Okay, I have read this topic and several posts in which people state with great certainty that de RPi DOES NOT overheat. Ever.

Is that true even when one tries to overclock it? (haven't looked that up yet, also new to Rpi). But I could imagine that in case this were true, selling RPi's with heatsink and fan could make sense...

HTH,
Gerard

A fan may keep the system cooler. So you might be able to overclock more or for longer if you have a fan. You can't guarantee any particular level of overclock though, that might be why people ignore fans and overclocking.

Just so we get things straight, I am NOT planning on overclocking, but was just thinking of a rationale behind selling an RPi with heat sink and fan, countering the apparent common belief that it would be ridiculous to do so...

I did find the comments about that rather condescending, that's why I reacted...
