Fares a little better than the AMD stock cooler but thats about it. Under load, my 8350 hits 75 deg celsius.
For the price, I'm not sure the TX3 could be beat. It's basically a samller Hyper 212 Evo, but without the need for a backplate. Definitely a great upgrade if you have everything put together but still using the stock cooler.
Easy installation on my Athlon X4 860K (FM2+ socket), dropping my idle temps from a whopping 60C to 36C. It's loud in a quiet room, but with headphones on, you don't even notice it.
If you don't feel like a paying an extra $13 for an extra three centimeters and have an appropriate CPU, this is cooler for you.
I wanted the EVO 212 but it was not on sale. This was, and it has kept my CPU below my threshold of 60oC well into 4.7GHz OC attempts. Very happy with it thus far at just $20. Make sure you install it right and use good paste. I've seen others botch fan coolers and even water coolers and run far worse temps with smaller overclocks.
