Just make sure you have enough room in your case for it to fit.

This cooler dropped my load temps about 5-6 degrees and idle temperature by a couple of degrees as well.

Installation was easy, but it does require the motherboard to be removed.

Size Name: TX3 Verified Purchase
I've recently built an AMD Athlon II 425-based computer (a certain regional electronics retailer well-known for their CPU/motherboard combos made an offer I could not refuse. What I paid for the CPU works out to less than forty dollars.) Naturally, and like most other people who choose to assemble their own PCs, I could not resist the allure of overclocking. Of course, stock cooling solutions are adequate for... well, cooling the CPU at stock settings. Since all modern CPUs have great overclocking potential but get quite hot when doing so, I wanted to upgrade my cooler.

After some searching, I found the Cooler Master Hyper TX3. In keeping with the philosophy of my build (buy the product at the point where performance just about stops increasing linearly with the price), I made the purchase, and the product arrived at my doorstep a few days later.

Cooler Master has elected to use plastic blister packaging for the Hyper TX3. It was easy to open, and required no scissors, which is a refreshing change from most packaging of this type. I received the universal version of the cooler, meaning my version of the TX3 supports Core 2 as well as Core i5, along with pretty much all Athlon 64s and above (Athlon 64, Athlon 64 X2, Athlon II, Phenom, Phenom II.) The cooler does not require installation of a motherboard backplate for use. Since this is a smaller cooler, it uses Intel's standard push-pins or AMD's clips to remain secure. Cooler Master has apparently revised the TX3 recently; previous versions used a clip to secure the 92 mm fan to the heatsink. This clip received VERY mixed reviews (Yes, I do mean VERY - some reviews were absolutely glowing while others had the deepest contempt I have ever seen.

Size Name: 212 Plus Verified Purchase
The Hyper 212+ is a must-have heatsink for your CPU if you do not wish to pay for pricy water cooling.

-Price
Only $30, when most high-end heatsinks are priced at $50+ on NewEgg. If you want your CPU to run cooler for a cheap price, the Hyper 212+ is perfect.
-Instructions
The manual has two to three pictures each step, along with the most minimal of a sentence that describes what the pictures want you to do. You're better off watching the youtube video that Cooler Master uploaded.
-Installation
Once again, I strongly advise just throwing out the given instructions and view the video that Cooler Master has uploaded to youtube. Installing was a bit tricky at first, one of the nuts refused to go the entire length of the screw, needed pliers to force it the rest of the way. After attaching the backplate, the rest of the process went very smooth.
-Performance
I installed this heatsink to a week-old i5 750 CPU. Temps were running 45C idle with stock heatsink. After applying the Hyper 212+, the i5 dropped to 28C idle. I have yet to encounter temperatures above 35C on heavy load. Overclocking the i5 to 3.6GHz, the temps rise to 37C idle, which is simply amazing. I previously tried to O/C with the i5's stock heatsink, and the temp skyrocketed to 65C after booting Windows.
-Additional Info
Comes with a 120mm fan attached onto the heatsink. The metal clips make it very easy to remove the fan for heatsink installation. Has an extra two metal clips in case you would like to add an additional fan on the opposite side for more airflow. In terms of noise, my case fans are louder than the packaged 120mm fan. The PC is positioned about 10 feet away from my bed, and I have no trouble sleeping because of noise.

Size Name: 212 Plus
Conclusion: For around $30 I was able to cool an overclocked CPU to 55 degrees at 100% load, and 25 degrees at idle. Improved from Intel's Heatsink (70 degrees at 100%, 50 degrees at idle). Runs quietly, works very well, and highly recommended. Install not the easiest ever, but if you can assemble a PC from a stack of parts, this isnt going to be a challenge.

Thoughts:

1. This heatsink fits many CPUs/motherboards (1156, 1155, 775, AMD, etc.), which actually complicates installation a little. There are three different settings for the brackets depending on your motherboard and CPU, so you have to be sure and follow the correct instructions for your board. Not too hard if you know what the final outcome is supposed to look like. The enclosed instructions didn't show the settings for 1155 on it, so I just followed the 1156 instructions, which worked fine. SETUP = 4 stars

2. The heatsink is tall (it wouldnt fit in either of my standard Dell or HP cases based on the measurements), but fits fine in my Antec DF-85 case I bought for my new PC with room to spare. If you're unsure, take some basic measurements before ordering. DIMENSIONS = 4 Stars

3. It is quiet. There is a huge fan on it, but the fan doesnt any real noise at all when I tested it running by itself (case fans disconnected). Running with the 7 other fans in the case didnt change the overall noise profile. NOISE = 5 Stars

4. Running a i5-2500K CPU at 4.5Ghz (overclocked from 3.3Ghz) with Intel stock cooler and CPU running at 100% load: 70 degrees. Same CPU setup with Cool Master Hyper 212 Plus and CPU running at 100% load: 55 degrees. COOLING/VALUE = 5 Stars

6. You can buy and clip on a second fan to the heatsink.
