Assuming Intel does eventually manage to release the Core I5 and other LGA1156 socket chips, Cooler Master will be ready.   Their new Hyper 212 Plus will work with LGA 775, 1156 and 1366 as well as s939, AM2 and AM3 though a case may be a problem at it’s overall size is 116x51x159mm.  As a large sized cooler, fitting a 120mm fan is easy which will lower both noise and temperatures, in theory.  The Guru of 3D’s testing proved that this new improved Hyper 212 sits on the good side of the middle of the pack when compared against other choices in heatsinks.

“Cooler Master has been updating their product lineup extensively lately; everything from their elite cases like the HAF series towards all sorts of coolers. Today another new cooler sees the light, Well new … it’s actually the Hyper 212 cooler we reviewed a long time ago that is being updated, overhauled one could say. The updated Hyper 212 is now called the Hyper 212 Plus and it will be Cooler Master’s first of many LGA1156 and LGA1156/1366 compatible coolers to come. Again we spot DHT as in Direct contact heat-pipes, dual fan cooling options and new PWM fans are now included into this cooler design.”
