The Short n' sweet

This cooler is quiet. But it's very tall. ( > 158.5 mm above the processor is required )

Access to the underside of the Motherboard is needed.

The Good. The Cooler is quiet and narrow. I had a small mother board to work with.

for eg these wouldn't fit. Zalman Ultra Quiet CPU Cooler with Dual Mount Support And Nexus Low-7000 R2 Low Profile CPU Cooler : LOW-7000 R2 Yet both are quiet and efficient.

This Coolers width = 77mm with the supplied fan fitted, without it's 51mm.

The height of the pipes means it clears ram which on smaller Motherboards can be an issue. Since this was the problem with the install I undertook today, I'll add the proviso that I swapped the fan around so it sucked through the fins rather than blew, as it would have been a tight fit against the 'tall' finned ram fitted.

I could have made it work - although I would have had to ( c/o Heath Robinson ) fixed the fan to the cooler without using the supplied bracket.

Swapping the fan around from the front to back - and in this case from blow to suck made more sense, as the cooler is designed for a double fan set-up anyway, ( and the kit includes mounts for a second fan - not supplied ) This meant air movement was kept front to back as I was fitting a front fan ahead of the hard drives.

Mounting to the Motherboard is more demanding than the bog standard click fit coolers. If you're reasonably competent with a screw driver it's not a problem ( and lets face it if your opening up your computer-ma-bob you really should be shouldn't you? ) I found it easier to attach and better engineered than similar products I've fitted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Brillllliant~! 12 Mar 2013
Colour Name:Hyper TX3 Evo|Verified Purchase
Okay bad pun titles aside; and first

This is a great CPU cooler, fits both AMD and Intel CPU sockets, can have two fans and comes with a thermal paste tube.
My temperatures are not important due to several variable factors.

Arrived promptly, annoyingly a box inside another (amazon) box with paper. But, to Amazon's credit it's for transferring purposes.
All the bits and bobs were securely in bags (the clips and accompanied screws were also packaged into a cleverly designed box which secures the main box while hiding the other bits) or foam; so it's safe while in transit.

Aesthetics & Functionality:
First and foremost; this cooler is efficient.

The stock CPU cooler (AM3) would only go to 30 deg(Celsius) if the bedroom window was wide open and ran at a noisy 100% along with all other case fans.
The CMH TX3 cooler keeps my processor running cool at 25-35 idle, and up to 45 (50- when the central heating was on) when running under load- and the best part is the fan isn't noisy.

Aesthetically; personally; it just looks like a cooler. I don't have a window on my case; which also sits UNDER my desk in a corner, so I'm after functionality over visual bragging rights.

(please see note 1 below)


[EDITED: 11th JUN 13]AMD:
After cleaning out my case a few days ago, I noticed there was some grooves between the heat-pipes for the AMD V bar to go into; thus; thankfully of great design, anyone with an AMD board can have this fan blowing in four directions.
On the top part of the plate under the aluminum fins, there's a stretched + shape.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great cooler if a little bit noisy 16 Jan 2014
Colour Name:Seidon 120V|Verified Purchase
I just purchased this unit as my old air cooled unit was not cutting it anymore. I am currently running a AMD phenom II X4 965 processor, with 8gb Gskillz ram, 1gb ddr5 EVGA Geforce GTX 650 graphics card, Corsair Builder Series CX 600 Watt, GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3 Motherboard. My old air cooled unit (Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO) was not doing a good job of cooling the CPU effectively so I thought a upgrade was necessary. I looked around for a while but could not find a cheap air cooled unit that would be good enough to keep my CPU cool. SO even though there was no reviews for this I thought for the price I could give it a go.

Well I have to say that I am really impressed with the unit. It came very nicely packaged with all the attachments for either a AMD or Intel CPU. The cooler was a bit tricky to install (only because its my first water-cooled unit) but this is my fault as I did not read the installation instructions. But eventually gave in a read them, after that the install wasn't that difficult even though my case has no water-cooling capability.
So if this is your first water-cooled unit then read the instructions you will save a lot of time.
In the end I had to front mount the cooler and it works brilliant, it gets a lot of cool air from the front and the unit only really gets warm when I am either video editing or gaming.

As for the cooling, this unit is brilliant it really is keeping the CPU cool, unfortunately I don't know how to access the CPU temp to tell you how much of an effect this cooler has but for the first time cool air exits the PC case instead of very warm air.

Now to the only downside, that is the noise.

It might be a good effective cooler, but i never got a chance to find out, the fitting method and instructions were poor.
There was also missing parts.
