Sandy Bridge E HSF

Hi all, one thing to note with any future Sandy Bridge E LGA2011 based processors, they will not ship with Stock Heat Sink Fan units. You will have to purchase an aftermarket HSF.

Hmm.. I don't overclock, and usually buy in matched kits, so I can't see it being that much of an issue, at least in my little sheltered world. But I wonder, do you suppose that will make the processors any cheaper?

Probably not. I don't think many people buy a Sandy Bridge for the heatsink anyway.

Nah on all counts. The LGA 2011 mobos at the mo are around 230 quid average. The stock coolers are ok for normal PC users, but as Tag has touched upon, most are discarded in favour for an Artic Cooler and such like. Intel probably decided not too bother as the heat issue needs sorting before Ivy Bridge E
