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.                                                                                                                                                                                 


Technical ignorance is NOT a destiny it is a choice. Do your homework so that you can make technically informed decisions and not be duped by advertising hype or mis-information stated as fact when its not.

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
