I got the Hyper TX2 on my Q6600 and on stock clock it cooled by about 10 degrees C, under load and idle.

I then started clocking, leaving the vcore on auto and it was still too hot. Turns out I have one of those "good" q6600 that has been clocked down by intel so as sood I started playing with the voltages I managed to get stock speed @ 1.0v. (idle temp at 19 degrees) I also got got 3.6Ghz on stock voltage 1.28v and it ran cooler with the hyper TX2 under load and idle that it did with the stock HS at stock voltage and clock.

The hyper tx2 also cools the northbridge which many other tower HS do not do with that flappy plastic cover.

I will possibly be crucifed for this but the thermal compound on the hyper tx2 is not bad - after running some benches with that , then removing and applying AS5 did not give much extra cooling (1 degree) so you could leave it on or replace it to impress your girlfriend - you won't be.
