Default OEM Barton heatsink/fan good?

I just bought one a AMD2500+ to be exact, and well i purchased a thermaltake volcano 12 along with it, but when it came the OEM heatsink looks pretty good atleast compared to what ive had been stuck with back with the thouroughbread, tbirds and etc. Just wanna know if i waisted my money on the thermaltake,heh

No the thermaltake is good but the one it came with would have been absolutly fine. You are probably gaining just a little more performance with the thermaltake but if you dint need it then use the stock one and take the thermaltake back.

I love my volcano 12. It's nice to be able to control the speed of my processor fan. Plus... theres so much potential power (and noise). Plus ... the copper heat sink on the volcano is much more efficient at dissipating heat due to all the fins.
