I'm looking on newegg and they only have a ONE LGA1366 cooler, and it's sold out. Is that right? I've seen several different coolers used by people but I can't understand why new egg does not carry any of them. Is everybody ordering from other suppliers?

Thanks for the link. I didn't want to have to make two orders, one from newegg and one from another place, but I see Newegg now has the Noctua NH-U12P SE1366 in stock, so I'll just get that as it was the best cooler Anandtech had ever tested when they reviewed the LGA775 model.

Not that hard when you get to copy someone else's design. ;)

There are several coolers that just need different mounting brackets to work with the new socket. Chances are some people are just buying the adapter kits from the OEM.
Here is the kit for the TRUE. http://www.thermalright.com/new_a_page/product_page/product_accessories.html#lga1366boltnew
