If I recall the 212+ is the cheaper and slightly better version.

If you're going the air route, the 212+ and a pair of quiet fans is the way to go for as much as you want to OC. That chip should have no troubles getting to 4.0.

would the v6gt have any benifits over the 212 for the added cost?

what about the geminii, is it worth the time?

For what you intend to do, probably not. The 212+ is a great air cooler for the price, and 4.0 on the 975 won't push it too bad.

i'm using the 212+ on a 965x4 and the h100 on a 1090t, i also used the V8 for two years,they all seem about the same 30-34.c idle and 50-55.c full load.....im sure the V6 is just as good
