Skylake will not come with cooling fan

The latest Intel Skylake platform is almost ready for its launch in August – we have seen the new Z170 Express chipset, we know that Intel will unveil two Skylake models, we have seen the first LGA 1151 motherboards and we even know the chips that we will get on August 7 this year – Core i5-6600K and Core i7-6700K.

Well, there’s something that we don’t know and this news will surprise you – the new Intel Skylake processors will come for the first time with no cooling fan included. This, of course, is true for the boxed versions only and will likely apply to the aforementioned flagship models but still it is a first for Intel. These Skylake processors will need a cooler and this is where Intel steps in – the company will offer two new coolers – the first one will come with a tower design, while the second one will be a liquid cooler. Both coolers will be able to handle processors with TDP of up to 130W (Skylake will come with TDP of 95W) so there will be room for overclocking. The reason for this move is simple – Intel believes that the Core i5-6600K and Core i7-6700K will be purchased by overclockers who do not use the stock cooler anyway.

As a side note there’s information that the LGA 1151 socket will allow the installation of LGA 1150 coolers so if you have a good LGA 1150 cooler you might be able to use it too.
