MSI’s MEG, MPG, and MAG liquid coolers are compatible with AMD’s new AM5 socket. Owners only need the mounting hardware already included with motherboards to install them. Socket AM5’s backplate uses the same bracket as AM4, so owners can reuse their coolers for Ryzen 7000 series processors.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
