¿Peligran los procesadores LGA1151? Con algunos disipadores sí

De acuerdo con la web alemana PCGamesHardware.de, los disipadores para CPU que ejerzan mucha presión sobre los procesadores Intel para el socket LGA1151, léase Skylake, podrían dañar tanto el procesador como el socket.

El posible daño tiene lugar cuando la presión que ejerce el disipador sobre el procesador es capaz de doblar los pines del socket, pudiendo dañar tanto este último como la CPU. La causa está en un mayor grosor del PCB que da forma a los nuevos procesadores Intel Skylake, aunque algunas compañías no han tardado en lanzar comunicados al respecto.

Aunque os dejamos el comunicado oficial de ellas a continuación, como resume para los que no dominen el inglés podríamos decir que las compañías están al corriente del problema y que en el caso de Scythe se puede solicitar un nuevo juego de tornillos que ejercen menor presión sobre el procesador, en el de Noctua aseguran que su sistema SecuFirm2 descarga la presión sobrante del procesador evitando dañar el PCB y Arctic asegura también que sus disipadores no están afectados y que no hay ningún riesgo de daño. Por otro lado EKWB, el fabricante de sistemas de refrigeración líquida, garantiza también la completa compatibilidad de sus sistemas con las CPUs Intel Skylake.Disipador CPU dañando una CPU Intel LGA1151 Skylake


“The company Scythe EU GmbH announces that on several coolers from its portfolio, a change of the mounting system for Skylake / plinth is made ​​1151stAll coolers are in fact generally compatible with Skylake sockets, but it can in some cases result in damage to CPU and motherboard when the PC is exposed to stronger shocks (eg shipping or relocation). To prevent this, the pressure was reduced by an adjustment of the screw set. We will send the new set of screws you also like to charge. Please send your request via email to support@scythe.com or use the contact form on our website (http://www.scythe-eu.com/support/technische-anfragen.html).”



“Our SecuFirm2 mounting systems are subjected to prior to the release of new platforms an extensive compatibility testing. It could be determined with reference to the Intel LGA1151 platform (“Skylake”) no problems. Also on the part of our customers and our specialist resellers and system integration partners we have no reports of any problems. Our SecuFirm2 mounting systems access (with the exception of some more compact models of the L-series) for generating the necessary contact pressure on coil springs back, which allow a certain degree of flexibility both in terms of tolerances in the height as well as the case of vibrations or other forces. Compared with conventional spring-less installation systems where pressure is produced exclusively by the deformation of the mounting brackets, so can reduce the mechanical load on the CPU, and motherboard socket and any damage can be prevented by excessive force.”



“All EK Water Blocks EK-Supremacy Series CPU Water Blocks – Including the latest -MX and -EVO variants – are fully Complying with Intel Socket imposed H3 (LGA-1151) Mechanical force limitation. The clamping force, created by our PreciseMount spring loaded mounting mechanism, is well within the allowed mechanical limitations. The design of PreciseMount itself Prevents over-tightening and damage to mechnical Possible Either socket or the CPU packaging.

Older generation of (physically) compatible LGA-1151 Water Blocks with classic, undefined clamping ForceType mouting mechanism such as Supreme LTX – requires special attention When attaching the water block. As a result the use of search Waterblocks is not recommended with the LGA-1151 socket CPUs.”



“With this official statement we would like to assure that ARCTIC coolers are not affected by these problems – and thus fully Skylake compatible. All ARCTIC CPU Coolers complies concerning the released sockets with the mechanical specification from Intel. With our coolers there are no problems on Intel CPUs of the 6th generation (Skylake) for LGA 1151. Depending on the parcel service drop heights of over 2 m can not be excluded. Therefore we recommend regardless of the CPU used to carefully evaluate the dispatch and the packaging used and to possibly mount larger and heavier CPU coolers by the end user.”
