RYZEN 3000 OC Custom Mounting Frame
AMD's Zen architecture was a milestone in CPU architecture and a stroke of genius for the Texas chip maker. But instead of resting on its laurels, AMD has continued to develop the "Zen" processors. With the " Ryzen 3000 " processor family based on the "Zen2" architecture, AMD has introduced a chiplet design , for example . For example, the Ryzen 9 3900X consists of a 12 nm I / O die and two CPU dies, which are manufactured in a 7 nm process.
Due to this chiplet design, however, the layout of the CPU dies on the package has also changed, which also shifts the thermal centerHas. For a processor with only one CPU die under the heat spreader, the "hot spot" is in the middle of the CPU. Due to the chiplet design, the "hot spot" moves to the edge of the processor.
Of course, this also has an impact on the cooling behavior of CPU coolers and CPU water coolers. As a rule, custom water coolers are designed by the manufacturer so that the heat dissipation is highest in the middle of the base plate. For optimal cooling performance, the base plate of the water cooler would have to be moved.
This is where professional overclocker Roman Hartung comes in to flexibly design the position of the water cooling base plate on the processor with the der8auer RYZEN 3000 OC custom mounting frame .

der8auer RYZEN 3000 OC custom mounting frame: Important information and compatibility
The der8auer RYZEN 3000 OC Custom mounting frame replaces the mounting system (AMD Socket AM4 Retention Mounting Bracket) on the mainboard. Accordingly, the der8auer RYZEN 3000 OC custom mounting frame offers a very high level of compatibility with AM4 mainboards.
Roman has tested the following mainboards for compatibility:
- ASRock X570 Creator
- ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming X
- ASRock X570 Steel Legend
- ASRock X570 Extreme4
- ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming 4
- ASRock X570 Pro4 90-MXBAT0-A0UAYZ
- ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Hero (WI-FI)
- ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Formula
- ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Hero
- ASUS ROG Strix X570-E Gaming
- ASUS ROG Strix X570-F Gaming
- ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus
- ASUS Prime X570-P
- ASUS Pro WS X570-ACE
- Gigabyte X570 Aorus Xtreme
- Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master
- Gigabyte X570 Aorus Ultra
- Gigabyte X570 Aorus Pro
- Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite
- Gigabyte X570 Gaming X
- Gigabyte X570 UD
- MSI MEG X570 ACE
- MSI MEG X570 Godlike
- MSI Prestige X570 Creation
- MSI MPG X570 Gaming Pro Carbon WiFi
- MSI MPG X570 Gaming Edge WiFi
- MSI MPG X570 Gaming Plus
- MSI X570-A Pro
So far, only X570 mainboards have been tested for compatibility. However, the der8auer RYZEN 3000 OC custom mounting frame will also be compatible with a variety of older AM4 mainboards in the ATX and E-ATX form factor. Mini-ITX motherboards often have components in their way that prevent the kit from being used.
The linked video above provides detailed and highly recommended assembly instructions .
The actually possible lowering of the temperature by using the Ryzen 3000 OC mounting frame depends on the CPU and the CPU cooler used.
