Hello,

I am going to buy the AMD Phenom II x2 550 but i have a few questions:
When is it coming out? or has it come out?
Does it come with a heat sink and thermal paste?
How do i upgrade/install a CPU?

Sorry if i have posted this in the wrong area.i didnt know where to post it.

It's already out.
All box CPUs have heat sink with thermal paste.
You remove heat sink of the old one, then pull up the lever and remove the CPU, insert the new one, pull the lever back and put the new heat sink (this one is fixed with clamps).

If you motherboard BIOS is outdated, flash to latest that supports P2X2 550, shut down and then change CPU
