Default good heat sink for 939?

i have seen that amd now has 90 nm cpus. What would be the advantage of getting one of them? If i do get 1, what would be a good heatsink for it? as it is oem, not retail.

Thanks, U-Toast

My current specs:
i7 920
Biostar TPower x58
3x2GB g.skill
XFI GTX260 Black Edition
640 WD Caviar Black
Vista Home Premium x64

There will not be a noticable difference in stock speed.

There will be millions of more transisitors, therefore the CPU is capable of reaching higher frequencies (which can be an advantage to overclockers).

That is the only difference besides the increase in heat.

A good heatsink consists of alluminum fins followed by a thick copper plate as the base. Therefore I would recommend the Thermaltake TR2-M6.

I have seen great results with this heatsink/fan.
