Does anyone know if it has heatpipes? & how does it do on temps?I just ordered the cpu & want to know if I need to get an aftermarket cooler. I probably won't oc & I live in the southern US where it gets real hot in the summer.

I think you'll be fine with the stock cooler.

I would imagine it's very similar to the stock cooler that came with my 4400+. If it is, you'll probably be good with it for awhile (or forever) unless you want to do some serious overclocking.

My stock X2 cooler has copper heatpipes enveloped by aluminum fins. I've OC'd my cpu from 2.2ghz to 2.65ghz with it, and my temps didn't rise much more than 2-5 degrees. (typically it idles from 30-35c and under full load it's 47-52c). Though to be fair, I did apply some Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste, and I tossed the tube of paste that came with the cooler.

Stock coolers are perfectly adequate for pretty much everything except overclocking.
