Thermalright’s AXP90-X53 Full Black, is the best 53mm low profile cooler currently available. In our extensive testing on LGA1700 & AM5, we found the cooler performed far better in one specific orientation. See images below.
We’ve determined, this is due to cold plate design in relation to LGA1700 & AM5 CPUs. In the second other orientation, the AXP90 coolers perform far worse.
