Does this EGR Cooler look bad?

Pulled this EGR Cooler of the 05 motor I am parting out. The motor was pulled from truck due to starting to over heat. I havent seen a bad/clogged EGR Cooler but this one to me dont look that bad I had more in mind the fins or whatever there called would be all plugged up or something.

From what I've researched on here, The coolant side of the oil cooler is what gets restricted and/or clogged. The EGR cooler will then overheat due to lack of coolant and will then leak some coolant internally into the EGR cooler and combining with exhaust flow into the intake manifold. Then you get coolant into the manifold and therefore into the cylinders.

The EGR cooler is not what usually gets clogged.

I've been modifying the EGR coolers and up pipes into deletes.

If coolant is coming out of the flanges where the exhaust is suppose to go, then the cooler is no good unless you're going to turn it into a delete.
