MSI Intel Skylake



Most recently, the scandal broke, the essence of which was very simple: as it turned out, reducing the thickness of the housing textolite processors Skylake not get them good: there were reports of damaged sockets LGA 1151 processors and bending themselves when massive coolers. Failures occurred mainly during transportation, so quietly standing systems were not in danger. A Scythe has responded to the problem by releasing an improved fastening kit coolers LGA 1151. At the same time Intel has not officially changed digits maximum permissible load on the processor, which has remained equal to 22.5 kilograms, that is, as in Broadwell.
Bending indeed possible and it can be detrimental to the processor

Bending indeed possible, and it can be detrimental to the processor

With his decision made, and the company Micro-Star International, introducing a product called CPU GUARD 1151. The decision is quite radical and demanding the dismantling of all the mobile fastening system CPU into the socket LGA 1151, which it subsequently is replaced, rigidly fixing the processor and not giving it to bend in any direction. The processor is held in the new “harness” it is so hard that it is possible to see even with the cover removed heat spreader. The solution is compatible with all models of Skylake, from Celeron to the Xeon E3-1200 v5.

And those who still put the cover back on the effective thermal grease or liquid metal can not worry. The fastening system CPU GUARD 1151 will not prevent installation of heat spreader to its rightful place. The decision controversial, perhaps even without compromise. Also requires the user to the relevant proficiency tools and knows what he is talking. And certainly MSI CPU GUARD 1151 is not suitable for those who by occupation is often necessary to change the processor – the engineers, employees of test laboratories of computer media and so on.
