In this video, we’re recapping some practical applications of our extreme overclock testing. This will help you determine which cooler you should buy for the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X by demonstrating just how much every couple degrees matters. We plotted about a 25MHz delta for every 4-7 degrees, depending on where on the scale it was. Separately, in the first half of the video, we ran Blender at 5.2GHz (just for fun) and matched an AMD Threadripper 2990WX. Discussion on Infinity Fabric cold scale is also included.
