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

The full collection of results from our 2011 Thermal Compound Roundup, updated with each installment. Also lists the upcoming TIMs in our queue.

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.

Shin-Etsu’s most popular varieties get tested on our TIM bench and we have some mixed results.

IC Perihelion, Noctua NT-H1, and OCZ Freeze hit the testbed. One stinks up the place, literally and figuratively, while the other two thoroughly impress.

Thermalright Chill Factor, Chill Factor 2, and Chill Factor 3 hit the TIM testbed and we come away mostly impressed.

Arctic Silver 5, Ceramique, and Ceramique 2 hit the TIM testbed. How do the offerings from the biggest name in thermal paste fair? Read on to find out.

Deep Cool Z3, Z5, and Z9 hit the TIM testbed and give some interesting, but not necessarily impressive, results.

Arctic Cooling MX-3 and MX-4 hit the testbed and neither is particularly impressive. MX-3 has serious production batch consistency issues and MX-4 doesn’t meet expectations.

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.
