As you can see, there are many coolers that aren't as expensive which perform just as well.

FYI, it does matter if that's what the OP wants. There is nothing wrong with his choice. It's a great performing cooler.

If your mind was already made up on the heatsink, why did you bother asking our opinions about it?

Make sure it's gonna fit the case or you'll wind up with a paper weight like I did on my Silent Angel build,
Now I have an unused Dark Knight and an unused Zalman cooler to keep my papers weighted down.

I just wanted input on what you all thought about TX 3 and the V8, not that it would have changed my order though.
