I do believe the new bulldozers are designed around the am3+ socket, so any CPU cooler designed for a AM3+ socket will work just fine, especially one of that caliber.
as far as cpus I would personally, especially if your a power user, stay with the 1100t if you dont wait for the bulldozer. the 1100t comes with auto turbo features which allow an easy overclock to 3.7 mhz without you having to mess with the bios settings, which in turn allows basically, a 500 mhz auto tune up that the CPU is designed for, and you dont have to worry about messing your computer up with a messy overclock. On top of that, if your buying from newegg, their having a sale until the 12th which gives you 15 dollars off, for a price of 175-only 5 dollars more then the 1090t, so for basically anywhere between 100-500 mhz increase I would say is more then worth 5 bucks. That is of course, if you cant wait for the bulldozer.
You are purchasing a crossfire enabled motherboard (well xfire and sli) So im assuming your leaving it open for a future crossfire setup. Heres the thing to keep in mind, your current PSU is a good quality choice, and will power your current setup just fine, but if your thinking about crossfiring in the future, then you should look at a higher powered PSU, probably in the 850 watt range on up depending on how many video cards you want to add-youve got room for 3. anyway thats just my two cents.
