Announcement of return

After having been gone many long months, Skinnee Labs is back. First, thank you for coming back and thank you for bearing with us as we iron out the last of the issues with the site. If you find anything that does not work quite right or needs a band-aid, feel free to contact us […]

Tuniq TX-2 and TX-4 hit our testbed and fare pretty well but there are concerns with pricing and batch variance.


We’re in the process of reviewing Tuniq TX-2, TX-3, and TX-4 but we’ve come across a bit of a snag. It seems there’s an issue with TX-3 and TX-4, specifically with some especially dry paste.

EVGA Frostbite, Phobya HeGrease, and TIM Consultants Quantum hit the testbed. One thoroughly impresses, another sets the benchmark for new best paste, and the last turns out to be a repeat of a lackluster paste.

Today we test Coolink Chillaramic, Nanoxia Heat Buster, and Nexus TMP-1000. One is really shiny, one is just okay, and the other is a really good performer.

Over the past three weeks both Swiftech and EK have announced modifications (in one way or another) to their flagship CPU blocks. Koolance got to the punch earlier with releasing the CPU-370 and we figured others would be releasing tweaks and new blocks as well, but that is like predicting the sun will rise tomorrow […]

During the universal VGA roundup I put the Modmat through normal use for the lab, meaning it now has thermal grease spots all over it, solder blobs, even aluminum shards from unisink modding. A cleaning was a little overdue, and FrozenCPU sent one over a Modmat V2, which is now back in stock.

Arctic Cooling, the makers of the MX series of thermal pastes, has actually not killed off the great MX-2.

As part of the upcoming article on Universal VGA blocks, we have the first contest here at Skinnee Labs. In keeping with our data driven approach, this contest will be one based on data… Well, unused data anyway.

Koolance’s new CPU-370 is official and in our hands for a preview and upcoming review!

    Following Eric's lead, this is the full collection of results from the V2 Radiator Bench or let us call it 2011-2012 Radiator Comparison. When new results go up, this post will be updated. In this compilation post, the overall performance overview will be slightly simpler, with the full in-depth look available in the individual reviews or data supplements.
