protects the exterior of the Ryzen 7000 IHS

Curious movement of the prestigious manufacturer of refrigeration systems nightand is that the company today announced the NA-TPG1who has the dubious pleasure of being the first shield” Thermal paste concentrated on a single processor, AMD Ryzen 7000.

That’s right, the company says it “protection system” was designed with new socket processors in mind AMD AM5. The reason for this is the special case/heatsink/IHS design in the form of “octopus legs” of these processors. This design exposes critical components that could be damaged if an electrically conductive thermal compound is used. If it is not conductive, the excess electrically conductive compound will end up covering these componentswhich involves a costly risk for future cleaningso this shield arrives to prevent greater evils in the future.

According to the company, this shield arrives manufactured in highly heat-resistant polycarbonate which way an airtight seal on the edges of the CPU package. this shield”Despite its simplicity, it is very effective in preventing thermal paste from building up in the cutouts on the sides of AM5 CPUs.“.

Not sure if it’s like a “template” for spreading thermal paste with a putty knife, or if it should stay mounted, thus remaining hidden under the cooling system used by the user. Visually, it looks like a thick piece of plastic, which, as long as it serves its purpose, is more than enough.

“While there’s no denying that AMD’s new Ryzen 7000 processors are fantastic performers, we’ve found that the side heatsink cutouts tend to attract thermal paste which can be difficult to clean,” says Roland Mossig, CEO of Noctua. . “That’s where our new thermal paste protector comes in – it’s a simple yet very effective tool for keeping your new Ryzen 7000 series CPU clean and nice.”

Plus some wipes to easily clean the CPU

If you already have a thermal compound, the Noctua NA-STPG1 It is made up of the dust cover itself and a handful of special wipes (10 units) to clean the CPU. If you are going to buy a Ryzen 7000 processor and you need a thermal compound, you have the Noctua NT-H1 AM5 Edition and the Noctua NT-H2 AM5 Edition on the one hand. Both are accompanied by this shield.

According to the company, the shield and wipes are priced at €7.90. thermal paste NT-H1 AM5 Edition it has a price of €9.90 for a 3.5 gram syringe. On the other side, the premium compound NT-H2 AM5 Editionof the same weight, at a price of €13.90. Obviously, if Noctua has launched a product of this type, it is because they themselves see that the design of the case can cause other inconveniences, so it would not be surprising if other companies emulate their launch by offering an airtight seal to avoid components. which are exposed.
