Cooler Master Hyper TX3 i5 CPU Cooler

 

Cooler Master builds the TX3 with 43 aluminum fins surrounding three copper heatpipes that get nestled into an aluminum base. The TX3 is cooled with a 92mm fan, with a unique blade shape that boasts up to 54.8 CFM which can be PWM controlled via the 4-pin power connector. The Hyper TX3 measures in at a low clearance of 139mm from base to the tips of the pipes and weighs in at a relatively light 470g. All of this makes for a compact and quiet solution to the Core i5 processors, but Cooler Master takes it one step further and also made the cooler acceptable to fit all AMD processors from socket 754 on up and fits both the Intel LGA775 as well as the LGA1156 sockets.

 

Since the cooler has only made it to the public's eye on the 8th of this month and its full release being the 18th of May (today), I can only assume it will take a few weeks to hit retail shelves. As with most of Cooler Master's products, they will most likely be able to be found at all your local shops and major e-tailers that carry the Cooler Master line of CPU coolers. Don't worry; if I had to take a guess I would say expect them during the first week of June.

 

Straight out of the press release, Cooler Master wanted it to be known that the Hyper TX3 would be an affordable solution to the cooling needs of the buyers. The MSRP of the TX3 is slated to be $19.99 U.S. Dollars. As I have said many times, $20 is a price anyone can afford to spend and I'm impressed with Cooler Masters decision on this. To be really honest there aren't many coolers in this price range worth spouting off about as direct competition, so let's just see how well it does and we can go from there.
