I honestly have no idea what it's going to do to the motherboard the heat it is putting out it's just crazy I did understand going into list that the heat would be a problem but it took me by surprise big time

maybe an air cooler that cools more of the surrounding socket is a better choice.

i am not a big watercooling fan to be honest.
if i have the choice i go with air cooling every day.

noise at idle and reliability (as experienced by friends) kept me away from watercooling.

noctuas nh-d15 has given me no reason to buy into watercooling in the past.

I've ordered an 1950x, Zenith Extreme and an EK threadripper.
When they are delivered I can test them.
I'm guessing I shouldn't have issues cooling it as I've 3 60mm thick rads 1 480mm and 2 360mm rads so I will try for a decent overclock and report back.
I am hoping to use this to replace my Ryzen 1800x rig and 5820k rig as should have more cores than both together .

If its just the cpu after one rad it wont make a great deal of difference

Still dont need that many rads dude. If its filling the case fine but just make sure its tidy and the hose is kept very clean

One rad is not enough, especially for a dual GPU system. Don't know why you keeping banging that drum Tom. I love ya guv, but you're so wrong on that one. Multiple rads makes a HUGE difference to liquid temps.

Multiple yes - but not that many!

I used to run a pair of GPU's, cpu and board on one thick and one thin 360 with the fans at a constant 500rpm

Were you aware of your liquid temps? With my previous rig (x79 / dual 980s), 2 rads is nowhere near enough. I have a slim 420 and a slim 360 in that rig, and liquid temps are still too warm for my liking unless I crank up the fans. Rad space counts.

Liquid no (sensors mean clutter) but the CPU max was 70 and the GPU's never saw 50
