Question about CPU cooler

Hello, I have a question!

I'm thinking of buying a "Cooler Master Hyper tx3 Evo" which would serve as my cpu cooler.

The fan that comes with this cooler is pretty noisy under load, so i'm thinking of replacing that fan with a "Noctua NF-a9x14 92mm PWM Fan".

Would this serve me good in terms of cooling and noise levels? Or is it better to just buy a "Noctua NH-U9B SE2" cooler instead?

I have a mini-itx system, so a wide cooler would block my graphics card. Height is no problem at all.


My setup:

Chassis: Bitfenix Prodigy

CPU: i5-4670k

Motherboard: MSI Z87I AC Mini itx

Ram: 8GB low profile 1600mhz

PSU: Corsair cx600

Graphics card: MSI GTX 760 tf

Exhaust rear fan: Noctua NF-P14 FLX 140MM

Intake front fan: Bitfenix spectre 230mm


Thank you very much in advance,

The TX3 Evo shouldn't be so noisy as long as the motherboard regulates the fan down when temperatures are low. Look into the BIOS options for fan control, and make sure the fan is connected to the right header on the motherboard.

If you're going to buy a noctua fan afterwards then I would say just get the noctua cooler.  Their coolers are really top notch, and their fans are dead silent, definitely worth the price.
