As posted to the Chiphell forums by kthlon, a new mounting mechanism for Socket AM4 processors, including AMD’s venerable Ryzen series, has appeared that prevents the processor from ‘sticking’ to the cooler when you remove it. Though the product hasn’t made it to the U.S. market yet, it also comes in Noctua- and Thermaltake-compatible flavors.

While the AM4 socket is perhaps the longest-lived socket in x86 history, supporting more chips than we can recall from any other single socket, it does have one annoying tendency–When you remove a cooler, the chip can become stuck to the cooling plate due to a suction-like effect created by the thermal interface material (TIM). This results in the chip being pulled from the pin grid array (PGA) socket even though the socket arm is still firmly latched in a ‘closed’ position.
