    Thermalright Silver Arrow TR4 Threadripper cooler launched

    And it looks like AMD will be releasing its 2nd gen Threadripper CPUs on 13th August.

    Does anyone know if all existing motherboards can supply enough juice for the 250W CPUs? I've read that they *should* be able to without overclocking, but some will fall short if you do want to overclock.

    Looks like some will be short on power for overclocking yes. Fine for 250w but not much overhead

    I've heard the same. It will depend on the mobo you have. Some will have larger tolerances than others but they generally weren't designed to deliver this level of pixies constantly. I expect that most will fall short for constant power delivery and almost all will struggle with overlocking and delivering max oomph over the long term.

    That's what I'm concerned about - the constant delivery over long term. I regularly max out my 1900x for long periods (1-2 hours), so I'd hate for a, say, 2990x to be power-throttling during that period (granted, it won't be for as long).

    Hopefully.

    Given the lack of concrete information, we'll just have to wait for the CPU support lists and reviews to come out. I tried contacting Gigabyte about the X399 Designaire Ex, but they couldn't help.

    As far as I remember the motherboards were specced for 250w from the get go

    I had hoped that would be the case. AMD must have known they were going to release the monster Threadrippers from the get-go and planned accordingly.
