Cooler Master's Hyper TX series has evolved with requirements of current mainstream CPUs. The introduction of Hyper TX3 marks another milestone with Cooler Master's first-ever full compatibility with Intel LGA 1156 socket.

Hyper TX3 is taking basic ideas and simple design while incorporating it with most of the fine points of a decent performing cooler, such as the flexibility to switch from Intel to AMD quickly and easily, the dual fan design to attach another 92mm fan to increase the cooling power. Hyper TX3 also brings back the "original" direct contact heat-pipe design from Cooler Master.

- Flexible mountings for Intel Socket LGA 775/1155/1156 and AMD Socket 754/939/940/AM2/AM3.
- Maximum compatible CPU wattage: over 130W TDP.
- 3 x Direct Contact heat-pipes with aluminum fins to provide excellent heat dissipation.
- Option for adding 2nd fan to increase cooling performance.
- New 92mm PWM fan with wide RPM range and anti-vibration rubber pads.
- Silent CPU cooler at only17 dBA (at minimum speed).
- Easy swappable fan by clips (clips for 2nd fan included).
- Excellent airflow design with compact heatsink dimension.

Question  AM3+ by Alex

Would this fan work with a AM3+ motherboard? for example i got a ASUS M5A78L MLX motherboard?

Answer by stewartz on Thursday, January 10, 2013
That should be fine.

Question  Cooler Master Hyper TX3 CPU cooler by Eric

I would like to know if this could fit Asus P5LD2-TVM SE/S motherboard with Intel Core Duo 2 CPU.

Answer by joebe on Monday, June 11, 2012
Yes this cooler will be fine.

 UPDATE by brianthesnail

Hi guys
i recently needed to replace a stock intel cooler on one of my systems.... the Cooler Master Hyper TX3 CPU Cooler which had been removed from my main rig around 12 months ago was a ideal candidate ....
however i need to emphasize... this cpu cooler uses HDT or heatpipe direct touch and you need to apply thermal compound in two steps to cool correctly
STEP 1 .... apply 2 small pea size amounts of thermal compound on each copper heatpipe then carefully use a plastic credit card to fill in the small gaps between the heatpipes and base .. then wipe any excess compound from the metal base
STEP 2 ... now apply a small line of thermal compound on the two center metal parts of the base... these should be a thin line of around 2cm in length ....
when you attach the Cooler Master Hyper TX3 CPU Cooler to your motherboard the two lines of thermal compound will spread out enough to cover the whole area of the cpu die...
i discovered this when i only applied a pea size amount of compound to the cpu.... the gaps between the heatpipes and metal base caused the cpu to operate at way above the recommended tempertures ( eg E5700 running at 65c )
this method works with all HDT cpu coolers and should be carried out for optimal performance
for further reading check out my post of this at
still a great cooler ... and for the price its a steal !
well done aria !

Good enough by ftw

For a non overclocked Phenom X6 1055T (125W version) over the stock cooler and will it improve temperatures?

Response by stewartz
Yes, it should drop the temperatures down a bit, but how much I cannot say.

Fit on broken support? by Phil


i see this uses the extra catches for the socket 754 boards, do you think this would work if the middle catch was broken on the MB bracket? mine broke the other day with the standard cooler in place.

Response by joebe
It may do but it will not supply the max amount of pressure onto the CPU thus loosing some cooling.
