I've just ordered one of these CPUs but have suddenly realised that i may need to buy a heatsink and fan. I've ordered the retail version but was wondering whether a heatsink and/or fan is included with it or if i should invest a little more in a good one seperately.
IF by "retail" you mean the boxed version, then indeed it comes with a cooler. Those coolers are rather decent as well, certainly good enough if you don't intend to do any hardcore overclocking. WHy don't you try it before ordering a new one?

I wasn't planning on overclocking it, at least just yet. Haven't really read much about overclocking so i will do a bit more research on it before ricking damaging a CPU like this. Cost me too uch for that kinda risk
Some people do have money, you know! If there were 0 market for these things then they might not exist...but there is a very slight market (therefore they do exist and can be purchased).
Maxtor disgraces the six letters that make Matrox.
Even if there was a 0% market we would still see them.
Those CPU are like a showcase...But in the end some ppl(rich enough) buy them so its all good =).
Altough I dont think I would buy one even if I was rich enough and had some money to burn. Since its not the case I cant say for sure tough hehe
