Have a new build that requires a square AM4 bracket what to do ?
Check with the manufacturer of the water block / cooling system.
Already did that and they just kept telling me that they don't have an
adapter for that cooling system - emailed them 3 x with regards to getting
any answer - no luck
The company was Deep Cool and the case a really nice cpu water cooling
system installed in it - the case is the genome case - has adapters all the
way up to AM4 but no TR4 adapter - admitted to them that I didn't read the
specs close enough and they just kept telling me that they don't have one
and I even asked if they could point me in the right direction and no reply
so I am at a loss because the case looks awesome and I have never had this
nice of a build but what is stopping me is the bracket issue - WHAT TO DO ?
It's also not necessary to cover the entire block.
Thats good to know thought you HAD to cover the whole block - just a really
new build for me with some changes in the technology - used to the cpu
THANKS ! Will figure out and thanks for the advice !
GamersNexus did a couple of good articles on it

AMD Threadripper Thermal Paste Application Methods Tested | GamersNexus - Gaming PC Builds & Hardware Benchmarks
Threadripper is about the only example I can think of of when the stock TIM needs to be removed and replaced as the small center circle doesn't adequately cover it, but the other methods do. The good thing is that since AMD uses Indium solder instead of thermal paste like Intel, and since the two interposers draw heat away towards them, there's no reason to worry about heat.
And as we know from Threadripper overclocking articles, a regular Corsair CLC is quite adequate (I believe they're using a Corsair H105)
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X review - Overclocking Your Ryzen Threadripper processor
Here is an example of the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X at 4000 MHz @ all cores. Here the LCS cooler seems to run fine in the ~80 Degrees C range overclocked (again that is 16 cores). AMD claims the Tdie score is the actual score, so you can deduct 27 Degrees C off that temperature.
