– Cooler Master Hyper TX3
Video Card: XFX 9800 GTX Black Edition

Tests were conducted under idle and load states. The computer was left to sit after 30 minutes after being turned on to check the idle temperature. The load temperature was found by running the latest version of Prime95 which supports multi-core CPUs by default. Temperatures were obtained through SpeedFan.

The Cooler Master Hyper TX3 performed pretty well for being such a smaller cooler. It averaged a low of 42C in idle and a stead 54C under load conditions. It’s not the best cooler, but it’s certainly one of the better CPU coolers we’ve tested.

Conclusion

The Cooler Master Hyper TX3 has taken its first fully compatible Socket 1156 cooler and made it worthwhile. Its small design packs powerful cooling even with only one 92mm fan. The installation takes a different approach and adds some easy methods to help the user along. The TX3 can be found online for around $19.99 making it a cheap and powerful CPU cooler. Overall Think Computers would like to award the Cooler Master Hyper TX3 CPU Cooler a 9 out of 10 score and our Good Value Award!

Pros:

– Affordable
– Powerful cooling
– Easy installation

Cons:

– Uses pushpin design
