    Posted: 11 Feb 2020 at 11:41pm
Hi guys.  I'm getting mixed input regarding whether this cooler is enough for my threadripper 3970x system. It will NOT be overclocked but I am getting it for 3ds Max so it will be rendering for long periods of time (like a week straight).  I will install 128GB 3200 RAM when it arrives. The nice people at CP say its plenty for rendering 24/7.  Some people elsewhere say it's not. According to the CP builder site it's the only cooler on the list that will fit the case but according to the specs on the case website, all sorts of large coolers will fit the case, top and front even.   http://www.phanteks.com/Enthoo-Luxe-TemperedGlass.html
This is a lot of money for me so I don't want to make a costly mistake.

Here's my specs:
CAS: Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Full Tower Gaming Case W/ Full-size Tempered Glass Panel Window + RGB 10 Color LED Light Strip (Anthracite Gray)

CD: LG 16X Internal Blu-ray Burner, BD-RE, 3D Playback DVD+RW Combo Drive (Black Color)
CPU: AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper 3970X 3.7GHz [4.5GHz Turbo] 32Core 64Threads 144MB L3 Cache 280W Processor

CS_FAN: 3X 120mm Thermaltake Riing 12 Series High Static Pressure 120mm Case/Radiator Fan [+39] (Blue Color LED)

FAN: Asetek 570LC 120mm (Fatboy) Liquid CPU Cooling System w/ Copper Cold Plate (2x CyberPowerPC 120mm Dual Light Loop ARGB 1200RPM Fans w/ Hub + Remote (Push-Pull) [+16])

HDD: 1TB SAMSUNG 970 EVO Plus PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD - Seq R/W: Up to 3500/3300 MB/s, Rnd R/W up to 600/550k [+137] (Single Drive)
HDD2: 1TB WD Blue Series SATA-III 6 GB/s SSD - Seq R/W: Up to 545/525 MB/s, Rnd R/W up to 100/80k [+6] (Single Drive)

MEMORY: 16GB (8GBx2) DDR4/3200MHz Dual Channel Memory [-64] (Performance Memory by Major Brands)
I will swap it out with 128GB 4X32GB when it arrives 3200MHz

MOTHERBOARD: ASUS Prime TRX40-Pro ATX w/ RGB, Intel LAN, 3 PCIe x16, 1 PCIe x1, 8 SATA3, 3 M.2 SATA/PCIe [+51]

VIDEO: GeForce RTX™ 2080 Ti 11GB GDDR6 (Turing) [VR Ready] (Single Card)

Anyone know?
Here is what another person said "this cooler will be super inadequate. 1st, the cold plate of the cooler doesn't cover the whole heat spreader of the CPU. And 2nd, it is only 120mm radiator so extremely small cooling surface area. Only consider coolers that cover the whole heat spreader of the CPU, because the cores in Threadripper are spread out and not in the exact center of the chip as most CPUs."

I don't know much about this but I know I don't want cooling issues while rendering

Thank you for sharing.  I realize it's not a gaming processor and probably most on here are gamers.
Anyone have any input?

You gonna need a Cooler Master case from the list as well.

Thank you crawler.  That massive air cooler looks impressive though some are saying it's hard to install.  I read that for computers that will be doing long rendering that liquid cooling is preferred.  I don't know. 
I looked at the article about the i9 and threadripper too.  Looks like i9 has some advantages and I orginally wanted to get an Intel processor but I need faster renders and the Threadripper seems to handidly beat Intel right now

I think the I9 with a 360mm liquid cooler with push pull fans in a full tower.

And the fastest write speed you can get will be your best option for heat 

You know what memory your software uses. What software are you using to need 128gb anyway? I'm sure its expensive.

Have you looked at rendering gpu's? You may want a Quadro?

Thanks again crawler.
I am using software: 3ds Max with V-ray renderer plugin.  My i7 with 64GB RAM is taking weeks to render one animation scene so I've been checking on forums and tests and the threadripper 3970x scores way way better than i7 and i9.
I asked some 3d guys about Quadros also (I have used older quadros) and they say they are a waste of money for 3ds max and v-ray.  Most of the processing will be done CPU.    
The case my its going to come with is supposed to accept big coolers top and front according to their site:
but according to CP builder the only cooler option I have is the Fatboy I listed in the original post.  The fatboy may indeed be enough. I just don't know and I don't want it to be hot nor do I want to have to add a cooler myself after the fact to such an expensive computer.

I would not put my trust in a fat boy 120mm cooler for what your doing.

It really is beyond 99% of avid YouTubers! 

Most gamers who move their systems won't want a massive air cooler in fear of hurting the mobo. But I think in your case just get the basic cooler that comes with it and swap in that Cooler Master V8 air cooler once you get it. 

This is not the first time I have seen cases called out for smaller coolers than they can hold here. 

Make a call.
