    Are you sure it will be boxed with Haswell-E?
    Normally the "-E" lines don't come with a cooler.
    It is the stock cooler, just not boxed with the processors as far as i know.

    I like to keep one of these things around for emergencies.

    Too bad you can't just stack them together to make a MEGA VOLTRON HEATSINK.

    They should have left the stock cooler the way it was and give the buyers a discount of a few quid, since I wouldn't see anybody using it except in the uttermost emergency.

    Well I give Intel an A for effort because they are not using those stupid push pin coolers that they have been using I think some time during the socket 775 era. We will have to wait and see how effective these new coolers are compared to the standard haswell and devils canyon coolers. I think they will be more effective.

    Agreed - I always keep my heatsinks, including ones from defective motherboards and power supplies. I have a small drawer full of different kinds. It's not just good for emergencies but once in a while I get a CPU that never came with a heatsink (or it was for a BTX board where they use different mounts). Once in a while I encounter a board where the northbridge is just a little too hot and I think "hmm, I better replace this". I also sometimes use them for other non-PC related projects.

    Not only that, I always use stock coolers to test the system before installing custom water cooling blocks.

    I am hoping that Intel will use similar coolers for their Broadwell CPUs and what ever the Sky one is called.

    People buying Haswell-E's are not going to mind the extra cost.

    Always good to have a backup plug-n-play cooler that's garunteed to fit.

    Not going to do 5GHz+ with it. At least it's not like the scrap metal that comes with AMD processors.

    I always use my heatsinks for high powered LED's or TEC projects :D

    Or the Haswell/Devils Canyon CPUs. I have seen pictures of those and they look horrendous.

    I've never installed a water block but if I were, I can definitely see that as being good practice.

    lol, they should bundle non heatsink, i think i never installed any of their stock heatsinks ever, they're crap as hell, if they could cut the price off a little bit shipping their CPUs without the heatsink it would be a brilliant move, the funny thing is they use to request serial number of heatsink for RMA, as if their heatsink were the ultimate cooling solution on planet earth

    So, they package a cooler that is 20 cents more expensive (I'm probably grossly overestimating that!) that nobody will use, most likely as an excuse to charge an extra $50 for the CPU claiming it's because of the new cooler. The new CPU's are probably cheaper to make, so it potentially just harmonises the price with the older CPU's.

    they could save themselves and us alot of money by just not inculding this garbage especialy with the k models. They could reduce a ton of weight and space for shipping and we wouldnt be stuck with garbage.
