Just rub off the TIM on ur CPU, apply a small amount of TIM again, then put the cooler on the CPU (don't lift it after u put it on the CPU, if you did have to lift it even for a moment, you need to re-apply TIM), then push the push pins 1 by 1 for an initial fit, and afterwards push each one again to tightly secure it.

hi guys . im planning on buying a CPU cooler for the xmas build im doing. il probably be running an Athlon II X4 630 on a Matx AM3 motherboard. The case im going to be using is a NZXT M59.
I have a max budget of about £10 (can't really justify spending much more TBH) so the choices i have is this CM Hyper TX3 or the CM Hyper 212 Quiet (not the 212 Plus version) they are both just under £10, so what do you guys recommend? here is the links
hyper TX3 http://www.scan.co.uk/products/coole...m3-940-939-954

hyper 212 quiet (not the 212 Plus version) http://www.scan.co.uk/products/coole...m3-754-939-940

i want to try and overclock the CPU to about 3.2ghz from the 2.8ghz stock, so not a serious or high OC just a mild one. do i even really need a good CPU cooler or would the AMD stock cooler be fine?
thanks guys !

Just get a Hyper 212+. I'm getting one tomorrow and you will be able to reach a high clock. it won't be noisy too unless you really push it.

do you really think its worth double the price considering im only going to be overclocking mildly? do you think that AM3+ (bulldozer) mobos will have the same mounting spots as AM3? i would like this heatsink to last a good while if im going for the 212+, so that means it should be compatible with AM3+ motherboards. what are your thoughts on how future proof it will be?

I dont think it will support AM3+, but it's still a good heatsink, Plus you can always overclock more than mildly, or just OC mildly but keep good temps.

ah well :/! cant have it all for £16 !! il keep hope of there being a bracket update or something if i do upgrade to AM3+ ! yes good point! i wont be limited by temps, so yes i suppose its worth the extra cash! thanks for your help mate !

No problem, by the way, I'm sure there will be adapter (Just like they did with the 1156)

hi guys,

i just bought myself hyper tx3. as of now, there is only one fan installed with it. i wanted to know will it make any difference if i add another 92mm fan to the heatsink in a push-pull config. I have phenom II 940 and the current readings are idle: 38c and load:56c (though it's much better than my stock hsf coz then readings were idle: 45c and load: 71c)

another query is i don't know how to setup the direction of the fans. Hyper TX3 only allows the fan to blow air towards North or South. My power supply is at the top. So i set the fan towards north.

AMD system? Take apart the little mounting clip. now push it through the cooler so it goes around the middle heatpipe. You'll notice the little grooves on the mounting block. You will then need to clean off the thermal paste from both cooler and cpu and reapply, before you mount it again. Make sure the fan blows air out the rear of the case

Get 2 better fans like Scythe S-FLEX 2000RPM's and run them at full speed all the time, they are quiet and move some serious air.

To everyone else, I ordered 2x Scythe Kaze Jyu 2000RPM fans, 1x Arcti Clean solution and another tube of Arctic Silver 5 I now have all of my summer overclocking supplies (southern hemisphere;0 )
