RGB Heaven/Hell :) My New AMD build. Threadripper 3970X

Just finished a new AMD build.

Here is the parts list:
CPU: AMD Threadripper 3970X
Motherboard: Asus Zenith II Extreme
(purchased before the Alpha came out, and missed the return window)
RAM: G.Skill 32 Gb of 3200Mhz
Nvme Drives: 2 - 2Tb PCI 4.0 RAID 0 - 1 - 2Tb scratch drive
Storage Drive: 14Tb Iron Wolf Pro
Graphics: EVGA RTX 2080 Ti
Power: Corseair AX1200i
Case: Lian Li O11 Dynamic XL
Thermaltake Riing Trio Fans (2 RMAs already for the controller boxes)

Water cooling parts: EKWB:
2 360 rads slim line.
CPU block
GPU block
10/12 mm tubing

I am mainly using this computer as an editing computer for video and a few games like Star Citizen and MS Flight Sim 2020.

Does someone have a similar computer setup, what I am wondering what are your temperatures during heavy loads on the CPU?

This was my first attempt at water cooling with hard line tubing and I am wondering about some of the temps that I am seeing.

Room temp around: 26C
Idle with 33C with side panels off
Idle around 37C with side panels on
Underload upwards of 70C

I have not overclocked the CPU or GPU yet…they seem kinda high without an overclock.
I am thinking the case might be to restrictive on airflow for this water cooled build.


Here is the base line run of Cinebench R20 run:

Here is the Cinebench R15

I think I might have got a good chip this time in the lottery.
