CPU Cooler Roundup – 9 coolers tested w/ AMD Ryzen 9 5950X

As you have probably noted, the new Zen 3 chips offer excellent performance, power, and thermals. But they really do run hot and require high-end cooling when overclocked hard with the solid frequency gains. That is particularly true for the 16-core 5950X that will often be at home in heavily pushed overclocked systems, so effective cooling is absolutely critical.

As such, we thought it would be good to examine how a variety of coolers that we have in for testing perform when given the tough task of cooling the Ryzen 9 5950X in a variety of operating configurations.
