Think about it. An standard i7 920 (45nm) will do ~75C under full load @ 4GHz with ~1.3-1.35V while using a HS such as the NH-D14.
A 2600K (32nm) can do around 5.5GHz, with 1.4+V, whilst getting the same temperatures.
The only reason processors slowed in speed increase was because of the addition of cores. If CPU companies had kept on the single core path, we would probably have at least 5+GHz processors by now (if you don't believe me, look back at the Pentium 4 line. they made a 3.6GHz p4, then dropped everything to around 2GHz when they went to dual core). the more cores you have the more heat your processor creates. I would have absolutely no doubt that a single SB core could do 10GHz by itself, given proper cooling and power (especially seeing as people have been able to clock an SB to 7GHz under liquid nitrogen). the main limiting factor is heat, and the smaller you get, the less heat you create.
