Aircooling:

Best is Monsoon II Lite, 2nd Best is the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme (depending on the quality of the fan you get with it), I'd say the Tuniq is like 4th or 5th place

I have a socket 775 and I am looking to upgrade because my current fan and heat sink isn't that great. I bought it without really researching Newegg.com - ASUS V-Nardo 80mm 2 Ball Unique Fan Duct for VRM Care - Retail. I think after reading reviews and prices I am going with this one Newegg.com - ASUS V-60 92mm Vapo Bearing CPU Cooler - Retail. Folks do say though it is huge. I think this and some artic silver would be a big upgrade as far as cooling.
