No it does not come with a FAN. The I-7 does not the I-9. If i was you I personally would go with Water cooling system due to the temps it runs at well gaming. If you want with a water cooling system you should be just fine. Me personally am running CORSAIR - Hydro Series H100i RGB Platinum 240mm Radiator CPU Liquid Cooling System. At idel it runs at 26c Gaming right around 36c with the fans only on medium setting. But the choice is yours really. I hope this helps you in some way.
