      "The Cooler Master Hyper TX3 out performed the stock AMD cooler by 4.5c on core 1 and by 7c on core 2. That's a decent performance increase over the stock cooler. The TX3 would be perfect for someone who has a smaller case with limited space, but still wants optimal cooling performance."

      "So in the end, [Cooler Master] once again restored my faith in their products.  They won out over Evercool and especially the stock heatsink.  And if that temperature difference alone isn't enough to make you want to buy the TX3, there's also the prices.  The TX3 can be had for under $25 on most online storefronts."
