Default question about fans

does the 3700+ have a heatsink and a fan or do you have to buy your own

All the retail CPU's do, but OEM doesn't. The stock heatsink isn't great anyway, so if you can spare a bit of cash in the budget get a all copper heatsink. If not then make it a upgrade for the future.

Well, what is your price range? I think this is the best air cooler: http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...=ZALMAN%20TECH

This will need a 120mm fan added on top of the [rice: http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...e=THERMALRIGHT

This is very good: http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...=ZALMAN%20TECH

And this is also good: http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...=ZALMAN%20TECH
