The CPU cooler was originally bought for a mini-ITX build when I later changed my mind. Works well and it hums reassuringly. Goes up to 4.4GHz overclock at 82 degrees, but decided to play it safe and stuck with 4.2GHz.

Wish I didn't cut costs here. Great product for the price, I just want something more quiet and capable. Looking to upgrade in the future

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.

My PS08 wouldn't fit a larger cooler, but this little TX3 has been fantastic! In multi-hour BF4 gaming sessions the CPU never gets over 69 degrees C. It's extremely quiet as well.

I wanted the EVO 212 but it was not on sale. This was, and it has kept a FX-6300 below my threshold of 60o C 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.

The Cooler Master 212 Evo's younger sibling. This CPU cooler is capable of having two fans for a push/pull configuration, however. It was a little hard getting onto an FM2+ board though.

This is a great cooler if the Evo or T4 won't fit in your computer case.

Alright fan for stock cpu speeds.
