I hope this works well. I was looking at the cooler master cooler that they made for am4 that was like the wraith ripper but the cooling performance was terrible next to my aio.

If Arctic sends me a unit to test, I can compare. I only have an i9 and TR4 system, nothing Ryzen-specific, but it looks like this will support AMD and Intel sockets, so it can certainly be compared directly with a D15, which I will be re-testing on the new 10850k platform.

Please retest for both TR4 and i9 . we need to know how it performs on high TDP CPU as well

Yes but it is not compared against Noctua D15 flagship cooler , I need to know which one is better.

The U14s compared is not two towers design like the D15 and the freezer 50
'Need' is a strong usage of the term, here.

Also, these were all 'Threadripper-only' coolers compared - this isn't a cross-platform comparison of these coolers with others which have mounting flexibility for other sockets. TR4/TRX4 and peer coolers were covered specifically with the Freezer 50 TR4 model.

I own a Noctua NH D-15 and it is a beast, since the Noctua D15 has better performance than the Dark Rock 4 and better performance than the U14, both of which beat the Arctic Freezer 50 you already got your answer. What speaks for the Freezer 50 is its price and that's it.

I’d be interested in seeing a comparison against this against a few other air coolers. I’m still looking into a smoothing other options to deal with the ridiculous fan ramp up on my 3700x stock cooler. If that doesn’t work a good overkill and quite fan will be it’s replacement. Especially if I step up to a higher TDP chip.

i have one of these on a 3900x, 3600x, and 2 lga 1366 cpus, and the one before it, NH-D14 se2011 on a 5930k the are all very good coolers. any other cpus i get, if the d15 supports it, i will put one on it as well.

I'm a bit sceptic. Not that this is going to be a bad performer in absolute terms, but that the noise could be worse than required for the given heatsink:
  • Having two fans usually adds more noise than cooling performance compared to a single fan.
  • Having two fans of different size just makes that matter worse, because it might end up with additional interference noise.
I expect that tests will tell if I'm right to worry...
