New Intel Wolfdale stock cooler
 
If you ever needed confirmation that with every die shrink processor heat output is going to be considerably less, then the stock cooler that Intel is going to run with for their Wolfdale chips is testament to the fact.
 
...the new Wolfdale Core 2 Duo E8000 CPUs have a new cooler bundled with them. As you can see below, the cooler is similar to that found with Conroes yet significantly smaller due to the cut-down aluminum heatsink. This move probably helps Intel trim down the manufacturing costs but mostlycomes to show one big plus of the 45nm process and that's the lower heat output.

It's an itty bitty heatsink, but it shows the faith that Intel have in the lower heat output of their Wolfdale processors

Dumb question but here goes. So im setting up my rig now and I'm connecting all the fans. I got the Zalman ZM-MFC1 Plus fan controllers and a few Scythe fans. Do I still connect the fans to the 4 pin molex connectors for power?

I don't have a fan controller but I suppose the fans plug into the fan controller using the 3 pin connectors, since the fan controller plugs into the psu (does it?) that gives it power..

I dunno :p

You want to control the fans from the Zalman unit don't you? If so, you need to connect the fans to the 3-pin male connectors on the Zalman fan controller. The Zalman should have its own 4-pin molex for power so connect that to one of your spare 4-pin molex connectors from your PSU.
