The German water cooling specialist Aqua Computer offers a practical sealing frame for Socket AM5 CPUs. The flexible frame made of silicone fits perfectly with the bulky outer contour of the heat spreader and effectively prevents thermal paste or liquid metal from entering these openings. The sealing frame can withstand both very high and low temperatures and can also be easily cleaned if necessary, making it possible to use it time and time again.
The installation is very simple: the sealing frame is inserted into the slot of the processor. Once the locking mechanism is closed, the corners of the sealing frame are gently pressed with a finger into the recesses of the heat spreader and the mechanism is then locked.
Aqua Computer offers the sealing frame for EUR 6.90 through its web shop and will soon also be available through its resellers.
