Need help direct die cooling with Aquacomputer Cuplex Kryos NEXT

Monday, March 8th 2021, 3:44pm


I'm trying to cool a i9 10900k direct die with a Aquacomputer Cuplex Kryos NEXT. I have installed a Rockit Cool 10th Gen direct die cooling kit. The problem is that the Cuplex Kryos Next mount standoff are to tall for the block to make contact with the CPU die.

Does Aquacomputer have a direct die cooling mounting solution for their water blocks? I have scavenged together misc. parts from old block mounts and have a working solution. My solution is not perfect put works. I would prefer a Aquacomputer solution to my issue if available.

Thank you for any help

Did you fix it? I'm about to do the same thing, all info I could find was from the German part of the forum after a google search and my German is terrible, but looks like someone fixed it with long M4 screws and plastic/nylon washers. My new motherboard is inbound today so, I will give it a try later.
