Default YAQ (Yet Another Question)

Thanks for being so quick about replying, and helpful everyone! I appreciate your help!!!

I was wondering if this CPU had a heatsink and fan included, it says OEM Package, which probably means no Heatsink/Fan, but further down it says Retail? What do you think guys? It wont be a biggie for me to buy one, anyway.

Package: OEM

Package: Retail

you're right, oem does not come with a cooler, cpu only.

but i see what you mean, it says oem but it also says retail. if you don't mind spending some more on an aftermarket cooler, then i would just play it safe and buy another one.

even if the package does come with the stock one, an aftermarket cooler is still a good investment.

I'll probably just order it, wait till it comes in, see if it has a cooler, and if it doesn't, i'll buy one from somewhere.

Which cooler do u recommend?

less than $30

btw, it needs to be low profile so it can fit in this itx case: Newegg.com - Foxconn R10-G3 Supports 65W for Intel Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Duo processors Intel Socket T(LGA775) Intel G31 Intel GMA 3100 Barebone

and again, this is the processor...
