The chip needs to be set and screwed down in the TR4 socket properly. If not it wont read all the memory modules and can cause all kinds of issues. This chip likes low latency C14 memory for the infinity fabric. It is not cheap but it is highly recommended. The memory will read at a much lower speed when you first put them in your motherboard but highend memory should overclock to 3200mhz which makes the system run significantly faster.
Get familiar with the ryzen master software it has a lot of settings and a couple different performance configurations like creator or game mode. It will also give you the true temperature readings since many mobos and programs are reading the Threadripper temps incorrectly. If anyone has any issues with installation or configurations send me a message.
I purchased this processor for 4K+ video editing and color grading, and it delivers without breaking a sweat. I am able to playback 4K, 5K, and most 6K RED footage at Full Res/Premium quality in real time via DaVinci Resolve. In fact, I can play back two streams of 4K/23.98 RED footage in real time, allowing for dissolves and compositing without having to cache/render. It also crushes video encoding and transcoding tasks. This CPU completely demolishes my Xeon based systems, for significantly less money.
That said, if you are not pushing this processor to its full potential, it may actually be slower than a more mainstream model. For example, when working in HD, my Avid Symphony systems based on older i7-7700K processors actually outperform this CPU due to higher clock speeds. Also, Threadrippers are harder to cool than more mainstream processors, which can lead to throttling and slower performance, if not planned for accordingly.
So, before hopping on the hype train, make sure you have a plan to use the raw power that this processor is capable of, and not let most of it sit idle. However, if you have high level computing tasks, or do a ton of multitasking, then this processor is a fantastic choice.
1. Make sure your motherboard has the most recent BIOS updates. Especially if they're a Generation One Threadripper board. Although it is compatible with Gen 2 Ryzen, it may not work without a BIOS update beforehand.
2. Make sure your RAM is at least CL 14 - CL 16 with 3200 Mhz DDR4 Ram Quad Channel RAM. Threadripper's Infinity Fabric is EXTREMELY memory hungry and without fast ram, the latency can cause bottlenecking issues under heavy rendering loads. You may have to update your BIOS in order to see your RAM hit anywhere near 3200 Mhz, as mine were pinned at 2400Mhz until I did an update that allowed me to hit higher frequencies.
3. GET A PROPER COOLER. A lot of companies are lying about their support for the TR4 platform but really only cover about 75% of the CPU. As of now, only the Cooler Master Wraith Ripper and Enermax TR4 can get the job done properly. I opted for the Enermax (1st gen was trash but 2nd gen seems to me holding up) and I'm seeing temps of 55 - 60 under full load.
At the end of the day, yes you'll be able to run Fortnight in 5 different instances while streaming in 1440P BUT I hope anyone who's thinking about getting this type of system to start investing in learning CAD, Adobe Premier, ETC. You now have a machine that is designed with work in mind and it would be a shame to not maximize your return from an investment in hardware like this.
