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 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

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: easy to spread, got a decent max and idle temp with my cpu corsair h110 on an overclocked i5

Cons: not exactly a budget offering, but it fills the weakest point in a cooling solution so its worth getting something good

5 out of 5 eggsTX-2

Pros: While there are many great thermal grease compounds that do a fantastic job. The Tuniq TX-2 is non-conductive and non-capacitive. It requires no curing and doesn't harden. It has a seven year life span after applied. It cleans easily with rubbing alcohol. Application is easy.

Cons: No real complaints as it is my goto product

Other Thoughts: There are many good choices so do your home work online and get a primer on how thermal paste selection can make or break the success of your build

5 out of 5 eggsFavorite Compound Ever

Pros: + Keeps cool
+ Low cost
+ Clean application

Cons: - Eventually runs out

Other Thoughts: I've used this compound on everything from PC cpus to reflowed PS3 boards. This stuff has helped keep cool several PS3s that were brought back to life from YLOD.

I ran this compound with a Q6600 + AF7Pro rig that has been running 24/7 overclocked at 3-3.2GHz (depending on my mood) for the last 6 years. Idle in a warm environment, mid atx tower, and gpu blowing right into it, I was getting around 30-40c and on load no more than 60c.

By comparison, stock cooling idle was 50-55c.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Paste

Pros: Great thermal paste, great price. This stuff dropped the idle temperature from 35C, and Prime95 stress from 55C, to 30C/52C respectively in the order of idle/Prime95 torture testing. As said in one of the newer comments, and a bit of research, that person is right; this doesn't dry out like other/most pastes put there will. Easily one of the best thermal compounds out there after researching it.

Cons: None, really.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Theremal Paste out there

Pros: This is non-conductive thermal paste, unlike the other stuff that has silver in it.It also does not dry out over time like most do.

Cons: Newegg forces you to put something in here. There are no cons to this.

Other Thoughts: Comes in a very solid injector needle-like package. Very easy to apply exactly the amount you want.

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 .
