A year ago the prototype of the IceGiant ProSiphon impressed us with it's cooling performance, but does the much smaller retail unit keep up?

  • Cool, I was going to ask that you do a review of the release version of this. However, we still need to see comparative benchmarking on high-end AM4; you've covered Threadripper, which most people will not have, and high-end Intel desktop CPUs, which are losing market share to to 3950X, 3900X, etc. Those seem like the sweet spot for this: gamers will overclock them, and they're common, and they don't have a central hot spot like Intel chips, and not all of us want water in our systems (or, as in my instance, have cases not suited for AIOs due to the mounting positions available and their vertical relation to the CPU, but large enough for an Ice Giant).

    • Check our there website then compare it to your case clearance. Off the top of my head I think it's 48mm for ram, 164mm for length "measured from mobo to it's tip" and 251mm wide. Basically about as long as a 2 slot 2080ti. My gigabyte specifically almost comes flush with it on the right side.

    • @Trucker Jack what rpm are you maxing them on? The color is fine with me, I "wear" noctua fans with pride even if the color doesn't suit most of the people. To me its kind of a symbol of showing quality. Like some sports car that is known to be a legend but doesn't look that great or something. Hard to explain. Besides unless you plan on using a windowed sidepanel you don't see them anyway.

  • Any idea whether this would be legit viable on an AMD Ryzen 9 3950X 3.5 GHz 16-Core Processor? It's around 100 watts, and AMD suggests liquid cooling. I've seen a few people on amazon saying they're going this route, but it's not a threadripper, so I can't tell if I'm overpaying for something I don't fully need with this.

    Randal LombardoRandal LombardoAcum lună
    • @Randal Lombardo You should just need to enable PBO and maybe some sight voltage adjustments plus memory (unless you have a reason for an all core OC). There's also the Curve Optimizer that is in beta which can tweak performance. This should work well for any Ryzen because of their chiplet design in general.

    • ​ @Rahq Vuth Everything else for my build but the graphics card arrived, so I picked up a $70 liquid cooler as an interim device. I spoke to Ice Giant on twitter and they replied very quickly, said it would pair excellently with the 3950, especially if I overclock. So I guess I'm gonna learn how to overclock, assuming the thermosiphon ever makes it through Shipageddon.

  • So to summorise: Ice giant Elite is almost the same as much more expensive custom water coolling. Ice giant Elite is also worse than Nh.d15 air cooler in normal consumer CPU's. So we can say that for normal consumer CPU's Nh-d15 AIR cooler is BETTER that custom water cooling. And it is much cheaper.

  • I just ordered one of these coolers for my 3970X. The Gigabyte Aorus 280 AOI cooler I've been using is terrible for this CPU, despite being on AMD's list of approved coolers. It looks cool, but idle temps are atrocious at 55-60C and it's always running the fans at high RPM, so I'm hoping the ProSiphon is much quieter than the AOI (hopefully these new fans help) and it seems like it should result in a MUCH cooler CPU.
