Just put together a new build- 9700K with TRUE Spirit 140 Power. The cooler included a plastic spacer for use with 1151 sockets. No matter what I tried, I couldn't get the retaining plate to close with the spacer on the CPU. From what I've read, the spacer became necessary because Skylake CPU was thin and prone to bending. Does the 9700K have the same issue? Is this a non-issue? I left it out because no matter what I tried, the plate would not close when trying to use the spacer. Thanks!
