Temperatures and Power Draw
The 3rd Generation of Ryzen processors really show the benefits of the 7nm process. The stock cooler supplied is more able to handle the lower core count of the Ryzen 7 3700X, The 3700x can be overclocked on the stock cooler on the loud 'high' setting but its really not able to cope with the heat from an overclocked 3900x at all. This really isnt a negative fact for a tiny cooler trying to keep 12 rampaging overclocking cores in check though.
One curiosity though is the extra power being drawn when you overclock on the X570 platform, despite the processor actually running cooler. Hmm.
