    ok I just bought the AMD fx-8350 from here http://www.msy.com.au/product.jsp?productId=9742

    For the life of me, i'v got no idea if it comes with:
    1. a heatsinc / Cooler of some sort
    2. Thermal paste (im assuming it probably comes pre applied if there is a heatsinc)

    I'm sure you guys could tell me straight away, and usually i would assume a cpu would come with a heatsinc. It's just that I'v heard of some cpu's not coming with one because there "extreme" and its assumed your buying an aftermarket cooler.. well there right, i will be watercooling it, but just not yet...


    So if anyone can confirm or deny, I shall thank you enternaly
    and if it comes with anything else? free stuff is always exciting


    Thanks

    Yes, it should come with a cooler since it's the boxed retail model instead of the OEM model.

    Yes, Boxed AMD FX processors come with a reference cooler and thermal-paste preapplied to the cooler.

    But I'm thinking you've not considered your options if you're buying into the FX series at this point. Plus the stock AMD heatsink is a loud beast, so prepare to use earplugs.

    Thank you,

    I will be building a water-cooling loop for it in a month or two.. i just wanted to make sure i could run it before then, so noise doesn't bother me ;)


    im interested as to why your thinking i havent considered my options.. The build will mainly be used for rendering 3d scenes/animation/videos.. For the price point, 8 cores at such a clock speed (will oc when watercooling is installed) and benchmarks (especially in the field im interested in) to back it up, i thought it was a good decision. What is your opinon?
