*CPU.

Έλα ρε πατρίδα, σκισ' το ρημάδι!
And if that all Greek to you, well it really is Greek . Now waiting on products that can do that with water cooling...

Thumbs down Strange how Intel has the overclock title for 10 cores...

Considering they're the only one putting out a ten core part currently. Very pointless to even bother reporting this.

Your first post and you are so negative.

This actually gives a lot of information to anyone who wants to buy. Comparing it to previous generation of CPUs you can know how much better or worse this one is.

LN2 benching is so pointless.

It would be a more interesting read if the CPU had set an OC record for air or water cooling, something anyone with a PC can do.

^ that. Whilst LN2 may be fun for the guys who play with it it's completely pointless and a little useless to us.

I've been hearing that these top out at around 4.6ghz on standard cooling. Any more and the CPU either gets red hot or the VRMs start to throttle on the board. So not only do you need water but you need full water to really let it stretch its legs.

Having seen that Threadripper 16 core hit 3000 points in Cinebench yesterday for $999 I think I know where I will be headed if I ever decide to go extreme again. Which I doubt I will do, because the 3970x turned into a nightmare.

Have anyone found some "real" tests With a good loop and vrm watercooling?
If your buy a 999$ CPU, chances are you have the money to do it right.
A review on a AIO is maybe fine for shaming the product, but what can you get if you use the extra for a multi rad watercooling. Its out of my league either way, it would just be nice to see whats possible.
Gamersnexus have but an AIO on his Vega FE = Actually not that bad performance.

AIOs perform just as good as real water cooling up to a point. For example, I water cooled my Fury X with a slightly larger rad than the AIO and the temps are slightly better. Note, slightly. Maybe about 5c. This is why I will, where I can, slap AIOs onto whatever I can. Simply because they are cheap, mess free and never need filling up or messing with.

However, once you get to a point where you have multiple rads and a large res? yeah, then you see a difference.

Board blocks are so expensive tbh. Mainly because they do the CPU and board itself, but I rarely see them being used by anything but the rich. Mainly because once that board gets old and poo you can't use the block on anything else. Shame really.
