My ambient room temperature is around 25c (located in Florida so its pretty much always hot outside), and yes I have UH14s-TR4 and thermal paste should be good. Just want to make sure these temps are save to run at?

Some of my benchmarks so far:
Corona: 38 secs

@Juraj Talcik

After a month of waiting I finally got my 3960x! Got everything put together and have been running benchmarks, only question now is im getting some pretty high temps right now. Im getting around 50 idle and about 85 at full load. Is this normal?

Hey Juraj you have been very helpful and had a few more questions if you dont mind.

Im worried about high temps with the 3960x threardripper and 2080 Ti. I saw in your build in another forum post for a 3950X, that you included 4x Noctua a12x25(PWM) for airflow, do you suggest I do the same? The case I have ordered is the Fractal Design Define R6 and cooler I have is the Noctua NH-U14S?

Don't forget to post pictures and benchmarks once you build :- )

Of course!

@Juraj Talcik Thank you for the super detailed response, I was able to find a 3960X and updated my build a little and took your suggestions. Also your point on the ram is very true and have no problem spending the extra for 128.

Im pretty lost when it comes to the hardware side of things, but im in need of a new workstation (5k USD budget). I've read around to gather as much info as I can and was wondering thoughts on this build.

Background info I use CPU/GPU render engines pretty equally.

Threadripper 2990WX (cant really wait for gen 3 Threadrippers)
Kraken X62 Liquid CPU Cooler
Kingston HyperX Predator 64 GB (4 x 16 GB) DDR4-3000 Memory (Can't see myself working on a project that would exceed 64gb but is going up to 128 just worth it in case I ever do?)
Intel 660p Series 1.02 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive
Asus GeForce RTX 2080 Ti 11 GB
Corsair 750D ATX Full Tower Case
be quiet! Straight Power 11 1000 W

Any help/thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated!

Hey I saw your post on the importance of keeping reflection color pure white and understand the importance for keeping the Fresnel edge to pure white. Instead of using IOR maps to add this detail could you still use maps in the reflection slot remapped with a falloff map to upkeep the pure white edge?? Sorry if its a dumb question have been keeping up with all your posts for a while, love all the information and theories/ideas you provide, keep it up
