AMD's AM4 socket will not be compatible with old CPU coolers

It looks like old AM3+ compatible CPU coolers will not fit on AMD's upcoming AM4 CPU socket, making it difficult to use older CPU coolers on the new platform.



Read more on AMD's AM4 socket.

Anything using the old AMD clip mounting system could still work (the clips don't move that much), hard to know ATM.

Only ever used Intel with mine so not sure what's in the box, will have to go find it in the recesses of the cellar

Well that sucks, unless CM has a mail in adapter I might have to get a new cooler if I upgrade

Yup. Probably my favourite company of PC parts of ever tbh. They're just so lovely to deal with.

You might pay for their coolers but you literally get a lifetime of support.

BeQuiet have said some of their coolers will be getting mounting kits. I emailed them asking earlier and that's what they've come back with. Also they also said they can't say anything exact until CES 2017.
