unlocked means you have the ABILITY TOO overclock, not pre done

Very important. It fill the minuscule gaps in the CPU's and Heatsink's surfaces to increase the thermal conductivity.

No, an unlocked version is one with an unlocked CPU multiplier that allows far superior overclocking.

Only if you decide to overclock. Unlocked just means you can up the multiplier when oc'ing instead of just bus speed. Makes it easier to OC that is all. At stock it is at stock though period.

Edit: Your PSU is fine for now. Unless you have too (OCN style) OC the heck out of that already super fast chip (even at stock) then upgrade your PSU when you decide to do that. For now just enjoy the speed of your new computer!! (Much faster then mine!)

Oh I'm sure It would run the rig just fine. But it would be loud and output dirty power. They included it because it was cheap, and that is the only reason. They don't even give a combined +12v rail rating, a common sign of a dishonest label. basically, that is a crappy 400w unit with a 600w label stuck on it. All I'm saying is if it works for you, great. But keep some money on the side if and when the thing bites the dust.

 

Intel "prints" the thermal paste on in three lines like this:

Here is my heatsink. Is the grey stuff the thermal paste? It's hard to tell because it's not spread out across the whole thing, and it doesn't look very much like a gel. It looks more like rubber.
