I'm an old trekkie and I have no idea why he's wrestling with half a apple/berry turnover.

Actually, the ETS-T40 outperforms both. And it costs the same as both right now. Look to the ETS-T40, it will exceed 212 EVO expectations. Though for $15 les, the GAIA should match 212 Plus expectations.

I'd either spend a little more and grab the Xigmatek Prime or stick with the previous recommendations. The V6 is loud and the V8 is a decent performer, but not worth $50. If you want something different, grab the Hyper 212 Plus or TPC 812 and a pair of Cougar Vortex, Rosewill RFA-120, Swiftech Helix, TY-140/TY-141, or LEPA 70D fans or a single Noctua NF-F12, Noctua NF-P12, or Gelid Wing.

Depends on the review you look at. Based on the data I've seen, I don't feel confident enough to say it will outperform it all the time. I can only confidently say that it performs similarly while being quieter and at an as good or better price point. I always recommend it and the Gaia over the Hyper 212 Evo and 212 Plus in /r/buildapc on Reddit and in here.
