If you bought the G3258 cpu/mobo combo last week, this would go nicely together for a budget build.

These are still excellent coolers for many budget builds or replacement for crappy stock coolers.

it's 5 inches tall, not really a "small" case by todays standards Wink

this one is for a small case... it also has a rebate, 27$ is a pretty good price. i have one in my htpc, it's quiet and really low profile. heat pipe hits my first dimm on my uATX case, i pulled the spreader off, it still touches... i'm sure it'll be fine...

How much has cooling tech changed? Most coolers still use a fan, heat pipes and fins. I can't vouch specifically for this particular model, but I am using one of the other "ball" models in my main rig with i7-4770k processor, and have been very happy with the fit, cooling and noise level. I found it easier to install compared to my Cooler Master 212 (which a lot of people find does a nice job cooling as well, even though the 212 is also not some new model).

The Cooler Master Hyper TX3 at Newegg is $14.99AR. Is it worth $2 more than this one?

Don't get me wrong this is a good deal, but I stopped using pure air so long ago its not even funny. With the hybrid water/air coolers on the market and them being sometimes as cheap as $20 using these types of coolers seems like a waste. They are louder, put a lot of stress onto the cpu socket mounting bracket because of their weight, and their efficiency in most cases is less effective.

My recommendation if your doing a new build or replacing a older cooler, just get a hybrid.

The overall dimensions of the cooler are: 85 x 112 x 125mm

As this review suggests [silentpcreview.com] the max you can put in that case is 120mm.

Honestly, for you I'd suggest this [amazon.com] paired with a low noise fa and no optical drive. or this [amazon.com] with the drive.

Have you heard of water?
Water is:

1) Riskier (leaks, pump failure, etc...)
2) Louder
3) More difficult to install.
4) More difficult to repair.

That being said, it's more effective at cooling.

As for this particular cooler, I personally use a Noctua NH-U12P, Cooler Master 212, Zalman CNPS10X, CNPS5X, and this cooler. Performance-wise it compares very well to the 212 or CNPS10X. The only thing I don't really like about it is the fan is not a standard 120mm, so I won't be able to replace it easily if it breaks.
