Phenom II X4 Stock Heatsink Info?

Anyone know what the heck the name of the stock heatsink is?

Or where you can get the detailed specs of it? (RPM range, noise level range, etc)

I'm trying to Google around but having a ridiculously hard time trying to find out this information. It's like AMD hasn't even published it. (Maybe they haven't?)

If anyone knows of this information, it would be very helpful. (I'm using Phenom II X4 955)

Thanks

  1. Umm, its call the AMD Quad core stock cooler.

    Frostytech.com may have reviewed it to establish a baseline against which to compare aftermarket coolers.
  2. Is it this one? (Z7U7414001)

    Says AM2, even though the Phenom II X4's are AM3.

    Anyone know if they changed it or are using the same one? It does look like it.

    If so, that means this is one of the best coolers available in terms of temperature:

    (The #3 spot)

    WOW. Really?

    (It's pretty bad in terms of noise though. Chart sorted by noise is the previous page.)
  3. Yeah, the stock cooler can get loud, but it works well from my experience.

    "Loud"? I think you mean Jet Engine? :D

    Only when I'm stress testing or rendering, nothing else I do gets my cpu hot enough for the fan speed to increase to max speed.

    What temperatures are you usually getting?

    I've been running http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/ (no install necessary, very nice program) and I get 40-42 idle in Windows, 44-48 doing stuff, and over 50 with intense gaming (WoW).

    [Edit]: Wow, I just switched my case to Antec Nine Hundred and all the noise is GONE. Hah, I kept putting my ear to the cpu cooler and thought that's what was loud. But it was these (4 of em):

    Damn, horrible. No wonder they're so cheap.
