Noctua has announced a unique kit designed to enable the company's coolers to be installed on delidded AMD Ryzen 7000-series processors. The NM-DD1 kit, which can be either ordered from the company or 3D printed at home, was designed in collaboration with Roman 'der8auer' Hartung, a prominent overclocker and cooling specialist. An effective method to enhance cooling of overclocked AMD's Ryzen 7000-series processors involves removing their built-in heat spreaders (a process known as delidding) and attaching cooling systems directly to their CCD dies. This typically reduces CPU temperatures by 10°C – 15°C, but in some cases it can get 20°C lower, according to Noctua. Lowering CPU temperatures by such a large margin can help owners tap into greater overclocking potential and higher boost clocks, or...
