Serious now I am :)

Good article, in German with pics, discussing Skylake warping:

For those of you not already aware there appears to be issues regarding warping on Skylake CPUs when using some aftermarket CPU coolers. The substrate used on the new Skylake process is significantly thinner than previous generation CPUs and as such some CPU coolers that use excessive pressure to hold in place are warping Skylake CPUs and causing system failures and instability.

If you have made the jump to Skylake then be very careful what coolers you use. Many manufacturers have listed Skylake compliance on their cooling products so be sure you use one that meets Intel's mechanical specification.
