You need thermal compound to create a reliable transfer of heat from your computer's processor to its heatsink to keep your CPU from overheating. Tuniq TX-2 thermal compound does this with low thermal resistance and small molecular to maximize particle-to-particle contact area and thermal transfer. It's optimized for use between modern high-power CPUs and high-performance heatsinks or water-cooling solutions.

This 3.5-gram tube contains enough compound to cover at least 15 to 25 small CPU cores, or 6 to 10 large CPU cores, or 2 to 5 heat plates.

  • newegg Maximizes Heat Transfer The high-performance Tuniq TX-2 Cooling Thermal Compound eliminates minute air gaps between the heat source and the heat sink caused by their uneven surfaces for the optimized heat transfer.
  • newegg Electrical Insulator Having no metal or any other conductive material, the Tuniq TX-2 is neither electrically conductive nor capacitive.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy to apply

Pros: I have heard of people having issues applying heatsink compound before. This was very easy to apply. I used a card to spread it evenly on the die head, took about 2 minutes, and looked just like the guides online looked.

It won't short your motherboard if you get some on it, it's not conductive.

My system is an Intel 5820k OC'd to 3.8ghz, with a Cooler Master Nepton 240 water cooler, and my motherboard has a LED readout of the core temperature, it has not yet exceeded 53 deg, under heavy use. As far as I can tell it's working great.

TX-4 is thicker, but is only very slightly more effective then TX-2.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Got enough for about 10 applications, and still have enough left to use for my new i5 4690 cpu that will get here in 3 days. Worth a purchase, though I have heard that the TX-4 is even better, though only slightly, and I believe it dries out faster.

Cons: Isn't made of gold...

5 out of 5 eggsNice applicator

Pros: Good applicator, easily metered. Works. Inexpensive. Easy clean up.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Been using this for many years, Much better than the plastic packets usually supplied with most heat sinks. The old applicators can be used to suck up the thermal compound out of those packets and be used for less demanding applications.

5 out of 5 eggsGood stuff

Pros: Non-conductive! This is a good choice for those "delidding" their CPU's.

No curing time, works at spec right away.

Soft, easily applied.

I'll probably get 18 to 24 applications out of the tube.

Cons: Soft to the point that some (not me) keep it in the fridge to harden it up for application. Might easily shoot out too much on the first try.

5 out of 5 eggs2 - 3 Degree Drop

Pros: Medium Consistency
Non-Conductive
No Curing Time

Cons: Price

Other Thoughts: I typically use Promilatech PK-1. I find that compound to be the absolute best performing for the price. If you want something a bit better than the PK-1 and you are okay paying more, then Tuniq TX-2 and TX-4 are the best.

Using the TX-2, I typically see a 2 or 3 degree improvement over the PK-1. That's not a lot, which is why Tuniq usually isn't worth the cost. But, if you want the best and that slight improvement matters to you, then Tuniq is where you should spend the money. In my opinion, both Tuniq and Promilatech out perform anything from Arctic by a degree or two. Again... that's not much either.

A few things that make Tuniq a better option over other compounds other than the slight performance is that the consistency is what I would call medium. It's soft enough to easily disperse and cover the CPU, but it's not runny like some cheaper compounds. It's also non-conductive, but so are most compounds. Lastly, it doesn't require a curing time, doesn't dry out, and lasts a long time.

I use the pea/BB/dallop method to apply compound. That gives great coverage of the cores without squishing out the sides or causing air bubbles. Tuniq's website also states they recommend the line or the dallop method. In other words, don't spread compound with a card. That method is pretty antiquated with today's compounds. Pressure from the heatsink is all that is needed to disperse the compound evenly.

I've always had a good experience with Tuniq on both CPUs and GPUs. I assemble a dozen or so PCs a year and mostly use Promilatech PK-1 and sometimes Tuniq too.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Of the reviews I read where the heat transfer efficiency of thermal pastes were tested, this one was near the top just behind the tx-4 compound, which is more expensive.

The tests shows this to be better than some of the other well known compounds out there.

It is doing a fine job for me. Co complaints.

Cons: none
