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 eggsGood item

Pros: Pricing

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I was in process of a processor upgrade and needed this item . Needless to say my cooling fan self did not survive when I removed it from the main board . The replacement cooling fan and sink will have thermal lube already applied . Murphy's law wins .

5 out of 5 eggsIn my top 3

Pros: Perfect viscosity for easy application, excellent performance, honest price, Tuniq TX-2 is one of my favorite TIM to date.

As efficient as AC MX-4 and almost as good (1 to 2 degree behind at worse) as the Tuniq TX-2 Extreme and TX-4.

Buy any of the previously named product according to todays best price and you'll be satisfied.

Cons: Availability is often uncertain

5 out of 5 eggs...nothin' but net

Pros: Works. Easy application. Spreads well (nice pattern using the ½-pea in the center method).

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Used the rice/½ pea size method. CPU temp dropped 1-2° from previous (from the included Thermaltake paste).

I didn't much care, as that meant a drop from 7-9C° "down to" 6°C.

I didn't buy it for that reason, really ...although I'm _not_ complaining about "better" lol.

...it was inexpensive, on sale, and had good (great?) reviews.

I had to take my coolers (I tried 3 different ones before settling on the Thermaltake NiC C4) off a few times during the course of the build, and had to use *something* lol.

We'll see how the TX2 lasts. But I'm already satisfied (and mildly - though unexpectedly - impressed).

Recommend.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Great thermal paste. Purchased to to a review I read on Maximum PC's website. Dropped the temps slighly from Arctic Silver 5. A little easier to work with. And comes with more that AS-5 I belive. Used it in several desktops, Laptops, GPU's ect wihout any heat issues.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful paste, lowered my temp alot plz read

Pros: I got this stuff because it was affordable and I also researched on the web for the best cpu thermal compound would be for your money. It lowered my temperature by 10-15 degrees Celsius and I upgraded to an way faster cpu.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I upgraded an older Dell OptiPlex 330 that had a 35 watt Celeron 430 1.8ghz, 512kb l2 cache, 800mhz fsb to a 65 watt Core 2 Duo E8400 3.0ghz, 6mb l2 cache, 1333mhz fsb. The old Celeron cpu didn't have good cpu paste and temps idled at 45 C - 50 C. Now this pc has a way stronger cpu (E8400) and with this new cpu grease, it now idles at 27 C - 32 C... That's a huge difference, this pc is very happy and runs so smooth now.

Make sure you apply any cpu paste correctly, that will make a huge difference, I use the small rice method and works great, be careful not to use too much, thanks for reading, hope this review helps.

My Dell OptiPlex 330 has an pretty good factory heatsink installed already, with good cooling

5 out of 5 eggsBest thermal grease I've used

Pros: I'm running a 3570k OCed to 4.5Ghz under a Cooler Master hyper 212 plus with a push pull config and get idle temps of 32c and 85% load temps of 45c. After 18 months of daily use the temps remain the same with the original application of this grease still in place.

Cons: A little gooey but it works great.

5 out of 5 eggsSmooth stuff

Pros: Smooth, uniform, good consistency.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: Bought it because it was the best rated on the site. I couldn't tell that it was any better than the previous paste I used, but that was good stuff too. That said, this is definitely a good paste.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful!

Pros: Fast curing. Do not need to leave to set for more than a few minutes.

Lowered my temperature by about 10 degrees.

Plenty of doses inside the handy syringe.

Cons: None so far.

5 out of 5 eggsBest paste 2013

Pros: Keeps my Fx6300 below 30° with EVO 212. Nice consistency, spreads great, I used a razor blade. Good twist-tight cap. By FAR the best paste available for the price, better than arctic silver.

Cons: Stringy and threads from the tube. No applicator provided.

Other Thoughts: This paste is by far the best for the money. Strongly recommend you pick up Arctic's thermal compound remover & surface purifier.
