This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper TX3 - CPU Cooler with 3 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Pros: If you're gaming and don't care about noise, could be just the thing for you.
Cons: LOUD, included bracket assembly for AMD is a pain to install because it can be pretty difficult to hold it together while trying to lock both sides in. The stock cooler, which is quite noticeably smaller, does almost as good a job cooling my CPU (AMD FX 6300 6-Core) with around 1/3 the noise. As I understand, the brand is supposed to produce great stuff, but I'm far from impressed by this unit. This is my home recording studio workstation, so I can't have it loud or the noise will be in all recordings. I've been building computers since before DOS 6.22 (commence "old guy" jokes lol). Not a matter of inexperience. Will be returning. Doesn't suit my purposes.
Other Thoughts: Hate to rag on it so much, but honesty is best. If you're a gamer and don't care about noise, check it out.READ FULL REVIEW
