The stock one should do you fine if that's all you guys are using it for.

The stock cooler will do just fine. If you're having some over temp issues you might want to remove the heat sink and give it a good alcohol bath. I do that to all of mine at least once a year. I smoke so it leaves a film on the fins that blowing doesn't get off. I clean it real good and let it air dry for a half hour on a stack of paper towels. In the mean time I clean off the cpu and put a dot of thermal paste and spread it out. Making sure the heat sink it dry I put it back on and lock it down.
You do not have to remove the cpu chip to clean it.

How on earth did that break? You can bust a car window with those stock Intel coolers.

Either of the heatsinks I listed will work fine on the Intel D915G. Instead of using the push pins like the stock cooler, you just screw the HSF into the backplate. You will have to remove the mobo of course to install the backplate.
