Hello. I need an aftermarket cooler for an AMD FX-8320. So at first i wanted to get a CM Hyper 212 EVO but i changed my mind as soon as i learned that i would need to remove the plastic thingy to what the cooler is attached. And now i thought of getting a Hyper TX3. Will it be enough to cool an FX-8320 overclocked? If i need a better cooler than that, i saw a CM Hyper T4 for a lower price than the 212 EVO and i won't need to remove the plastic thingy :D

I still need to remove the motherboard and put the bracket that comes with the Arctic Freezer I30. If you knew how long it takes to do all that you would probably do the same thing i'm doing now :D  My case doesn't have a hole behind the motherboard CPU socket so i would have to remove the entire motherboard and dismantle everything. my PSU has extremely long cables and cable management in this case is frustrating. My case is a Cooler Master Centurion 534.

For what you want, your options are pretty limited. The TX3 should work fine though. Some newegg users are claiming it does good for their overclocked FX chips.

Didn't even realize they made a T4. Yea, that one would cool better than the TX3 being that it is 120mm instead of 92.

It also has 4 heat pipes and the TX3 has 3 heat pipes :D
