I am a n00b planning to assemble my first PC. I have narrowed on AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition processor. However somewhere on the forums I read that AMD processors do not ship with Heat sinks. Do I need to buy a separate heat sink. If so which one should I buy. I do not plan to overclock the processor.

If you buy the retail (or boxed) version then yes it will come with a heatsink. Just don't buy an oem or tray item, they do no come with heatsinks.

I highly recommend this heat sink with OCZ Freeze thermal grease. I had the stock heatsink and my temps at idle were in the low 40's and under load low 60's With this your temps will drop 10 to 15c. I'm now running at idle 26-30c. and under load 50c.
