Ohhhhhhhh. You'll be fine then. There are 5 headers on this mobo. CHA_Fan 2 at the bottom, CHA_Fan 1 in the center, CHA_Fan 3 in the top right, and CPU_1, CPU_OPT at the top right.
Another question... Will that same cooler work for a gen 2 threadripper? I cannot find info that tells me what kind of performance it would bring to a gen 2 threadripper.
It should be similar. I had my 2950X in there for a bit.
thats what I was aiming for. the Noctua Website said that the 2950x was the only one that had any spare room for overclocking (was not planning to, wanted to see how well the cooler handed temperature wise).
Ah, well the 2950X will get a bit hotter under load since it is capable of boosting to 4.3 on a core or two, but I wouldn't say it gets unreasonable.
As dumb as this sounds... is it a good Idea to get the 1900X just to save money then upgrade later?
