So I will be upgrading from a 8700 into a 3900X + ROG CROSSHAIR VIII HERO. I will be getting to 4.6Ghz.

Right now, I use a ML360R from cooler master.

12C/24T would have a lot more heat than 6C/12T so would the cooler be enough, or should I get a 360 EK copper rad for an open loop?

I would be playing some games like CS and R6 but not any AAA games and I only do very mild editing.
Thanks!
 
That cooler is fine. The 3900x is very efficient using 7nm compared to the 14nm of the 8700 .

For gaming there will be no benefit from this change. Your benefit will be limited to your editing. Seems an expensive change for someone doing ‘mild’ editing.
