If AMD didn't give any bracket information out no one would be able to manufacture mounts for AM4, much less get it to fit or cool adequately due to the disparity in sizes.
Most of the companies have resolved the issues largely. But i and many people still have no updates within the original tentative quoted march and now almost end april date. While i am patient and willing to wait, i can't imagine others will be.
How can you be so gullible / naive? How can anyone but AMD be resposnible for their not releasing mounting specification before starting to sell Ryzen? Do you believe you or your apartment owner is to blame for a power blackout? Because saying AMD is not the one to blame is like saying apartment owner and you are to blame for you not having electricity when there is a power company blackout.
Do you believe people have unicorns and dragons too? AMD not giving out mount specifications is common knowledge among people who followed the AM4 development.
We were able to figure out the mounting hole spacing, but nothing was official until day Ryzen went on sale.
How can anyone but AMD be to blame? They are the source of needed information, and they did not supply it .. so how can AMD blame anyone else? Simple as that.
Again; AMD supplied some CPU data to motherboard manufacturers but never officially released the CPU mounting requirements until the day they started selling the CPUs. Any mounts made before that information was released were made based on guesses .. and while the 54.14mm X 90mm is not a critical measurement, the thickness of CPU / height the IHS is above motherboard is extremely critical. Intel publishes a LGA xxxx datasheet with all the relevant specifications .. not just the mount size and IHS above mohterboard measurements, but including load pressure between cooler and IHS. This is the information needed to design a cooler mount that will work properly.
We can add to this the problem of no pre-release CPUs available to cooler companies .. meaning they could not test mounts on actual product to be sure everything was working as planned .. this testing is critical to be sure everything is as it should be.
Like ciarlatano said, some companies made mounts on the assumption they would work .. many did not and are just recently making mounts available to their customers.AMD not releasing mount specifications is the reason for snafu / fubar delay in mounts being available to us.Edited by doyll - 4/24/17 at 2:01am
