German overclocker Der8auer is creating a brand new Ryzen 7000 direct die water block referred to as the AM5 Mycro Direct Die cooler, that achieves considerably higher thermal efficiency in comparison with commonplace AIO liquid coolers. In testing, the block was in a position to drop an overclocked Ryzen 9 7900X, one of many greatest CPUs, from 90C (on a inventory 280mm AIO) all the best way down to simply 65C. The block might be coming quickly and value 100 Euros for the non-RGB and round 130 to 140 Euros for the RGB model.
The block is a direct-die resolution that requires the removing of Ryzen’s IHS (built-in warmth spreader) to perform. The profit is that the block could make direct contact with the 2 or three chiplets utilized on Ryzen 7000 CPUs for optimum thermal effectivity. The Mycro Direct Die block works at the side of one other Der8auer product referred to as a high-performance warmth spreader that replaces the mounting mechanism on the AM5 socket and supplies the direct-die performance of the block on the identical time. (Primarily the block and warmth spreader are bought collectively, with the block being put in on high of the warmth spreader.)
The warmth spreader is manufactured with mirror-like diamond-milled precision surfacing that reportedly supplies a wonderful floor space for the CPU and is designed in a method that’s insusceptible to any bending which may happen from excessive mounting stress. The block itself is made out of acrylic, with subtle RGB lighting (on the RGB mannequin).
Der8auer demonstrated the thermal traits of his Mycro Direct Die block with a Ryzen 9 7900X overclocked to 5GHz (at a core voltage of 1.3v). He examined a number of totally different configurations, which included testing with the high-performance warmth spreader individually with an ordinary all-in-one liquid cooler.
Inventory cooling with an unnamed 280mm AIO resulted in a temperature of 90C, the identical AIO paired with Der8auer’s AM5 high-performance warmth spreader dropped temps considerably to the high-70s. The identical resolution plus an offset bracket dropped the temps even additional to the low 70s. However the very best resolution was his new Mycro Direct-die resolution, which noticed the CPU max out at lower than 65C.
The result’s a formidable 25-degree discount in CPU temperatures. This could present Ryzen 7000 CPUs will loads of temperature headroom to spare for overclocking functions. It may also be useful at inventory frequencies the place Ryzen 7000’s Precision Enhance algorithm can enhance clock speeds additional in comparison with what it’s able to at 90C.
