"The 32-core / 64-thread AMD Threadripper 2990WX carries a 250
Watt TDP rating, thus the cooling performance is quite important
especially if you don't want to hit any thermal throttling with this
$1799 USD processor. Fortunately, the 2990WX doesn't require water
cooling but actually can work quite well with high-end air heatsinks
too. For adding some perspective on the cooling requirements of the
Threadripper 2990WX, here are benchmarks of five heatsinks and two
all-in-one water cooling systems."
