    I've recently received my Opteron 165 and it came with an amd approved cooler, the one with heatpipes. I also have a Thermaltake XP-90. This is the original one.

    I currently am using the XP-90 and temps are at 40'c under load and clocked to 2Ghz using standard volts.

    What I was wondering is, is the cooler supplied with the CPU better than my XP-90?

    i would doubt it, plus with a decent fan the xp-90 will be quieter.
