With a loss of sustained boost clocks, this is not the silent workstation cooler I had been hoping for. Oh well, should be nice for silent multimedia systems with some short-duration gaming loads.

From the compatibility list, Ryzen 5800X entry, fanless:

CPU might fall slightly below base-clock under continuous full load.
I call that an absolute win. This is not meant for rendering, for example, but for bursts of use. If it can handle it that well, this cooler is great.

The passive cooler just absorbs the heat from the CPU without a fan thanks to its monstrous size, but you still need case fans to remove the heat from the cooler's fins.

They need to add Vapor chamber to this cooler ... Vapor chamber + heatpipes proved to be the best. I am still waiting for Noctua to try it

Taken together a vapor chamber might work, otherwise the small temperature differential would likely be insufficient for a vapor chamber to function properly.
