You guys hear about the new Intel chip?  It takes a three pound heat sink :p

Looks like Intel specs the max heat sink mass at 550g for an ATX and 900g for a BTX.

So, not so bad.  they use a 65nm process, and so heat usage is less than the 90nm pentium 4 series.  also, IIRC, they dropped some of the crappier features of the Pent-4 in favor of the desins used in the Pent-M.

Even the 2.93 GHz X6800 only has a max draw of 75W, quite a bit lower than the 90-odd of some Pent-4s.  The E6000 chips are rated at 65W.
