    Intel Skylake CPUs are bending due to cooler mount pressure

    Skylake uses a thinner substrate than Intel's previous generation processors.

    Cooler Master just sent HEXUS an email which said:
    "We would like to reaffirm our commitment to all our fans and supporters that you can rest assured,
    all air and liquid cooling products from Cooler Master are not affected by the mounting issue. "

    Re: Intel Skylake CPUs are bending due to cooler mount pressure

    "Intel confirmed that Skylake uses a thinner substrate but it is rated for the same 50lb. maximum static load as prior generations"

    They say that, but the evidence is suggesting otherwise..

    So aftermarket chavy badly designed bling heatinks are causing problems. Who would have thought it.

    Any word from corsair? I am looking at purchasing a skylake package that would include a corsair H100i GTX but would prefer to avoid a knackered cpu/motherboard combo

    Re: Intel Skylake CPUs are bending due to cooler mount pressure

    Reads more like Intel overestimated the amount of pressure the new cpus can take rather than cooler manufacturers getting it wrong. They might all be within specs.. but if the spec is wrong?

    A small waterblock is going to exert very little bending force on the CPU & motherboard. I expect this is only an issue in cases where people are mounting massive heatsinks vertically and unsupported. Like this.

    Re: Intel Skylake CPUs are bending due to cooler mount pressure

    Hmm... I'm currently planning a build with the i7 6700k, now this has me worried.

    Planning to use water cooling anyway. So there wont be as much pressure on the CPU as a huge air cooler. Guess I'll take my chances.

    Re: Intel Skylake CPUs are bending due to cooler mount pressure

    I maybe wrong but so far it seems like this is limited to a single manufacturers mounting mechanism, other coolers not using this "Hyper-Precision Mounting System" don't apear to be effected, that raises the question of if it's a problem with Skylake's thinner PCB or this particular mounting system over stressing the 50lb limit Intel sets.

    Well since there was no reports of it before hand and now there is I imagine it's still the CPU at fault.

    Maybe the margins were always tight before have moved slightly in the wrong direction?

    Re: Intel Skylake CPUs are bending due to cooler mount pressure

    Can a manufacturer really be to blame though if you exceed their recommended safe limit, sure you maybe able to go over that recommended safe limit but can you really blame them if they lower their tolerances?

    Re: Intel Skylake CPUs are bending due to cooler mount pressure

    I was going to run my xigmatek aegir on my 6700 when it arrives, its clamping solution doesn't mess about... wonder what the chances of me destroying the chip and mobo are?

    Re: Intel Skylake CPUs are bending due to cooler mount pressure

    I've got a massive nh-d15 on my Skylake 6600k. Should really have gone for (quiet) all in one water cooling, the thing is just a little big to be comfortable with (for me, for now at least). Nothing is the matter, it's just unreasonably big, nice and quiet though.

    Still works fine and although it's got to be close to the biggest available no problems so far. I don't leave my case upright though, I rest it on it's side, that may be helping.

    Who knows if the "Hyper-Precision Mounting System" manufacturer even checked if they were over this 50lb limit.

    I'm just posting for the sake of posting, really
