Intel's "K" Unlocked CPUs to feature revised heatsink

Fancy new cooler ... it's just that I won't be using these "K"-samples with stock air cooling ...

In a bid to reach out to overclockers, Intel will be releasing two unlocked multiplier CPUs in the mainstream market - the Core i5 655K and Core i7 875K. Clearly, Intel's reference coolers aren't designed for overclocking, so they have decided to provide beefed up vertical-style heatsinks of the K series CPUs. Fudzilla have managed to get a hold of a render of the new heatsink - which does resemble the i7 980X's heatsink.
