Corsair is ready for the upcoming launch of AMD’s Ryzen 7000 Series processors, and in more ways than just one. Per a press release shared by the “world leader in enthusiast components for gamers, creators, and PC builders” today, Corsair has confirmed that all of its current all-in-one-liquid CPU coolers (e.g., the RGB ELITE Series) are already compatible with Ryzen 7000 Series CPUs and the all-new AM5 socket. The manufacturer’s free, online PC Builder tool has also been updated to make it easy for users to configure a new system leveraging AMD’s next-generation hardware.
“The AMD AM5 motherboard socket utilizes the same CPU cooler bracket size as AM4,” Corsair explained. “There is no need to purchase new brackets or replace your existing cooler when upgrading your system to the new AM5 platform.”

MILPITAS, CA, August 16th, 2022 – CORSAIR (NASDAQ: CRSR), a world leader in enthusiast components for gamers, creators, and PC builders, today announced its readiness for the new AMD Ryzen 7000 Series processors and accompanying motherboard chipsets.

The CORSAIR PC Builder takes your chosen CPU, graphics card, and motherboard and checks them for compatibility against a vast database of PC parts, coming up with a comprehensive list of CORSAIR parts guaranteed to work with your system. From a correctly sized case and appropriate fans, to a PSU rated to power your build and even RGB lighting, the CORSAIR PC Builder takes the guesswork out of building your new Ryzen 7000 Series powered PC. The CORSAIR PC Builder is even able to intelligently optimize the parts selected, so that you don’t overspend or bottleneck your build with a mismatched component.

AMD Ryzen 7000 Series utilize the next-generation AM5 socket, which is already compatible with all current CORSAIR all-in-one liquid CPU coolers that support AM4, including the versatile ELITE LCD Series, the ultra-bright ELITE CAPELLIX Series, and the performance-driven RGB ELITE Series. With celebrated CORSAIR cooling, your PC will quietly manage the heat while you reap the benefits of next-generation AMD CPU performance.
