This was as a response to the idea of using a ryzen as alternative to a 1950 and solving possible thermal issues if they would occur. I never mentioned using a TR on an AM4.



It appears you may have misunderstood the comment you were replying to upthread - the original debate was if buying a 1950X at $499 would be cheaper/better than a $750 Ryzen. @lhoff pointed out that even when the 1950X is cheaper, you'd still need to buy relatively expensive coolers and mobo (for TR), meaning you won't be saving (much) on older tech. Thermal issues weren't the subject (except as an explanation on why TR4 coolers are expensive).

In turn, I misunderstood your reply to @lhoff, because in that context, I read it as a rebuttal of the idea that TR parts being expensive by suggesting an AM4 mobo + TR4 cooler as substitutes on a 1950X system.
