As we can see from the pictures, the new stock cooler is a bit larger and also incorporates some copper fins in with the usual aluminium ones. Some may be disappointed to see that the pushpin-style mounting system will still be used.
Pictured here is a side-by-side size comparison between the new socket LGA1366, a current LGA775, and older socket 478 CPUs. Mobile01 also layered the processors on top of each other to give a better idea of the size differences. Obviously, the new i7 processor is a fair bit larger.
Unfortunately, they have not received a motherboard for testing yet, so no performance numbers are available from them at this time. Hopefully they will get one soon and we'll be able to see some more current results in the near future.
