CM Hyper TX3 or 212+ for Phenom II 955

Hi, I've grown tired of the noise given out by the stock AMD heatsink, so I'm planning on getting a replacement.

I've narrowed it down to the Hyper 212+ and Hyper TX3, and was wondering whether the TX3 would be enough to cool the CPU (I don't intend to overclock), as it is a bit cheaper and the 212+ is gonna be a squeeze in my case.

For reference, I'm getting ~45°C idle and ~55°C under load with the stock heatsink and fan.

Thanks in advance.
