My i7 920 runs 75C full load (after ~12 hours) at 3.6GHz with this cooler, but I don't have the greatest air flow around the computer, and there's no real way to relocate it right now. Since I bought this one about 2 years ago, I've been wondering if there are any new air coolers that have come out recently that could lower my temps 5-10C?

Really how's that inform anyone.Especially the OP since he has a 1366 cpu.
Right off the frostytech site
This index does not apply to Intel Core i7 socket 1366 Heatsink performance characteristics .
The best thing you can do is buy a case with better airflow.
What case do you have?
Your joking ! that case has awesome airflow.
What's going on?
Are your front filters full of dust?
Maybe it's time for a good cleaning.
Your HSF wouldn't have been my first choice btw.
It's fans working right?
I'm finding it hard to understand since i have a 902 and all my internal temps are low 30C.
List your full specs please.
Look around for more reviews, depending on the site and their test methods, the top performer differs, just make sure that they are actually testing on the socket 1366 platform and not another socket or a synthetic platform.
