  1. The retail CPU includes the fan and the heatsink.

    Nothing is as easy as it looks
  2. 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

    Nothing is as easy as it looks
  3. Retail has 3 year warrenty, I'm not sure what the OEM one has - but it is not 3 years.

  4. Boxed comes with a cooler and with 3 year warranty.
  5. Did you read the above posts?! :tongue:
