Question should the noctua dh 15 be good enough for new ryzen 7950x?

Hey there,

The Noctua is a decent cooler no doubt, and does reasonably well with a 5950x. With that said, the 5950x is a 105w CPU (yes, we know it draws more than that at load), but the 7950x is a 170w CPU. Big jump. Whilst I'm sure it could cool the 7950x okay, setting any OC/PBO or Project Hydra or something might push that cooler.
