And honestly, how often are you going to be mounting/unmounting the heatsink anyway? In most cases, they'd be similar to mine. Mount it, and never touch it again, ever.

But there's no doubt I'll choose these over the 212s in a heartbeat if the pricing was the same/similar. So until there's a price cut, it ain't gonna shine.
What it comes down to as well, at least for me, is what I define as Value. I'm not saying the 212 EVO is bad. I love mine. But I would not have an issue replacing it with this for the sole purpose of that mounting system.
