Excerpt: Great value for money cooler,the cooler runs quiet and cool and very happy with it.I bought it for my amd fx 6300 and wanted something better than the stockcooler cause im gonna do some mild overclocking in which this cooler would be great at keeping the temps at bay...it looks great too.
Excerpt: Very good choice to replace deficient cooling. Excellent cooling capacities but check first free place in your computer because this cooling fan is big! All fittings are provided for several config for an excellent price. Order processing and delivery are fast and reliable as usual with BH!
Excerpt: I've fitted it to 2 different boards and it's done a stellar job on both. It's easy to install and is relatively quiet. I've had no problems keeping my AMD quad core processor cool thus far. The only snag is that due to the nature of the device, you can't place it in the centre of the processor. Gravity WILL pull it down a few mm. I recommend you use a bit of cotton for added support.
Excerpt: The installation of the Hyper TX3 EVO is extremely simple on a AMD Socket AM3 motherboard. The instructions that come with the cooler is surprisingly detailed and easy to follow. I tested this cooler with my case open and all other system fans disconnected to see the difference between this cooler and the stock cooler without any assistance from airflow created by system fans. My CPU is an AMD Phenom II X2 Black Edition running at 3.2GHz.
Summary: Got it cheap and fast (I shelled out for quicker shipping). It's keeping my 3.3ghz 6-core at 11C idle and with P95 burning nothing above 45C. Have yet to get around to overclocking yet. Was only a little difficult to install on my M5A97 mobo (while still in the case) since I couldn't see the baseplate and cpu to line up, but I got it in the right place with the added bracket instead of the plastic pieces. No noisier than my stock fan was and does a better job.
Summary: The fan and heat sink work great. They'll probably out live the rest of my computer. But the tiny plastic pins for holding eveything in place are a joke. There is no way those pins are capable of holding 2 lbs of copper suspended over my graphics card for more than a minute. I had to improvise my own attachment with screws and washers. Shouldn't have to do that for $25+.
