Historically we've listed mostly only boxed model CPUs, which with a few exceptions meant that the CPU packaging included the stock CPU cooler.
With the addition of the FX-9xxx series, and more LGA2011 CPUs available, I've updated the site to include information on whether the CPU comes with a stock cooler or not. If you choose a CPU that does not come with a cooler, AND a motherboard, AND you don't pick an aftermarket cooler, you'll now see a warning letting you know you're missing a cooler.
I'm looking into adding a filter for the CPU page for whether it includes a stock cooler or not, as well as potentially adding it as a column in the table.
