My System Specs

Default

I bought 4 of the $20 212+ coolers from NCIX recently and I think they are excellent. I used a 212+ bracket and backplate to mount a TRUE 1366 to my P55M-UD4 today. I had to really push down on the screws to get them to reach the threads on the backplate because the TRUE's base is about twice as thick as the 212+'s base. Temperatures are about 5C cooler with a 1450rpm Gentle Typhoon. The TRUE's fan mounting clip/shroud makes the cooler slightly too wide so that it pushes the GPU in the first PCIe slot down a millimeter or two.
