3970x Cooling Advice

Hello Everyone

I have been trying to get the answer about the best cooler for 3970x cpu, but it gave me so much headache. I don't want to build custom loop because I have zero experience in that arena, so I really don't want to risk it. Instead, I want to go with some kind of premade solution.
I was looking at AlphCool Eisbear 360, and Eisbear Extreme solutions, but could't not find any benchmarks to see how will it perform.
At this moment I am more interested in Extreme version. It looks like a powerful and silent cooler that will be able to cool 3970x, but I need some kind of advice from someone more experienced in water cooling arena, as this would be my first water cooling.

Is there someone with the knowledge about how Eisbear Extreme cooler will perform with 3970x cpu?

Thanks

Hi, the Eisbaer systems are equiped with the XPX blocks and the surface of the blocks are not big enough to cover the entire CPU. Therefore we have devoloped the new CPU block which is perfect for the new Ryzen CPU,s. But not as AIO :(

Ok, good to know. Thank you for the response. I think I will give up on AIO and just build a custom loop :)

Hi there! Do you also have plans to release updated blocks for new AM4 Ryzen CPUs (e.g. 3900x, 3950x)? What about updated AIOs?
If you would update Eisbaer LT240 AIO with better 3rd gen Ryzen support - I would buy it in a blink of an eye :)

Hey, we working hard on it to bring the AIO with the bigger surface block as soon as possible to the market. Two of our CAD drawer are working on it already. I only can not say for now when we will have them on stock but as mentioned before very soon :)

Hi,

I am also waiting on the "update" version of the extreme 280 black editon fo the threadripper 3970x...but why not only exchange the xpx block for the u1 pro?

Because we are working on a real Trheadripper AIO solution. Makes no sense to make an update for the Extreme Edition if its in 2-3 month EOL.

Will the new CPU cooling plate fit the Eisbaer LT pump? The stock plate is large enough but my understanding is that the cooling fins/pins/structures on the inside are not placed as well as they could be for the latest Ryzen CPUs with more chiplets (like 3950x, for example).
