    I just built a pc for someone with an x2 3800 and it did have the same single core stock cooler. Think you have to go a few models higher or choose a dual core opteron for the new heatpipe cooler.

    Yeah that looks like the new cooler. Don't think you can buy it tho. But if you wan't a decent air cooler at a reasonable price go with artic freezer pro cooler. I upgraded from this to watercooling and was only a few degrees higher.

    The freezer 64 should be a bit better than that heatsink you linked. Nothing much beats the freezer until you get to water cooling.

    They didn't put the heatpipe cooler on lower models because a) the X2 manchester 3800 runs cooler than the toledo and other X2s as it has half the cache on die (other models have all the cache, or all of it but half disabled) and b) as the budget dual core model they try to save money.

    That said the cooler is still fantastic
