    A little while ago, I started a thread asking which thermal compound is the best to put on your CPU. Well, we now have a comprehensive review of them all at [H]ard|OCP.

    And the verdict? There's not much in it and they're all pretty good. Only the American cheese was notably worse...

    The review.
     
    modder and tzitzibp say thanks.

    I like mx-2. really the only thing better is the really extreme stuff that corrodes copper or liquid stuff

    No Xigmatek PTI-G3606? I love this stuff.. Plus it's [H], I wouldn't trust their reviews or even look at them.

    Why not? If you read how they set up their testing, it sounds like it was done with a lot of care.

    Yea... it seemed pretty accurate this time... why?

    It seems MX-2 has a HUGE burn-in time... I would go with AS5 or TR Chillfactor or MX-2 or TX-2 :) I'm a patient guy

    P.S: no TX-2?
