Heat sink and Fan Upgrade

Product Name: Pavilion P6520Y
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I currently have Hp6520Y, Product# WW636AA#ABA H-RS880-uATX (Aloe) motherboard with AMD Athlon II X4 635 and stock heatsink and fan which is set up for 90W. I will be Upgrading to AMD Phenom II X4 975 or 980 which is 125W, I need to know the max size dimensions for the heatsink and fan, or at least working size dimensions so I dont mess up and get one to small or to large.  I tried to look up the stock dimensions but no data in the HP parts finder. Ive scanned more then 50 pages in the FAQ and forums and its makeing my eyes bleed. I have upgraded eveything else except CPU and MB. 512SSD, Radeon R7 370 4g GPU, 16g Ram 4x4gb, Asus AC1900 wireless card, and 800W PS. Any other info I can provide to help I will. Thank you in advance for the help.

Just be aware that Black Edition CPU's do not play nice with HP motherboards.
