    it'd be super funny if AMD played the CPU Nazi on this one
    "sorry DELL no Ryzen/ThreadRipper/Epyc for you !! "

    Sadly I'm not sure they're in the position to be declining stock to huge OEMs. AMD severely lack mindshare. They need to be a more household name with common folk or everyone will just default to intel regardless of their price and performance.

    I appreciate your point of view, and I even agree, if I had a 180W TDP chip, I'd be getting a bulkier Noctua to deal with it.

    That being said, I'd rather have one designed for the size of the IHS, than putting something like a 212+ on. Surely the larger contact area would help.

    Also, I've cooled a 220W FX9570 with a Gammaxx400 and it was fine at idle. Never tried it at load, though.

    It does have copper pipes that are also part of the base plate. Noctua for example has a nickel plated base plate, so I'd imagine the copper one would cool better?

    The performance difference would be negligible.

    ive got a 9590 currently under a single 120mm fan AIO and under load it makes a lot of noise I wish I had gone with the 240mm one at the time.

    Bigger contact area means better heat transfer.

    If you are into overclocking you would want something that works over the whole die.

    My preference would be for a heatsink rather than AOI (water near so much expensive mobo and ram). But either way I would be buying something new, so I would want it to cover majority of the CPU dies at least.

    I will wait for the non-x processors to appear.

    If they come with a cooler like the one in the MSI video, I would be pretty happy. It's neat, its clean, its not too big. Certainly looks like what a OEM cooler might be.

    Reminds me of the old Athlon XP cooler.

    it looks like a high-speed noisy fan and most likely from a server off a epyc cpu

    What I took away was they ran a 40* multiplier on all 16 cores at 1.3625 vcore.

    That would be such a sweet turn of events.
