Anyway, luckily most games don't get it hot enough for the fan to whizz up to full speed. I set my motherboard up to run the fan at idle until 72C where it then runs at full 35db glory. Ugh.


Oh, uh, yeah I'll join. Won't have this cheap **** for long though, dunno whether to go for an overpriced NH-D14 or a H50. Anyone got any suggestions?

That's probably because you're expecting wayyyyyy too much out of this cooler. An i5 at 4ghz is gonna require a better cooler than the TX3.

It's like saying "Man, I hate my Toyota Camry because I can't go 250mph with it. I'm not satisfied at all." That's not its intended use. It's not an overclocking cooler.

Hey guys, this is awkward redface.gif I just snagged an i3, and was fixing to put the old stock cooler back on this chip, and use mr tx3 on the new i3. I went into the graveyard (evil office of dead/spare parts!) to snag my tx3's little accessory box, and found only 3 of the 4 retention/push pin doo dads, and no little screws! Maybe my hardware model, Mott, took them(you'll see him early in this thread=)

Blah, long story short, maybe one of you amd users would be as kind to shoot me a pm and maybe we can work out a little deal for shipping with paypal or a money order or something for the pushpin part/screws, makes me sick thinking of buying an all new cooler just for one little missing part! Anyways carry on, and thanks !

*edit* Didn't realize I could get a parts replacement, CM is sending me the full accessory pack free of charge!

Whats the point of getting a cooler if it doesn't perform well under overclocking? The stock one is silent and has fair temps for normal clocks.

The stock Intel heatsinks are terrible under load. You'd get one because you don't want your load temps to exceed 90c every time it hits 100%.

You don't get a TX3, overclock your CPU to 4.0ghz, and then complain that it doesn't cool well enough. There are bigger heatsinks designed for overclocking. The TX3, with its smaller size, and only one 92mm, obviously wasn't designed to push CPUs that far. Sure, a light overclock will be fine, but you're not using the TX3 for its intended use.

If you want 60c load temps at 4ghz, get a NH-D14, which is probably 4x the price and has 3x the surface area. Don't get a TX3 and then complain that it sucks. It's $14.99 in most places. Did you really expect it to blow you out of the water?

My Intel stock cooler got to about 50C peak under load @ stock.

As for the TX3, I was expecting it to keep 1.30v under 70C at the very least. I didn't purchase it because of the price ($15 for you, it's £15 in UK = $25), but merely because I didn't want to have to install a backplate on my week old newbuilt computer (at the time). The hassle of taking out a motherboard a week after putting it in just didn't seem worth it.

I dont believe the Stock Cooler was able to keep your CPU @ 50c. That's just impossible. Anyway, the TX3 is for 3.6GHz< . You can't get 4GHz with this cooler and this Vcore. it shouldn't handle over ~1.30V properly, unless you dont mind the p95 / IBT temps and then you prolly won't pass the 70c under gaming.

Bottom line - Get a heavy cooler if you want 4GHz, and if I were you, I'd atleast Push-Pull this TX3 to maximize it. Unless you haven't already done so that is. It's a great cooler for it's price and I was able to get a nice 3.6GHz OC out of it with Push-Pull configuration.

I've been shyed away from the push-pull configuration because I don't know how to plug fans in and have them run at the same speed. Wouldn't want one to be bottlenecking the other because it's slower.

Equal fans? Fan controller? Close-RPM&CFMed fans?
