    Same price as the Hyper 212 Evo, but better stock performance (by a few degrees).

    Which is better for AMD FX-8350, Hyper 212x, Hyper 212 evo or hyper tx3 evo.


    if possible please let me know what are the temperatures on idle and load using these coolers..


    thanks in advanced
  3. The Hyper 212x is the newest version in the 212 lineup , GET the 212 EVO the X is overpriced.

    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

    CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($29.98 @ OutletPC)
    Total: $29.98
    Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available
  4. I am with SR-71 on this, the performance of the 212 X doesn't work the price that you have to pay for it. Go with the Evo and would be more that enough for that CPU.

    Regarding the temps, those are almost impossible to say since all CPU and rigs are different.
  5. A quick question, I've been thinking of buying a TX3 EVO and mod it with 2 Noctua NF-B9 PWM fans. Do u think it will improve temperature a lot in comparison?
    If not, would you mind recommending an alternative fan for me?

    Thanks in advance

    If you can extend your budget a little more, I would suggest move on to the 212 Evo that is better for price/performance.

    In other way, if you are limited to the TX3 evo, you will see some improvement but not a big one.

    That's what everyone been telling me, but money is not the issue. My case which has a 155mm limit for CPU cooler is.

    But thanks anyway for the feedback =D

    What case do you have?
  9. Cooler Master Elite 310

    Correct, the case isn't enough for the 212 Evo. What about go with liquid cooling like H60i?
  11. I've considered Seidon 120V Plus a while ago, but now I'm looking more towards Noctua NH-C14 as it's one of the few high end cooler that will fit my case. Well, it all depends on the pricing in my region as both are good coolers (from what I've read).

    Yes sir, both are excellent options. If you can go over liquid cooling, I would take that option but not the seidon....I prefer the H60i or similar, save you a lot of space inside the case if you know where to install the radiator.
  13. i got the TX3 Evo with my i5-3570k i oc it to 4.0Ghz ... y ran prime and max temp of one core was 70c ... the other 3 sited in 68 ~ 69c ... i will try a 4.4Ghz when i change my msi z77a-g43 to a P8Z77-V ...
  14. I know this is an old topic, but im trying out the tx3 evo one my i5-4690k will post results.

    I liked the tx3 cause of its size and i think it can be modded to do better than the 212evo.. But lets see
  15. My pc before the tx3 was about 30-35c on idle. now im at 25-30c
    Ran the benchmark unigine Heaven cpu went to 55-57c with stock cooler. now it's running 45-47c

    Kind of a huge improvement if you ask me... 1 more fan and i think it can do alot more, btw my cpu is not overclocked.
  16. You should overclock it, a CPU like that needs overclock...
  17. Yea i know, i've just learned to Overclock my gpu and did it quite well. But for Cpu, i have no clue what programs i should use, or what i should do in my bios yet... Im reading up on alot of stuff as i write this. But any tips or heads up would really be appreciated hehe
  18. Just let me know what components do you have.
  19. Motherboard : Gigabyte Z97P-D3 Bios version F8
    Ram : 8Gb DDR3 Dual channel. Kingston HyperX http://www.amazon.com/Kingston-Technology-1600MHz-KHX1600C9D3-4G/dp/B004JO3L0Y
    Psu : Tx 650 Corsair
    Gpu: Gigabyte Gtz 970 G1 Gaming
    Cpu: i5-4690k

    Soon probably newer and more ram and a new psu. (THINK) its needed.
