Hyper TX3 Evo is 7-9c hotter then top coolers.. Definitely not one of the best.
CM Storm Stryker website says the fans are:
Front: 120mm LED fan x 2, 1200 RPM, 17 dBA
Top: 200mm fan x 1, 1000 RPM, 23 dBA (converted to 120/140mm fan x 2)
Rear: 140mm fan x 1, 1200 RPM, 19 dBA (converted to 120mm fan x 1)
Bottom: 120mm fan x 2 (optional)
CPU cooler height: 186.0 mm
186mm will clear any cooler I know of.
Don't know what is available in Australia but here's a list of top coolers.

SA SB-E Extreme . 8x 6mm pipes 155x105x164mm 155x130x165mm w/fans Smaller because of 140mm fan vs 150mm fan.
*cooler base to bottom fin. (add 8mm for motherboard to bottom fin.)
**fins are at 3 different levels
K2, D14 & 14PE are about same size cooler. 14PE has 140mm front fan
140mm fans can be problematic with ram clearance.
All can interfere with PCI-e slots 1 & 2
SA SB-E is widest by 15mm. 170mm with TY-150 fan in middle. TY-150 is 169x151mm
SA SB-E Extreme is 155mm wide with TY-143 fan in middle. TY-14x fans are 151x140mm.Edited by doyll - 9/26/13 at 12:58am
