Hello To the Intel team !
So i buy this wonderfull CPU the i9 7940x for improving my performance in 3D render with the core's and the good clock and IPC for the 2D workloads and the games as well.
The performance of the CPU are just awesome, i got about 4x faster rendering than my not so old 6 core 5820k on C4D. And the 2D perfs was same same, so that not bad, that was perfect for mu usage.
I dont need to overkill my perf with any OC, the core's and speed clock was enought @ stock for my workload.
I just exepct for that money (1350€+300 Modo) that i'll use a system @stock speed that can garantie the confort of the system and mine as well.
And unfortunly that wasnt the case with the i9 7940x cause of the temps i got @ stock.
I'm using allready a good air cooler (DarkRock3), i know that Intel advice to use a liquide cooleur, but i allways use a top air cooleur as i prefer air than liquid.
And on rendering (needed workloads) i was going up to 95°c+ (100°c on many core's) in like 2min of rendering in C4D (100% load). That to much!
Even if i can get a better air cooleur solution, like Noctua D15, with 95°c+ @ stock, using my downstep performance cooleur i wasnt sure to improve a lot my temps with a better one cooler.
I'm using soft like Keyshot that run @ 100% load all the time. I could not imagine my stress on each render or using that soft..
And delid it well, i'm not that kind, this is for crazy overclockers lol.
So i just send back my CPU, i wasnt confortable with the idea to spend all this money on a system that dosnt leave my workflow confortable.
I know befor buying that Intel use a TIM in theyr last manufacturing CPU. But after show some review i was still expecting not so high temps.
So i know you allready have a lot of bad feedback about that TIM, and this is just one more.
But please if someone hear me, it was a realy nice jump of performance for my work and a realy nice solution for my system and i'm realy sad to cant enjoy it as it was supose to be.
I dint been to AMD TR even if i'm not a fan boy of any camp side, i make this choise after choosing witch was feeting the best with my use.
But still please, can you solder you next HEDT CPU's ????
Anyway i keep my money for the next gen of CPU that i think is more "clever" choice for a so big investisement.
Unfortunatly is still to expensife for Xeon solution (for the same kind of perf) as i'm freelancer artiste and i allready do a hard work to upgrade my system.
With wich i'm preaty sure to not get front of the same issues as theyr are soldered!
Like my soldered 5820k that dosnt go up to 52°c 100% during timeeeee of rendering (60°c Max on some core's).
But ok Intel is just 6 core's.. But when we compare to the 6 core's 7800k with TIM, the thermal are much better whit the soldered CPU solution
Thanks for reading my long feedback
A consumor sad of sending back a so powefull CPU.
