Air cooling AMD's Ryzen? Screw that! Well OK, we are going to do that too, but we figured we would start with the fun stuff since most others would start with what AMD handed them. I spent some quality time here this week with the drill press. Thankfully the Thermalright True Spirit 140 Power, that we used to overclock our 7600K to 5.1GHz/3600MHz on air (shown in the video below), came with a backplate that had mounting points for the new AMD AM4 socket. This allowed me to use it as a template for making new mount points on our Koolance AMD AM3 water block. Also it was a good time to take the block apart and clean it up since it has sat unused for so so long now. Here are some shots of the setup.
