The retail CPU includes the fan and the heatsink.

Retail is the way to go if you're not overclocking.
If you are overclocking you might wanna go with OEM because you're gonna end buying a better heatsink for the CPU

Retail has 3 year warrenty, I'm not sure what the OEM one has - but it is not 3 years.
