Most of our current lineup of Hydro Series coolers includes hardware for compatibility with AMD’s AM4 socket. Older models are not compatible out of the box, but the following legacy coolers can be used with the AM4 socket with the additional purchase of our AM4 AMD Retention Bracket Kit:
- H80i v2 (H80i GT)
- H100i v2 (H100i GTX)
- H110i GTX
Here is what’s included in the AM4 AMD Retention Bracket Kit:
- (1) AM4 bracket for circular pumps
- (4x) Collared standoffs
- (4x) Thumbscrews
AMD AM4 Mounting Kit installation instructions:
- Remove the stock AMD mounting clips from the front of your motherboard.
- Insert the AM4 standoffs into the original AMD back plate, collared side down.
- Replace the stock Intel bracket on your Hydro Series cooler with the AMD bracket provided in the kit.
From there, proceed with your typical Hydro Series cooler installation (don't forget to plug in your power and USB cables).
