Just recieved my X2 4400+ today and will install it when I get home tonight. My question is, as the stock cooler that came with it is a heatpipe cooler, how good is it. I am currently using the ThermalTake Polo 735 (http://www.thermaltake.com/2005/coolers/comboCool/a2144Polo735/polo735.htm) (see pic below), which works well and the fan is always on low (bios reading of 2000rpm) just looking for advice on which to use with the 4400+ :)

Thanks in advance

I think its great,I am using one to oc my X2,if I had better ram,2.6 would be very much in reach with this chip.

I am using the stock cooler too, with a fan speed controller.

Works fine for me.

Thanks for the replies, I am now going to install the cpu and windows, think I'll stick with the TT cooler for the mo :)

**Update**

Have yet to do much testing, just 3DMark06.....just from a cpu change from a A64 3200+ @2.4 to an A64 X2 4400+@2.6 I've gone from 5614 to a whopping 7301 :D

Either one will do the job just fine,Its hard to believe that AMD put in a nice heatsink and fan with there X2 and Opteron dual CPU,but it does a real good job of keeping the CPU running cool even when overclocked.

The stock cooler is fantastic .. i'd recommend it unless you plan for heavy o/cing.

I also have the same question.
With my Athlon64 3500+ (temp 40C when idle) I'm currently using this cpu cooler
Cooler Master Ultra Vortex KCC-V91
http://www.coolermaster.com/index.php?LT=english&Language_s=2&url_place=product&p_serial=KCC-V91&other_title=KCC-V91Ultra%20Vortex

Yesterday I ran the 3Dmark06 SM2.0 Graphic Test #1 "Return to Proxycon" in loop for 25minutes straight, 4xAA, 16xAF, 1920x1440, and my Athlon64 3500+ was reaching 58C-59C. And it was at stock MHz and voltage. No overclock. The room air conditioner was turned off. Perhaps 29C room temp.

In 2 days I'll be assembling my new Athlon64 X2 4800+.
I'm planning to overclock it to 2600MHz (237x11), or even 2695MHz(245x11), if possible.
Shall I use the X2 4800+ stock cpu cooler or shall I continue to use the Cooler Master Ultra Vortex KCC-V91 ??

The users here in the forum that are using an X2 4800+ (or an X2 4400+) with its stock cooler, could you guys run the 3Dmark06 SM2.0 Graphic Test #1 "Return to Proxycon" in loop for 25minutes straight, 4xAA, 16xAF, full resolution, and post here your cpu temperature results, cpu voltage, and cpu MHz, please?

Thanks in advance
