Cooler Master Hyper TX (RR-P/DCH-S9U1-GP)
The last model to be tested today is Cooler Master Hyper TX. I think it is another step in the evolution of the Hyper 7 (HCA-F61) or Hyper UC model, which we have discussed in the article called New Cooler Master Hyper 7 CPU Cooler Review:
Here is the same plastic box as the Mars is coming in. It holds the cooler fixed firmly.
There is no box with accessories here, though, because there are two versions of the Hyper TX cooler, for AMD’s and Intel’s platforms. The fastening mechanism is already attached to the cooler and thermal grease is applied to its bottom, so there is no need for any accessories, except for the brief instruction enclosed. As concerns the price factor, this cooler doesn’t fit into the category of expensive super-coolers, coming at a recommended price of $20.
So, we’ve got a small tower-like cooler with dimensions of 90x44x136.5mm:
A 92x92x25mm fan with curved blades covers one of the sides of the heatsink and is rotating at a constant speed of 1800rpm (or from 650 to 1800rpm with activated PWM) at a noise level of 22dBA, which is not very loud, although not silent, either. The four rubber poles the fan is fastened upon are meant to reduce its vibration and noise to some extent.
At the opposite side, there is a translucent plastic casing that drives the stream of air towards the CPU power circuit.
As you can see, the cooler makes use of three copper heat pipes. This is an example of the classic tower-like design.
The name of the manufacturer is mentioned on the top of the casing:
