AMD 4 Retention Socket

As an Intel user, I have no idea about the newer AMD 4 specs, but I do know I have had trouble sourcing a replacement set of studs and thumbscrews to suit a Corsair H100 AIO from Australia where I live. Was glancing through fleabay earlier tonight and saw PLENTY of listings for replacement retention kits for AMD 4, complete with 4 studs, 4 thumbscrews and the AMD 4 Retention bracket.

To me, they appeared to very similar size to a standard Intel CPU retention socket on a 2011 CPU board, so am hoping some AMD aficionado here can confirm the size of the thread that screws into the motherboard fixing...is it a standard M4 thread?

My mechanical expertise will certainly cover whatever I need to do to adapt or modify the studs to suit my intended use...even if I have to weld separate parts together.

Looking at the pictures of the studs for the AMD 4 they appear to be an M4 thread, with what looks like a "collar" around the motherboard end of the stud...and if indeed they are M4 screws, then I'm thinking the removal of the collar will leave me with a usable replacement stud for my 2011; and I'm guessing that the top part of the thread, where the thumbscrew is used, is just the basic thread that all Corsair AIO units use, therefore meaning that the thumbscrew itself is "universally" usable on AIO retention systems...here's hoping!

What I was wanting to find out, from someone who knows firsthand, is whether the thread on the AMD 4 stud that mounts ot the motherboard, is a standard [M4 Metric] thread that is found on Intel studs as well; and whether the "collar" that is around that bottom thread on the AMD 4 studs, is fixed to the stud or if it is free to rotate around the stud and is simply 'held captive' on the stud? Hope the question makes more sense...
