Intel Skylake K-series CPUs will not be boxed with the stock HSF

Posted on Friday, June 26 2015 @ 12:38:29 CEST by

Intel is expected to introduce its Skylake-S platform at the Gamescom show in early August. This K-series platform with unlocked multipliers is aimed at enthusiasts and it seems Intel has decided to no longer include its stock cooler with these chips.

The reason for this is quite simple, these chips are aimed at enthusiasts so the chip giant expects most users will use third-party solutions any way as these provide better cooling and/or lower noise.
Intel will be launching its Skylake micro-architecture shortly. The paper launch is expected to be held at Gamescom 2015 with the products hitting the shelves within a month or so. One thing that will change from past lineups is that the Skylake-S “K-Series” unlocked multiplier CPUs will not ship with a stock HSF. Rather, taking a leaf out of the HEDT book, Intel expects end users to use their own third party solutions (while giving the option of its own dedicated solutions).
