Default NH-U12P vs CM V10 vs TR Ultra-120?

It will be my 2nd time getting a CPU cooler. So I need some advice, not very experienced. I was waiting on CM V12, but I hear it might not even come out until Christmas this year, I don't know if I can wait that long. After searching on forums it seems like I should pick 1 of these. I've also read Thermalright cooler can rip the mobo, is this true for the ultra-1200? Or is it only for the True Copper Cooler? I certainly don't wanna worry about getting my mobo ripped in 2 pieces...

Also some of these coolers only seem to support LGA 775, but if I remember correctly the stock coolers intel provides with in LGA1366 CPU and LGA775 are identical. So can I still use the cooler that says "for LGA775" for my i7 setup? I need to confirm this.

The reviews on the web are phenomenal, so I can't pick which one to choose!! Help me out here.
