    I think its a fairly common design for a cooler, seen ones similar on other cards, NVidia ones too.

    it keeps an overclocked 3870 while gaming at 50c and idle it runs 34c , i wonder if i could find another as it hardly makes any noise

    If I had to guess I would say that's cooler design is probably an OE Zalman design, it looks a lot like the zalman designed cooler that was on my old Palit Sonic 9600GT 512mb. Was a nice little cooler, but it had a smaller fan on it...I eventually replaced it with an AC S1...which was no contest with higher OC's and lower load temps.
