4-way Thermal Interface Material Roundup

Posted on Wednesday, November 14 2007 @ 03:50:55 CET by

Reviews of processor coolers are pretty easy to find but mostly the thermal grease is overlooked a bit. Is AS5 still the best after all those years or can you get better thermal interface material these days? Tweaktown puts it to the test and found that all three new thermal greases they tested score better than Arctic Silver 5! The performance difference is as big as 2-3°C with the Tuniq TX-2.
Recently, we have been seeing an influx of nonmetallic materials hitting the market and they are all claiming to be able to beat the king. Our recent review of the MX-2 product from Arctic Cooling showed that there was more than just a little truth in these claims. The MX-2 compound is completely non-conductive material and was able to keep a processor cooler than the Arctic Silver 5 compound used as a comparative product.

Today we have two more products to add to the list of those who want your TIM dollars, A.I. Technologies and Tuniq (a subsidiary of Sunbeam). Both have TIM products that are making the same bold claims we have already been hearing, so it is time for a little direct comparison. After taking a look at the two newcomers, we will go forward in a head to head... to head... to head (whew) competition and see just how these products all compare to each other.
Check it out at Tweaktown.
