MODZERO ASHEN V2.0

MODZERO ASHEN V2 - The sequel!

Simply put, I wanted to move ASHEN over to 100% AMD! my B450 board had developed a fault and I'd picked up a 5700XT. I got in touch with EK and they helped me out with their new Torque fittings and that very special 5700XT block! Gigabyte also did me proud and sent over their X570 ITX board. So I sold the 2700X and picked up the king of value CPUs the 3600X.

Granted, AMD drivers for the NAVI GPUs are still poor but when it sings! it's truly a powerhouse of a mid-range mini beast!

Moving the loop over to the GPU left me looking for a solution for that ZEN 2 chip so I reached out to NOCTUA and they sent me over a couple of coolers to try out. The D9L fits like a glove next to the DDC pump and the 92mm redux fan blows air across the MOSFETs and that DDC housing which has been great for temps.
