ehansen1968, Thank you very much for joining the Intel® Processors communities.
To answer your question, normally this model of processor came with a cpu fan and that is the way we recommend to use it. Even though the case has 3 fans the processor should include and use a cpu fan on it to work properly.
Any further questions, please let me know.
Thank you Alberto...I unsealed my processor and there it was the cpu fan. The part of the box its in I previously opened only looked like a metal heat sink without cpu fan. My medication for my illness affects my eyesight sometimes. Anyway thanks again
