Summary: Today, we had a look at the Cooler Master Hyper TX3 CPU cooler. The Hyper TX3 is intended to be a mainstream cooling solution and, in my opinion, it well accomplishes its task.
From a general usage perspective, the Hyper TX3 is fantastic.
Summary: So in the end, Coolermaster once again restored my faith in their products. They won out over Evercool and especially the stock heatsink. And if that temperature difference alone isn’t enough to make you want to buy the TX3, there’s also the prices.
Conclusion: Priced around 27€, the hyper tx3 provides nice performance with decent sound levels. While not being the silentest cooler available, it is definately more silent than the Intel stock cooler and has half the price of Noctuas.
Conclusion: The Cooler Master Hyper TX3 only real downfall is its size. Cooler Master sacrificed size for a lower price, which makes sense. Another reason for a reduced size is that some people just don’t want a massive cooler. This cooler perfectly fits the bill for anyone falling into that category.
Summary: Sure, I like the Hyper TX3 very much. Let's face it, the majority of you guys reading this article will probably will never even overclock. So if you still want the benefit of a very silent yet effective cooler with decent performance, then the Hyper TX3 simply has a lot to offer.
Conclusion: The testing results were expected for a cooler of this size and price range. This TX3 really is not designed to cool an overclocked 6 core CPU although it did manage it fine running at stock speeds. The mounting system is always an important part of a cooler’s package.
Pros: Good performance, Included mounting brackets for a second fan, Quiet operation, High quality thermal paste
Cons: Small quantity of thermal paste provided, Wasn’t very easy to install while the motherboard is inside a case, Failed to keep the overclocked CPU within the maximum operating temperature
