Default CPU Fan

Hello,

Today I ordered a Processor (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103289) and I just realized it didn't come with a cooling device. I'm guessing that is a fan and heat sink, could anyone show me a link from newegg of a cheap fan+heatsink, I'm not too familiar with computer parts yet... Thanks

This one is cheap and works well: Thermaltake TMG A3. I had one on the wife's machine. It's quiet and does a great job at keeping the CPU cool.

I was browsing through the Fan + Heatsink and I came across this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835185125, about the same price if I include the shipping on yours since this one has free shipping, which one would be better? Also, do I need to buy Thermal Paste as well?

That will be better.

Yea, that's a nice choice. You shouldn't need thermal paste as it's pre-applied.
