Does this box come with the heatsink and fan, or do I have to buy them separately? The box looks really thin to include everything.

Yeah, at 220w your going to need a heavy duty liquid cooler for that thing also since it is 220w cpu there's only three mobo's out there that can handle it. Asus's Crosshair V Formula-Z, Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD7 and ASRock 990FX Extreme9.


FX 8320// Asus Sabertooth R2.0 // HIS R9 280x //8Gb of 1866Mhz ram, H50 cooling, HX850W psu all stuffed into a NZXT Phantom case.

Those who already have or can find a discontinued Asrock 990FX Fatality mobo can also run the FX-9000 CPUs on it as it has almost the identical VRM design as the Extreme9 which is the replacement for the 990FX Fatality.                                                                                                                                                                                 


Building a reliable PC involves more than just assembling the parts. You need to be able to configure all of the BIOS settings appropriately. This can be quite involved and frustrating as it can require a lot of trial and error with stress testing. It is however often the only means to get a 100% reliable PC.

my chassis supports water, but I am not sure if my MB can tolerate that much power load 

maybe when 20nm or smaller gets into production then such a CPU can use less power

mind you overclocked to 4GHz is where my Phenom II X4 is operated at and its thermally stable because I use a high-end thermal interface material
