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.

This is an utterly phenomenal cooler. Far better than I had hoped it would be.

Check it'll fit in your case - simple google search'll do it.

Install: Really easy. There's good vids on youtube to prepare you, but honestly it couldn't be much easier.

I decided to use a different thermal compound - out of curiosity and because my local geek shop stocked it and I wanted to support them. It's a nanodiamond compound, non-electrically conductive so safe if you use a bit much, and rated at 3.7W/mK (whatever that means) - reviews put it about 5C cooler than Arctic Silver MX-4 (There's a brand that is even more conductice - 4.5 W/mK, I think its called IC Diamond). Other reviewers say the stuff that comes with this is good.

Performance: WOW! seriously this is far beyond what I had hoped for. I'm running an i5 3570k in a Fractal Design Define R3 case. The stock Intel cooler allowed me to reach 4.2Ghz O/C, but I was seeing temps of 80/81C under prime95 tests, and beyond 4.3Ghz straight out failed.

I first ran this with just the stock fan pushing air through the tower (people say this is more effective than pulling air through). Although the PWM control meant my temps stayed at 77/78C, I noticed that the fan speeds were only 50%. So I thought why not try higher... 4.3 came and went, then 4.4, 4.5, 4.6.... by now the fan was hitting 90% BUT STILL KEEPING ME AT 79/80C. I even got it to 4.7Ghz but temps started rising toward 85C. I bought this because I really wanted a moderate O/C at 67C or below.

Then I read up on dual fan push/pull configurations. I had a spare 120mm fan, just a cheap standard Akasa 1200rpm jobbie. The brackets that come with this for 2nd fan are so easy to install. My fan ain't PWM, so just plugged it into mobo 3-pin header.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Brillllliant~! 12 Mar 2013
Style 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.
