In my view you shouldn't need to spend extra on top of your hundreds to stop something from bending!.

I agree with you 100%, but I already ordered the proper socket 1151 fix for my Scythe Cooler's mounting system.

Look at the pic at the top of this post.
The new Skylake PCBs are much thinner than previous generation Intel CPUs.

Some CPU coolers are breaking these thinner PCBs (usually the corners) when installing or during movement of the completed system. (Shock)

lmao I've seen people picking peanuts out of poo to try and save money but that comparison shot is just wrong.

Why would you make a PCB so damn thin?
