    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).

    Intel will be introducing the PCG 2015D high performance air and water cooling solutions seperately for enthusiasts that are interested in them. The processor itself will however not be boxed with any thermal cooling solution. Interestingly, the standard HSF (PCG 2013D) is capable of 90W heat dissipation while as the new air and water cooling solutions tagged as 2015 PCD are 130W TDP capable. This overhead over the noted TDP of 95W for SKL would allow a very comfortable headroom for most K series enthusiasts although there is still no equivalent for dedicated third party air or water cooling solutions.

    Yes, take them out of the bundle but it should lower the price too! 

    Less bundled products plus smaller packaging should really make savings for Intel.
