Default Cooler for Socket 1156 I5...

I'am searching for a cooler for the Socket 1156 (I5, I7). I saw that Thermalright have the Mux-120 but it seem MIA on every single store site. Any other suggestion? It's not for hardcore overclocking but for HTPC in a NZXT Rogue Case... (witch is plenty high enougt)

This one is serving me quite well for my 'hotter' 1366 i7 and its a lot cheaper too:

NCIX.com - Buy Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus Direct Touch 4 Heatpipe Heatsink AM2 AM3 LGA1366 LGA775 LGA1156 120MM - RR-B10-212P-GP In Canada.

Currently have i7 920 C0/C1 OC'ed to 3.8GHz with ambient temp of 25C.
Idle temps 45-50C
Load Temps 70-75C

Would run you even cooler at stock and OC since my understanding is the i5s run cooler then the i7 1366s
