I'd say yes. You'd be safer going with it, so just do it.

Always need a fan on those. The new processors NEED a fan. I think the first pentiums were the cpu's to first need fans. And ever since than, a cpu cannot run without one.

Need a case fan or two? Sorry to be such a salesman:

Well, I think the mac minis are passivly cooled, and many laptops have passivly cooled processors. But, if you are looking to overclock, a fan is a must.
