After the release of AMD’s successful flagship CPU, many are now looking to upgrade and harness the power of the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 3D. Before you upgrade, you need to ensure that your PC is fully equipped with all the cooling power it needs to achieve maximum performance with this brand-new processor.  

Thankfully, Overclockers UK is here to tell you the best cooling solutions for the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X CPU.

What is the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 3D CPU?  

The latest innovation in gaming hardware is the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 3D CPU. Thanks to the intelligent 3D cache design and Zen 3 architecture, you can experience legendary gaming performance.  

For more information on AMD’s flagship gaming CPU and its 3D vertical cache design, check out our dedicated blog post! 

Air, AiO, or Completely Custom Loop?  

AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X 3D has the same TDP (Thermal Design Power) as its predecessor, the 5800X. The maximum TDP is 105 watts, with no overclocking ability supported as the Ryzen 7 5800X 3D has reached its full thermal potential of almost 1.35 volts.  


The total power consumption of the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 3D is an average of 142 watts, which makes it an incredibly energy efficient CPU. High performing and reliable air coolers are enough to keep this processor running at optimum temperatures.

  • Black Noctua Focused Flow 120mm PWM premium fan
  • Anti-vibration pads for near-silent operation
  • Matching heatsink and accessories available

AiO Water Cooling:  

The general rule of thumb when it comes to water cooling a CPU is that a 120mm radiator is sufficient to cool on average 100 watts. 

This means that a 240mm radiator is large enough to supply enough cooling power to the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 3D. A 240mm radiator is compatible with most small form factor gaming PCs, ideal for those looking to create a powerful system that saves on space.  

However, here at OcUK we would personally recommend that you invest in a larger radiator, such as a 360mm instead. The larger surface area ensures that this CPU consistently performs at optimum temperatures. Plus, the additional pumps and fans can be configured to run at low speeds, for a near-silent, cool operation.

Custom Water Cooling:  

Custom water-cooling systems are one step further than traditional AiO radiators. 

Custom water-cooling systems typically consist of a water block, pump, reservoir, radiator, and soft or hard tubing. This allows for a plethora of different custom configurations, such as utilising coloured liquid coolant and effects, to create a stunning unique display that will be the envy of your enemies.
