Ok cool. Honestly I didn't really know what the heat sink was for, other than to cool CPU, or why I would need one, but someone at another forum said that the i7 runs quote "Hot as balls" and I should get one. I wasn't planning on overclocking, so knowing that I don't need a heatsink will save me some money. Thanks
