I've seen Cool Hand Luke too. And sorry, but it is you who doesn't seem to understand the topic of this thread.

From P4-630's opening post (my bold underline) added,
Gelid has designed a protective bracket to prevent Ryzen processors from being pulled out of the AM4 socket by sticky thermal paste when replacing the cooler.

Now I don't like to say you are wrong...
Right.
...but you are.
And no I'm not.

The problem is the sticky TIM (as noted in the first post in this thread). Not the way CPUs mount in their sockets. And AMD is not a TIM maker.

If a person is always ripping the chips out vs others that never seem to have that problem, maybe the problem is the user, not the product.
^^^THIS^^^ I mean, how can one blame AMD if the user improperly yanks on a cooler that's stuck due to sticky thermal paste?

Back in May last year when I swapped the factory Spire for a Neptwin, mine still came off together with the Spire even after half an hour or so of OCCT plus twisting. Nopesies.

Thread has become off topic vicious and argumentative.

Back down the tone some...
Stay on topic.
Keep it on the technical side.

Remember, the Guidelines when you post!
Here, is a little refresher:
Posting in a thread
Be polite and Constructive, if you have nothing nice to say then don't say anything at all.
This includes trolling, continuous use of bad language (ie. cussing), flaming, baiting, retaliatory comments, system feature abuse, and insulting others.
Do not get involved in any off-topic banter or arguments. Please report them and avoid instead.

Healthy debates will generally be allowed if the following criteria is met.
Useful sources and constructive wording.
Maintain the topic that they're taking place in.
No insults, trolling, shaming, hate or toxicity.
Avoid political or religious comment unless it is specifically relevant to a topic and in those cases is only acceptable if done in an unbiased manner.
Once it is considered over, do not drag it on only to have the last word.
Short and pointless posts like "yeah", "me too" or "haha" can be made on the rest of the internet, not here. Post count doesn't increase your e-penis.
Stay on topic, changing the topic won't help the discussion. Feel free to create a new thread instead.

Thank You and have Good Day

They are over 17 years late as Socket 754 A64s already came with the cooler if you didn't twist it... in fact Pentium 4 had that problem even before that.

Here's my two cents.

AMD, make a proper socket retention mechanism. It's the only thing I absolutely hate about this platform, other than that, no complaints.

Sorry but the Intel socket (aside from being LGA) is superior in every way.
