Don't most companies supply a LGA 1366 clip for most coolers?

Nothing a bit of lapping can't fix (for the TRUE)

$300 at buy.com but they are out.

I checked out Micro center black friday deals and they suck. I hope they have better ones

True bases are known to have a convex base. Like Vern pointed out, lapping will take care of it.
