Noctua today announced its new NA-TPG1 thermal paste guard for AMD’s latest AM5-based Ryzen processors. When the mounting pressure of the cooling solution is applied, excess thermal paste is squeezed out. With AM5 CPUs, this excess paste tends to accumulate in the recesses on the sides of the heat distributor and can be difficult to remove. The NA-TPG1 is easy and risk-free to apply and prevents this undesirable phenomenon.
“While there’s no denying that AMD’s new Ryzen 7000 processors perform fantastically, we found that the cutouts on the side of the heat spreader tend to attract thermal grease that is difficult to clean,” said Roland Mossig, CEO of noctua). “This is where our new thermal paste guard comes in. It’s a simple yet highly effective tool for keeping your new Ryzen 7000 series CPU nice and clean.”
The NA-TPG1 is made of highly heat-resistant polycarbonate and forms a tight seal around the edges of the CPU’s heat spreader. The NA-TPG1 is easy to apply and remove without risk. Despite its simplicity, it is highly efficient at preventing thermal grease from accumulating in the recesses on the sides of AM5 CPUs.
The NA-TPG1 will be available in a separate set containing ten NA-CW1 cleaning wipes (NA-STPG1) and with new AM5 editions of Noctua’s award-winning NT-H1 and NT-H2 thermal pastes. All three products are expected to be available in December.
Manufacturer’s suggested retail price is EUR/USD 7.90 for the NA-STPG1, EUR/USD 9.90 for the NT-H1 3.5g AM5 Edition and EUR/USD 13.90 for the NT-H2 3.5 g AM5 Edition. Visit this page for more information.
