Nice but couldn't attach it

Richard K., Newegg
1 week ago
  • Summary: Too bad they don't just have screws.
  • Pros: Seems nice except for the mounting fasteners.
  • Cons: Plastic push pins will not go into screw holes in motherboard (an AM3 socket). Would have to remove motherboard to work them in.

Super fast delivery and over-all, great cooler

Gary C., Newegg
1 week ago
  • Summary: As far as performance goes, I would recommend this cooler in a heart beat. As to the installation, easy enough but you must have a bit of patience and I would very much suggest doing a dry fit before you take off the protective plastic and/or apply Thermal Paste.
  • Pros: Super fast shipping. I rip on Purolator many times, with minor annoyance, the shipping time was ridiculously fast. I just wish Purolator actually used their tracking much more efficient. The Cooler itself is working awesome. Dropped temps by at least 10Degree C. Very quiet to boot.
  • Cons: I run an AMD setup and as such, this Cooler is NOT truly made for or designed for the AMD setup. There is just two ways for it to go on the M.B. and neither are towards the back of the PC. SO..I was left with the choice of aiming out put through the top of the PC or not. Obviously, I went that ro...

Great size

Jonathan S., Newegg
1 week ago
  • Pros: - Good if you're limited on case size. - My case has enough airflow that this cooler can be passively cooled just fine, though I'll still have fans attached because I prefer lower temperatures. - 20 C idling on a good day in my room, 45-50 C under full load on my i5-3470 (though not uncommon to h...
  • Cons: Initial confusion with screws and placement led to an extra 20 minutes to install this. Basically, put it on and hope you don't need to move the screws to the next hole. Easy to do so, thankfully - just tedious.

Great cooler, awful included fan.

Brent L., Newegg
1 week ago
  • Summary: For a replacement fan I got a Noctua NF-A9 PWM. I also never tried this on a AMD motherboard but I hear is a bit of a pickle to get it on.
  • Pros: The cooler setup is really nice. It has the clips like the normal intel stock coolers do, which I don't mind, just be careful to make sure they are lined up with the hole or they will bend and possibly snap.
  • Cons: The main thing is the fan that came with it. I can't get it to change speeds and after a while it now spins really slow. BUT credit where credit is due the cooler itself without the fan is keeping my Core 2 Quad Q9650 cool under moderate loads like skype or itunes (no extreme gaming, rendering, o...

Works well, but kinda hard to install.

Zhijian Z., Newegg
14 January 2016
  • Summary: Recommended, but only if under 15 USD.
  • Pros: Provides great cooling and is low noise. With my fan curve, it matches stock heatsink's performance while being nowhere near as loud.
  • Cons: Despite using mounts that should be identical to the intel stock cooler, the somewhat hefty heatsink makes it a bit of a pain to press and rotate them into place. Also, I cut my hands on the fins, so be careful. It was a general pain to install. But it was pretty worth it.

55 degrees on 100% load with a 4790k

Anonymous, Newegg
13 January 2016
  • Pros: My 4709k runs much cooler with the TX3 than with a stock cooler. It was cheap and fairly easy to install.
  • Cons: It required a little bit more pressure to secure to MOBO than I would like.

Good little cooler

N A., Newegg
9 January 2016
  • Pros: -For the price, it does pretty good -Managed to keep my I3 under 70 on full load gaming for 3+ hours
  • Cons: -High 60's is a bit sketchy for me so I ended up getting a water cooler a month later so that I could get a higher profile cpu in the future
