Complete non issue. I am sure you can come up with something better than that to put a touch of grey on the launch. Intel will be happy that you are following their guidance and taking their money.

I'd call it a minor issue, but not a 'non'-issue.

Not same issues as "The past Intel mounting issues"

Like always, AMD should of done better to avoid major cooling related issues instead desperately improving ryzen cpu to forget the important part of durability.

Please state sources? This is a complete non issue, they will have updated screw sizes before customers have an issue. try harder to screw up amd launch :)

It's clearly an issue... You are the worst kind of fanboy. If this were an Intel product, you'd be trashing it like it was the worst thing ever, and don't pretend you wouldn't. The media's job is to report what is going on and this happened, so I would be pissed if they DIDN'T report this.

and before you get all pissy and say I'm an intel fanboy or something, I have an 1800x pre-ordered and currently have an Intel i5 4690k that I got after returning an FX 6300(it was no better than my overclocked phenom...). I buy what best fits my needs(even though I don't really need an 1800x, but F it...)

Intel had this problem with socket 1151, or maybe it was a little worse? This is probably why Noctua is not releasing a kit and instead has purpose built heatsinks.

I'd say minor oversight at best, the problem that Intel had with its heat sinks was actually much worse as it was causing crush issues with the processor. Intel fixed that problem swiftly and it was basically a non-issue. I'm sure AMD will have this issue sorted out before their processors even release. A backplate issue can be problematic to serious, but its something that is easily fixed. Shouldn't be anything to hamper the release of Ryzen.

Noctua does have heatsinks purposely build for the AM4 platform, however they are also offering free backplate kits to make almost all heatsinks made since 2005 compatible with the AM4 platform.

If true, I hope it gets sorted out. Heat issues could leave this dead in the water. I won't be using a stock heatsink anyways. Odd though, Tom's said they don't get involved in the rumour mill leading up to release... I guess we'll find out in a few days.

As stated, this is only a minor issue because its one that is relatively easy to fix. Intel just had a very similar problem when it released Skylake. Intels' issues could actually cause the processor to be crushed, Intel quickly and quietly fixed the issue, AMD will do the same.

There is always that one guy that has to find something not to like about a potential amazing product. This is an issue I have had since 2001, it is not a new problem, just use your head when installing your CPU's cooling solution.

Hey look, Toms is having a scoop...

Did you check this out on all the mobo you tested? Are you sure it is not an isolated case? Is that for a brand of mobo in particular...

Of course, there is no info on that from Tom...

Give me a break...
