One of my teachers’ husbands was throwing away an older cyberpowerpc, and the teacher decided to ask me if I wanted it. I got it, and I noticed that it has a Corsair AIO (120mm). It is most likely an older model, and the block is round. The tubing is not sleeved, and is just rubber. There was one problem, which was that I wanted to put it into my computer, which is a x570 phantom gaming ITX mobo with Ryzen 9 3900x. This has lga 115x, while the AIO is am3+. I was wondering where I could find a retention bracket for my motherboard.

It's probably a basic Asetek bracket, and easy enough to source.

Where does 115x come into it? If the existing socket is AM3, you have AM4...... no 115x aspect?

I'm assuming this is probably the bracket you're looking for, but without knowing the specific AIO, it's tough to say with 100% certainty.

HOWEVER, socket AM3+ launched in 2011, so that AIO has (potentially) been in use for up to ~9 years. Even at 3-4 years, I wouldn't recommend using it. They're rarely good for much beyond their rated warranty period.

I turned on the computer and cleaned out the AIO. It seems to work, as it was getting very hot before I dusted it, now it is cool to the touch. Thank you so much. I’ve managed to find some, but they are either discontinued or pricey.

This motherboard has 115x mounting hardware.

Ah, ok, didn't realize.

Looks like this is what you want (again, assuming this is the type of mounting for the AIO).

Take a look at Corsair's 120mm AIOs.... I'm thinking you probably have an H55 , based on your description.

I also found that the AIO was probably a Corsair hydro series h75 (older model).
Old H75 or H55 should use the same bracket.
