Default ThermalRight xp-90

What do you guys think about that?

Right now with a stock heatsink my LGA 775 board is running at 70-75 stressed.

Will that nock it down to like 50 stressed?

I hear it's a good cooler The XP-120 is better though if you can fit it on your board.

well i think the 90 will be fine but the 120 looks a hell of alot better just by looking at the pictures on frozencpu, maybe you should look at the 90c then. its all copper and looks super sweet.
