I seem to recall you working at a PC repair shop, do you often deal with laptops? Would you ever have a chance to test MX-6 in such a situation?

Currently use MX-2 in my laptop because it performs better than MX-4 does in that use case, and I would replace it if something else is significantly better.
TFX is what you want for a laptop :cool:

Yup :pimp:

It’s actually the best TIM that I have used so far
Suggested temp range seems great for anything (-250⁰c lower limit). I'll give it a go next time I shop for paste :)

I would say PTM 7950 has dethroned it, with it not only superior at extreme heat that laptops love to stay around, but way easier to apply.

I agree.
PCM based thermal paste can last longer for high temperature stuff like GPU/notebook.
Halnziye HY-P16 probably has better performance than Honeywell PTM7950.
