The 64 3200+ retail cooler: Not sure how great this is, so would I be better off spending a little bit more cash and grabbing a better one, or wil the standard one be OK? I'm not intending to OC, not right away, so I'm presuming the retail unit will be sufficient for now.

Anyone know if a bolting on a Zalman CU-7000 all copper unit is a good idea? Does it even fit on this CPU?

Thanks for any feedback on this.

The A64 retail heatsink is a quality cooler. I'd recommend using it so you don't void your warranty.

Thank you...thank you very much. Now where's my fried peanut butter and banana sandwich?

There are Zalmans that will fit...if you are going to OC you will void the warranty already so get a better heatsink and fan if you will OC
