    I don't remember when I last bought a CPU in anything other than a tiny cardboard box with some foam in and the model scrawled on in marker pen. I do remember finding an old OEM heat sink that had never been used and throwing it away, thinking it was such a waste.

    Retail packaging = loads of space for marketing purposes (ooh, big box = lots of thing!) and costs money in design, transportation, storage and shipping. It also means a load of wasted plastic (How DARE YOU!) and pointless bits inside.

    I strongly think they should go down the route of excluding a heat sink unless someone orders one with the product and ridding themselves of this oversized packaging nonsense. Of course, if they didn't keep changing the socket specs, people wouldn't need a new heat sink!

    How are your feelings on the included little case sticker?

    Mind you, in the 90's we had proper domed case stickers, not the 2D things you get these days.
