AMD retail heatsinks / fans

Are the standard heatsinks and fans on AMD Barton chips (say a 2500) up to the job, or should I buy OEM to mix and match?

But as with all retail, you will only get the minimum the manufacturer provides.

After all, it's all about profit!

I'm sure if AMD are bundling these heatsinks with their processors then they should be perfectly up to the job.

Upgrading the heatsink is really for those that like to overclock or are upgrading their processors but don't have a heatsink thats up to the job.
