Thermal Compound Roundup

...applied with Arctic Silver's Ceramique thermal compound.


...applied with Tuniq's TX-2 thermal compound.


...applied with OCZ's Freeze thermal compound.


Overall, all of the thermal compounds worked well with the application methods used. All of the test runs exhibited good distribution of thermal compound for the installations. There was no 'better' thermal compound from this aspect.

I have to agree with the

I have to agree with the first anonymous. How can the Tuniq TX-2 out perform the Noctua NT-H1 and only get a Silver rating while the Noctua gets a Gold?

How can Tuniq TX-2 come in

How can Tuniq TX-2 come in essentially tied for first with OCZ Freeze - with both being ahead of Noctua's NT-H1's - but it only get a silver award while both OCZ and Nocuta get an editors choice award??? Was that a typo or was there some other criteria that made it only get a silver award?

The difference between the

The difference between the Freeze and TX-2 were very small at ~0.15 degrees celcius. The difference between the Freeze and NT-H1 was approximately 1 degree celcius. The tiny difference between the Freeze and TX-2 can easily be factored within margin of error. The 1 degree difference between the Freeze and NT-H1 is more easily recognized as one being cooler than the other. It was still minute, so the NT-H1 compound still deserved an award.
