My Workstation/Gaming Pc build.

I am building a workstation and gaming pc but I am confused between AMD Tr 1950x , Intel i9 7900x and 7920x and Intel i7 7820x and I7 7800k 8th gen cpu. Which one should I go with and which have good temps?

  1. The choice of those CPUs will depend on what software you are going to use and how much budget you have. Temp is the last thing I would worry about.
  2. I need it for video and 3d rendering. For the temps in India it is too hot in summers so the problem is still there.

    The AMD Threadripper 1950x has more cores and threads than the i7 7920x, so in CPU demanding applications it should perform better.

    The Intel single core performance is still faster by a small margin, but it can overclock better then Threadripper making single threaded apps even faster.

    Threadripper is a darn good chip for its price, Both platforms seem to run fairly warm so you will need a decent cooler, and Threadripper is vary limited right now with the options for good cooling.

    Again if you know you don't need all of them threads and cores, the 7920x or cheaper the 7820k can be pretty quick and if you want to venture into overclocking again you can get the single core performance pretty high compared to Threadripper.
  4. I agree with everything you said but the problem is Intel i7 and i9 X series chips are seen very hot and for cooler I heard that even AIO can't handle there heat but for Amd Threadripper Enermex 360mm Liqtech Tr4 is a good choice. Only the temps are confusing to me.

    Yes the i7 or i9's on the x299 and even KabeLake do run a bit hot, At stock they are perfectly fine, and even with an AIO you could push them a little bit, can't really say how far but an AIO will differently keep them cool at stock, even a higher end air cooler will do just fine.

    Threadripper, you are pretty limited right now, and even AIO's like Corsair use round blocks that don't cover the Threadripper die properly, There is only like 1 or 2 AIO's I've seen that covers a Threadripper properly, I'm not sure on the Air coolers that have the TR4 mounting, but as long as they cover the entire top of the Threadripper chip, it should do fine.
