Default I'm not sure...

Do you need a heatsink if the processor comes with a fan?

If that comes with a fan then it'll have a heatsink as well.

It will probably already be on the heatsink, and you attach the entire HS+fan to the motherboard. I think anyway, that's how Intels are.

Its usually 1 piece. The fan will be attached to the HS and bolt onto the motherboard
