See the paragraph on coolers...
The Hyper 212 cooler I have now would need a new base plate to be able to handle the wider spaced cooler holes
that or break out the metal working tools and file a piece of steel down to size

Pretty comprehensive list, and it's being updated as manufacturers respond. Also it's not just the manufacturer but the model, as some Cooler Master coolers will not get the upgrade. Oddly 2 products from Corsair will already fit AM4.
According to Corsair , the following AiO watercoolers are already AM4 compatible: Corsair Hydro H60 (CWCH60) Corsair Hydro Series H100 (CWCH100) For the rest of the portfolio, a Bracket is being planned to upgrade AM4 compatibility. Under what conditions this is provided, however, is still not clarified.

I was pondering a bigger cooler or maybe a AIO water cooler but I will await to see what surfaces
Cooler master will have a kit in march, according to the German link
Corsair now has Socket AM4 brackets available for free, plus free shipping: ARE YOU READY FOR RYZEN?

I called them, the customer service rep said there is no problem, it's just because it was a preorder that it's on hold until March 2nd.

Antec to Offer Cooler Upgrade Kits For AMD's Ryzen and AM4 Platform | techPowerUp
The upgrade kits will be available for Antec's CPU cooler models H600 Pro, H1200 Pro, C400, C40 as well as A40 Pro and will be part of the scope of delivery with all new and coming CPU coolers. In order to obtain the kits via Antec's Support Team (Europe.RMA@antec.com), users are required to fill in a form, upload a proof of purchase (electronic version, scan or photo of the invoice) of an AM4 motherboard or AM4 CPU as well as an eligible Antec retail CPU cooler.
A bit more complicated than Corsair's "enter a promo code" process, and you can't get it until you get an AM4 motherboard, but at least they're offering it.
