Nope, but since most of these processors on the market right now are OEM/tray that means that they wont come with a HSF. Without a new Intel® HSF with the thermal paste preapplied to the HSF, it is just a friendly reminder to help you get your system up and running as fast as possible. The temp on the Intel Core™ 2 Duo E6700 is very low at 60.1c.

i have this problem with my CPU (intel P4 H, 3.00Ghz)at the moment, Bios reads Processor heat as 99C most of time, recently i replace this thermal paste but nothing change and in that moment i have notice something, my Processor was no heat at all when i plug it, after few minutes its again 99C but CPU runs fine, some times its run 12hs or more.
i feel my heat sensors not working properly
do you have any idea what is happened there ?

ive got the e7600 and to be honest, its quick but i kind of would recomend people to get a cheap socket 1155 motherboard

motherboard £70
i3 cpu £92
8gb ddr3 £80

so for £242 you can get a better sandy bridge pc that you can allways upgrade to a i5 2500 or i7 2600 at a later date

this is better than spending £62 on new cpu

£180 difference for complete new pc

i upgraded at the start of last year and my computer is not a whole lot faster i think
becasue it is bottlenecked by my ram and hardrive (3gb ddr3 and 2tb hdd)
