    While it sounds good in practice, and for someone like me who probably won't pay that much anyway (having a boxed cooler that is half decent, included with the cpu sounds a better deal), for the people who will really spend that much, they'll probably buy their own custom cooler anyway, and so this will be a waste, and in effect make the cpu more expensive than it would have been.

    How will a non-bundled cooler make the CPU more expensive?
