And now I can breathe a sigh of relief, was getting worried I was going to have all the hardware but no cooler to that will fit

I don't think that would be the case. I think that if Corsair are not making a bracket for it right now it could be simply that it's not good enough to cool a 8c 16t chip.

I put a H60 on my FX 8320 once. Honestly? it was no better than the stock cooler. Could not even manage the 3.7ghz stock all 8 core boost without throttling.

Changed that to a H100, got another ghz+ out of it.

These are not low end entry level CPUs. They are the big boys so will need sufficient cooling.

That is very interesting HOWEVER 8320 is 125W cpu really. Not sure where you live that makes you assume everybody buys 400dollar cpus but in reality the 6 core and quad ones will sell more in volume. Yet they still need to have cooler attached right?
H45 is actually better performance wise than H60 according to any website, due to a much much bigger pump mounted on radiator and not the tiny one on cpu block. Its currently sitting on an i7 2600k @ 4,45Ghz and i never saw the temperature reach 50C.
Still, corsair supports H60 but not higher performing H45.
If u dont know what is company about its always money. So instant assumption is H45 got left out because it is in some regions 50% cheaper than h60

And they may launch as late as September so you are probably worrying over nothing.

Not sure where you live that makes you be rude when some one is trying to help you though.

Then wait and see what happens, no? Just because Corsair haven't immediately released an adaptor for it does not mean that they aren't.

Personally speaking if I were you I would do some research and see what other Corsair AIOs are made with the same pump/block as yours.

You may find that Corsair already have one available. It's very rare for them to use a single design on a single cooler.

H55 is better than the H60. Totally different manufacturer for a start.

Here you go dude

http://www.corsair.com/en-gb/am4-amd...series-coolers

The Corsair website automatically defaults to US/Canada but there's the drop down list in the bottom left to change region

Also I don't think WYP mentioned in the article, you need to sign up for a Corsair account for the code to work otherwise it won't. Also if you get an "order on hold pending further review" email don't worry, I've already called and they said it's because it's not shipping until tomorrow
