There is no shortage of ways to keep your processor cool. Liquid cooling is the most efficient, effective way to do so. So whether you’re killing it in Cyberpunk 2077 or streaming editing 4K video, keeping that CPU cool is the standard to aspire to.

Asetek Evangalist Shawn Sanders and I have all four of the new AMD 5000 series processors between us: the Ryzen 5 5600X, Ryzen 7 5800X, Ryzen 9 5900X, and Ryzen 9 5950X. With the new Zen 3 architecture, these CPUs are both tremendously powerful and highly overclockable. Asetek has worked closely with partners to make the best-in-class liquid cooling solutions no matter which one you’ve got.

AMD lists a number of excellent options.  And don’t forget newcomers from ADATA and Phanteks, at the bottom. For all your CPU cooling needs, always go with liquid cooling. The new Phanteks Glacier One series is looking very bespoke. Yet every option below (and in the gallery above) is a good one. These liquid coolers are everything you need to keep that new (or mature!) rig processing how it should.
