The heatpipe cooler only comes with X2 4200+ and above and dual core opterons. AFAIK, it's not shipping with all retail CPU's.

According to some people there were 4400 X2's that shipped with the standard cooler. Seems AMD doesn't have it all together.
Also Dual core Opterons ship with the heatpipe cooler.

I could take some more pics of the topside of my cooler too, if you really want them...it looks similar to the older one but it has a 92 mm fan with an AMD hologram in the center.

The difference on the bottom, besides 4 heatpipes on the same side, is my newer one has a much thicker copper base than the older model pictured above.

Oh wow, they do have a new revision (I had heard half-assed comments about it, but diddn't realise one was actually around). And it does look a bit beefier to boot. Might have to see if I can snag one off someone who doesn't want it to replace this one in the event I need to use air cooling. :D I just posted up the pics since I see one of these posts at least once a month looking for the X2/FX/Opteron cooler, and since mine came with an X2 (a 4200+ actually) I figured it was the newest one.

*slaps self for not reading thread*

geeze, i think intel needs to take some hints from AMD on this one. hell, these coolers are good to cool even overvolted venices at 2.7ghz, ask tsue.

FWIW, the one that came with my dual core looks like Tsue's and not like BBA's.
