Nope, you won't need that stuff.

If you are planning on overclocking, I would suggest getting a different heatsink as the stock one cannot handle the excess heat generated by an overclocked CPU.

I would suggest getting this cooler: XIGMATEK Dark Knight-S1283V

That HS and retention bracket work well
It took me 2 hours to figure out the bracket went on the back though..don't ask what I was doing :x

That retention bracket is for LGA775. Xigmatek don't currently have an LGA1366 available. The Thermalright bracket may work (the 775s did).

EDIT: Oh wait, yeah they do: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835233028

Problem solved, I guess

True all the way.

Also alot of HSFs come with Thermal Grease for example I know that the thermalright 120 black comes with Arctic Cooling MX-2 but its always best to check though.

For something as hot as an i7, I'd really consider the TRUE for overclocking.

the Xigmatek linked earlier is just as good or even better than the TRUE in performance at almost half the price, a no brainer imo, but people have their preferences so it's just up to you to decide which one you want, but at it's price point, the Xigmatek S1283 stomps the TRUE in price to performance ratio...

Price to performance yes, but not in performance.
@ OP, if you're just an amateur overclocker, the Xig. will be more than enough for you. If you're more experienced and serious, but don' want to shell out on watercooling, the TRUE is for you. Just make sure you lap it and strap a high RPM fan to it.

I guess like most reviews, it depends on the one you look at, they each beat the other by a slim margin depending on the positioning of the motherboard, horizontally the TRUE was better by 1C and vertically the S1283 was better by 2C in the review I posted, the TRUE also performs much better with AMD cpus than Intel cpus so that's another factor to consider...
