Cooling fan for AMD 6100 Fx CPU

Hey (this is for most all cpus)

in the 6100 and most all cpus it says

"Heatsink and fan included"

Newegg.com - AMD FX-6100 Zambezi 3.3GHz Socket AM3+ 95W Six-Core Desktop Processor FD6100WMGUSBX

Why do I see so many people getting cpu fans then? is the included fan too cheap? do I need to get an amd cpu heat sink fan?

Most cpus seem to have heat sink included so why by a separate one except for extreme overclocking?

1. They don't do an adequate job of cooling for many people, even with moderate gaming.
2. They may not be quiet enough for a HTPC.
