    It's a great cooler, but I had to oil the fan with sewing machine oil because it was buzzing at low rpm. It's fixed now but the fact that I had to do it is why I'm docking two stars. I'd get the Cryorig M9i if you can instead of this.

    Great little cooler, I have an FX 8320 OC'd to 4.0GHz and it very rarely rises above 45-47 degrees centigrade. Excellent for the price and very small in comparison to many other coolers. Second best in its class.

    Great Value aftermarket cooler. IF your case cannot accommodate a 212 evo, then this may be a good alternative. CPU idle temps on my fx6300 = 27 Celsius & 47 under load.

    Really solid cooler for the price. Mounts the same way as stock coolers, which is really nice.

    Mounting was a little iffy for my taste. Setting up the brackets was a breeze, I just don't trust the mounting mechanisms. Otherwise this is just like the little brother of the Hyper 212 Evo. I actually saw a 25 degree difference between this and the stock intel heatsink. While under load my processor was hitting 80c with stock heatsink and not overclocked. When swapped out It struggles to get up to 65c with the TX3 while being overclocked 25%! Great value for the money.

    cools pretty well, but it took me about an hpur over two days to get it properly installed, and the thermal paste is really goopy and goes everywhere if you dont take it off carefully

    Was a pain to install at first, but once you get it up and running its EXTREMELY quiet, cool and efficient!

    I know that it may not keep things cool as well as the legendary Hyper 212 Evo, but its modular design, high-quality copper pipes and steel plates still prove competitive when it comes to tamming the heat from the 4790K.

    I don't use this with its default fan, instead, I replace the default fan with a Noctua NF-A9 PWM which has better airflow and accoustic signature. The 2 are a solid match

    The cooler its self is superb for its size. It keeps my I5-8400 below 50 degrees under load whilst staying very quiet. A major issue that I have had with this CPU cooler though has been mostly Intel's fault. The mounting solution for LGA 115x seems to be designed with the idea that once the cooler is down, it staying down. I say this because after a while the pegs that go through the mounting holes become to wide to go through the mounting holes and need to be squeezed through the holes which is not easy on most motherboards with VRM heatsinks. I found myself almost break the pegs of when trying to install the cooler onto my new CPU from an older on.

    Cools nicely on non-overclockable processors. The only problem I had were the Intel motherboard pegs that are a pain to mount.
