Tuniq TX-2 Thermal Paste

Testing

Testing

The test results were very interesting to say the least. After the initial application of both types of thermal pastes, the Tuniq TX-2 reported consistently lower temperatures at idle than the AS5 thermal paste. Please bear in mind that this test didn't allow for the 200 hours curing time that Arctic Silver recommends. Yes I can still hear the purists and AS5 fans screaming 'noooo' as I type. At load temperature the Tuniq TX-2 and AS5 were dead-even


Tuniq vs AS5 1st application

Ambient Temperature - 28.9 Deg C
Case Temperature - 30.2 Deg C


TX-2 versus AS5 after 1 week

Ambient Temperature - 29.1 Deg C
Case Temperature - 30.5 Deg C

 
Allowing a week for both pastes to cure some, I then ran the idle and load tests again and the results were identical for both pastes. This is an impressive effort by Tuniq...well done!

Let's head over the page to see how the Tuniq TX-2 performed as a whole...

I am sorry, but I fail to see the difference between this and the standard card.

Me either, but i an't sorry about it.

If AMD want to sell them then they need to cut the price by 70-100. Not stick a differeent hs on.
