Some time ago there were people talking about how you could easily bend a 7700K while it's in the socket al;l because Intel was cheaping out on the PCB by making it thinner than it used to be. So the question is... do Coffee Lake chips still have this problem? Is bending still a problem?

I want to build a new system soon but I've been lately scared to death about building one because of this bending issue. I've built systems before, the one I'm on right now I built myself but that was before Intel went stupid with the thinner PCB.

Same "issue" is still there. Intel says CPU's are durable enough so there is nothing to fix.

 

If you are scared, you could buy AMD Ryzen system. It also has soldered HS and not toothpaste under HS.

what 'bending issue' is this?

 

One guy over-torques down a 4 kg heatsink somewhere on the planet, bends his heatspreader, and presto, it's a 'well known issue'? :)

 

Of is this the 'bending while delidding' usual caution?

 

(As for toothpaste...have the 2200G/2400G earned your wrath/non-recommend for AMD's cursed toothpaste, or, do they get some sort of 'Red pass' as pertains to toothpaste?)

Yes, AMD put toothpaste for around $100 CPU's. Still far from Intel's $1700 toothpaste CPU's...

People! get your facts straight!

It is not toothpaste. It must be Poligrip because that'll fill in the gaps!!!
