What has happened with this launch? never known anything like it. I have a new CPU and coming and you can't actually buy a cooler that works out of the box!
Surely its so simple to supply stand offs that reduce the height by 1mm to enable proper contact.
I now have an 18 month old Corsair AIO cooler all fitted in an existing build and I cant even use it when the new kit arrives bloody infuriating and now I'm going to have to buy an NZXT cooler and refit kit.
Corsair are a big let down here!
I think the Noctua NH-D15 would still suffice for the 12900k, on a compatible board. Its too bad it doesn't work with Asus ROG Strix boards so if you are on one of those, yes only water cooling can be usedAre all these cpu's water cooled exclusively ? Just seems like another expensive requirement.
I'd really like to upgrade my i7 4790 to either a 12700 or 12900 but this is getting silly.
asus trying to stand out from other motherboard manufacturers by making all their z690 boards compatible with socket 1200 coolers.Have u guys noticed the twin mounting holes for coolers on the ASUs boards

clever if they done it right
potentially dangerous if the different socket height causes issues on existing coolers.
