Intel issues vague comment about Skylake CPU bending

Last week news spread about how some CPU coolers may damage Intel's Skylake processor. This new chip uses a thinner substrate than previous generations, which can apparently cause bending issues when used in combination with high-pressure coolers.

Legit Reviews received the following, somewhat vague, reply from Intel. It basically shoves responsibility to the CPU cooling manufacturers:
“The design specifications and guidelines for the 6th Gen Intel Core processor using the LGA 1151 socket are unchanged from previous generations and are available for partners and 3rd party manufacturers. Intel can’t comment on 3rd party designs or their adherence to the recommended design specifications. For questions about a specific cooling product we must defer to the manufacturer.”
