If its coming included in the price then why not? Alot better than the junk that comes with the i5/i7's

LOL. Weren't the initial Overclocks people were getting ON THE STOCK COOLERS?!

Crazy stuff. Whatever AMD needs to do, they should do it. I just hope Bulldozer is BLAZING. If not, oh well... OEM's will still buy it.

What an interesting turn of events we have here!

Is the chip running a little too hot or are they asking us Enthusiast to OC the hell out of it?

Or is this just something cool they wanna do to Show Up Intel?? (Which have always been super skimpy on the stock coolers, meh!)

Hmmmm....

Subpar comapred to what? A custom loop? Yes. To a piddly little stock nitel/amd heatsink? Absolutely not.

Goodbye, air cooling. Won't miss you.

Have you seen all the rumored clock speeds on these chips? They're awfully high, and a possible reason is because they have a great cooling solution that comes with the chip.

If they made a water cooling solution the default cooler for the chips, and their warranty covered the cooler with the chip, that would mean they could push the clocks much higher than if they were on a cheapo air cooler.

So, if this were the case, Bulldozer probably wouldn't overclock all too much higher than its stock clock, considering the factory clocks are already set so high.

Bulldozer would be quite reliant on clock speed for its performance... unless they overclock like a monster (like in the 5.5-6.0Ghz range on water, a Sandy Bridge chip with its state of the art IPC and already spectacular overclockabilty is likely to be the better choice for overclockers.

However, for people that don't overclock or buy an OEM computer with a locked bios, it could very well be a great win for AMD. If they can bring that kind of stock performance, they would be the performance king for most consumers.

But, this is all speculation.

i overclocked my cpu to 3.52 ghz max temps i get are 52C and that's with the stock black edition cooler with heat pipes, AMD's coolers are actually quite good.

I was also debating whether to get the h80 with bulldozer, but it seems i probably wont have to fork out any more money for that ^^.

I see no mention of any source at all in that whole article,so this is indeed a rumour-not worth even thinking about.

Not hating, but lets not forget the whole Phenom Era. AMD chips are synonymous with not having a high heat tolerance. My 720BE & 1055T both hated anything over 60c, and even with water were difficult to keep cool.

Also, I hope that they're not like the current CPU's in which they come stock with higher Clock Rates, but maintain the same OC'ing headroom, which isn't that great.

Sounds like a typical marketing gimmick, i.e. include something that shouts "performance" to differentiate your product from "regular" products. If they really want to cater to the "enthusiast" crowd they should sell their CPU's with no cooler at all and chop a couple bucks off of the price tag.
