Re: Retail boxed cpu and heatsink?

Originally posted by tlemaste
I'm asking for a friend of mine (and for my own knowledge too), when you buy a retail boxed cpu which includes the heatsink does the heatsink come attached to the cpu? I wouldn't think so, but I've never bought a retailed cpu. I'm sure that some of you have run across this at some time. Thanks a bunch.
The current crop of CPU design requires that the HSF is mounted to the mobo somehow. Therefore, they are not attached in the box. You still have the same work to install the cpu and HSF to the mobo.
