Pros: Stable 470kh/s hashrate on every scrypt network I've thrown it onto.
Runs BF4 on high settings across the board with no issues, and is only limited by the fx6300 I have it paired with.
It runs almost-as-cool as my HIS iceq 7870 ghz's, and only takes up 2slots, instead of the 2.5 that my 7870's take up. (two 7870 ghz's take up all 5 slots of my 990FXA-UD5 board)
Cons: It does run a bit hotter than my 7870's, but that's to be expected with its axial fan design, instead of a blower.
Axial fans are just much less efficient at pushing the heat out the back of the case, against the static resistance of the radiator.
Other Thoughts: Even given the inferior fan design that HIS is throwing at its newer cards, this one performs well at a blazing fast clockspeed. It's slim, and performs like an angry beast.
I have this in my coolermaster n200 case, and it's a fine compliment to my mATX build.
As stated before, it max's out the capabilities of my paired FX6300 in Battlefield 4, and seems to be the perfect compliment to any build that's fine with running 1080p on a single monitor.
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper TX3 - CPU Cooler with 3 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Pros: Excellent cooler for the cost, runs very quietly and is low profile enough to fit in almost any case.
The cost of this cooler is so low, it's hard to be disappointed, and this outperforms even the 4heatpipe stock cooler for the fx8350
Cons: It's limited by its single 92mm fan, but that's easily supplemented by picking up another one for $20 or less.
I've got mine equpped with 2x noctua 92mm fans, and it's silent and performing almost on-par with my h55 liquid setup, that my wife uses.
Other Thoughts: For the cost, it's an excellent cooler that can be upgraded modularly as a tight budget permits.
This can be upgraded into an excellent mid-range air setup with two higher-end 92mm fans.
As the included hardware allows for a second fan to be easily mounted up, it's a no-brainer for a tight budgeted mATX setup.
