I'm sure someone will then have said 'Hey, if AMD made the IHS 1.5mm thicker we wouldn't need a whole new cooling and mounting solution!'This IHS design is a compromise that shouldn't happened. They've (AMD) earned so much consumer points for compatibility already, might've tried something new for a change. I mean, it's a completely new platform, all parts (CPU, MB, RAM) are already way too much expensive, so why the hell did they bogged down the thermals just for the sake of a damn compatibility? Someone has the money for the AM5 upgrade, but will cheap out on a CPU cooler by reusing the old one? WTH AMD!?
