Precision T3500 heatsink question

I have a quick question about the heatsink installed in my Precision T3500. There seems to be 2 different heatsink's that may be installed depending on the CPU's TDP.

There is this one


And there is the performance heatsink that seems to be for CPU's with a higher TPD

Now in my T3500 I have the smaller heatsink with no heatpipe's but since the CPU installed in it is the Intel Xeon W3550 (130W TDP) should it not have the bigger heatsink with the heatpipe's?

I am very interested in knowing the answer to this as while I am writing this post my CPU is basically idling but it is almost reaching 50 Celsius.
