“Just an ordinary day at the office” says Rok Spenko one of the EK R&D team members. Coming up with new stuff is not an easy task, and just like every “creative lab”, not all ideas get realized. Some get discarded, some are just too complex, but eventually, some ideas get to see the light of the day. The liquid cooling loop built in this Corsair Carbide AIR 540 case is nothing special. It is a simple one CPU, one GPU, one radiator, one pump loop. But… it has some special parts in it, and you will surely recognize them.
AMD is heating things up their new Zen microarchitecture and we came prepared to the party! With the release of the new Ryzen™ CPUs and A-series APUs codenamed Bristol Ridge, the AMD water cooling community will bloom again and that is why we prepared a short tutorial.
Delidding can be described as something like „taking cooling to the next level“. Liquid cooling is far more superior than air cooling, and liquid cooling a delidded processor is even more efficient.
