cooler master hyper 212 LGA 1700 bracket

Does anyone know where i can find this bracket. Seems to be all sold out. How is the cooler master hyper 212 not compatible with the new intel gen 12 stuff yet.

I have a feeling that cooler master just rushed the LGA 1700 bracket cause i seen alot of people complaining they are breaking. That's probably why they are so hard to find.

Doesn't appear all versions of Hyper 212 will support LGA 1700. Looks like only the V2 and the various Black Editions, Hyper 212 ARGB, Hyper 212 Spectrum V2 and Hyper 212 LED Turbo ARGB, will have LGA1700 kits. I know for a fact Hyper 212 have at least 2 versions of mountings throughout it's history, maybe more.

Don’t use any old coolers with LGA 1700

1. There may not be enough surface area for the wider CPU
2. Old coolers are designed for 14 nm, the new CPU is 10 nm, the mount on the cooler will not make good contact with the CPU because of the fixed height of the push pins

Most LGA 1700 motherboards have dual mount for LGA 1200/1151 coolers and LGA 1700, but I don’t suggest you use LGA 1200/1151 coolers for the reasons listed above

What I do recommend is that you use a closed loop water cooler. These usually have screws for you clamp onto the CPU which ensures good contact from the heatsink to the CPU
