Hey there!

I'm new to the pc building world and i am taking it real slow, recently I built my first gaming pc with help of a buddy who's away for vacations at the moment so I am seeking help from you guys.

I have an AMD Ryzen 5 1500x installed with the stock cooler it came with, it works fine and everything but I have decided to install a liquid cooling system on it and my question is, is it ok to remove a recently installed cpu cooler and replace it? I am just worried that all the paste adding and removing on the cpu is gonna affect the new cooler. Also, do i need to remove the whole mobo to do this?

Yeah it should be fine to replace the cooler, but you may need to take out the motherboard of your machine.


Also make sure to clean your CPU too of the thermal paste of the stock cooler.


It should work out.

You know you want me baby!
