Obviously, AMD wouldn't have the balls to give a 3-year warranty with their boxed sets if the HSF weren't able to handle the heat. And quite as obviously, they are going to save as much dough as possible by sending the HSF setup that will work at the recommended temps.
But it also seems funny that I can't seem to find a clue anywhere about who manufactures their HSF. Maybe they do it in-house? I doubt it. But their site doesn't have any info, and countless e-mails remain unanswered. Point being, I am definitely satisfied with the ease of buying a CPU that comes with a recommended fan and warranty, but my curious nature begs me to ask.
WHO IN THE HELL MAKES THE HSF?
Thanks for the replies.
