No stock cooler with Sandy Bridge-E

Written by Slobodan Simic

To be sold seperately
According to a post over at VR-Zone, it appears that Intel won't ship its stock cooler with Sandy Bridge-E but rather sell them seperately. This sounds like a good idea, especially for an enthusiast part such as Sandy Bridge-E, as most users will simply go for third-party cooling solution.

The upcoming Intel Core i7-3960X Extreme Edition, Core i7-3930K and Core i7-3820 will not be shipping as now already standard "boxed" model that features a stock cooler, but rather as a tray with optional stock cooler that will be sold seperately. This could somewhat lower the price of these models but also give more room to enthusiasts as they won't end up with an unused stock cooler as they often go for more hefty third-party coolers as well as some water-cooling systems.

There has been quite a few benches of Sandy Bridge-E engineering samples and although they are rated at 130W TDP they have quite some room for additional overclocking that will of course raise the TDP even higher.

Of course, we expect most, if not all, companies to come up with their own LGA2011 solutions once these CPUs launch.

wow, that is pretty stupid if you ask me. yes of course if you buy an extreme processor you are more than MORE than more than likely to buy an aftermarket cooler, BUT those little dinky coolers must cost intel 50 cents to make! i would like to have the stock cooler as a back up for emergencies or if i ordered my cooler and it hasn't arrived in the mail and wanna build my pc while i wait or put on another rig that is maybe missing a few parts etc etc etc...if amd does in fact put liquid coolers in with their FX chips and price them between 300 and 500, intel is smurfed.

Good move from craptel, including a piece of aluminium that will never be used is a good thing to keep lower shipping cost and less polution...that is fermi work, leave global warming for nvidia.

I'm tired of intel-nvidia trolls, reading your bipolar posts is a complete waste of time.

Your job it's done.

Everybody knows you are a looser faggot, with no life.

Bro-dickhead even your nick is complete rubish.

According to the VR-Zone link in this article, these processors can consume 180w without overclocking them. They can't just put the normal nickel HSF on them so INTEL are leaving it out to keep from raising the price.

Yea, stock coolers never get used with high end CPUs. It's a waste and extra cost.

You never see fansinks shipped with server parts costing in excess of a grand so no big loss here. Though I did like taking the usually beefier stock cooler and tossing it on lower end chips since those CPUs come with really lame stock coolers.
