That's actually the crazy part - sure, the i7's are generally running at a higher temperature, but they're not actually putting out much more thermal energy than the worst of previous generations. People like to throw the "200W" number around, but a lot of TEC/phase guys (who really need to know that sort of thing) generally place a strongly OC'd i7 at around 170-180W, until you really start to get serious with things. And we've already seen those numbers for a long time, what with the Pentium/Athlon dual-cores, as well as the 65nm quad-cores, so it's not like we're suddenly being overwhelmed by higher heat levels.

FWIW - The size of the rad can become a moot point if the pump can't circulate the coolant fast enough.
Buy Cheap, Change Often.
