If you are getting the aftermarket heatsink and cooler there is no real reason not to get the OEM

OEM means it's just the CPU, no heatsink or fan. Since you're getting a heatsink, OEM is fine to get. I personally like having the stock fan handy just in case, even though I end up never using it.

Carefull getting an OEM CPU of Ebay though, sometimes OEM means ripped out of a living system on Ebay.

Check the warranty on the OEM CPU's. On the website I buy parts from, the OEM CPU's have 1 year warranty, while the retail CPU's have 3 year warranty.
