Better off to have an aftermarket heatsink/fan, esp if your ocing. But the stock ones work too. Its a cost/performance question.

my X2 4400 came with a pretty nice cooler. Copper base and heatpipes with aluminum fins. On top an 80mm fan blows down through the fins. works good for me. My temps are 27c idle.
