I don't know how useful of a discussion this will be since cover letters should be highly specific to the place you're applying to and you as an applicant.
Resumes detail what you've accomplished while the cover letter just needs to, well, cover what excites you about this particular position, whether it be how it matches up with where you've been and where you want to go (but don't parrot the resume) or if there are cultural things at the company that entice you.
