Processor heatsinks and fans

  Charlie 17:19 07 Aug 03

I am about to buy an Athlon 3000+ and would like to know if these processors come complete with fan and heatsink. If not could someone please tell me what I need!! Many thanks. Cannot seem to find out from web sites.

The retail version usualy does, OEM is cheaper, and sometimes does not include the sink and fan. j.

If you buy the retail pack it comes with heat sink and fan + 3 year waranty.
If oem no fan less warranty.
The retail version isnt much more than oem at the mo so unless you are after a better fan it may be best to go for retail.

Thanks. I was thinking of buying it from Dabs but they take 8 days to reply to questions!! Would theirs be a retail version do you think?
