If you haven't already bought your cpu you could check out how much heat 
different cpu's produce, they vary quite a lot. Lower power = lower heat 
production = less stress on heatsink/fan (and = lower electricity 
costs). Also the overclockers websites and forums usually have opinions 
about heatsinks.
