If anybody has any sort of cooler for the 1366 socket that is better than stock let me know. I can send cooler back once I am back under water. Just hit me up with offers. Thanks.
OK, stupid question, but is the 1366/socket b a lot bigger than 775? according to wikipedia it's 1.77 × 1.67 inches while 775 is 1.47 × 1.47 inches. Since every heatsink i've ever seen has a fair amount of overlap, wouldn't you be able to use the 775 hs if you had the right bracket (are the brackets even different?).
I don't even look at most of this stuff (except for AMD) until I need to for some reason so I apologize for my ignorance.
