Thermaltake has announced two new cooling pastes, TG-1 and TG-2. The TG-1 is the high-end solution with a thermal conductivity of 3W/mK, while TG-2 is considered the mainstream solution with a thermal conductivity of 1.5W/mK. The pricing is still unknown, but both of them will be available as syringes containing 4g of paste. According to Thermaltake's tests, TG-1 performs better than the average silver paste, while TG-2 performs slightly better than the average standard or stock paste.

Um, in other words, worse than Arctic Silver, but better than the other stuff? :slap: Arctic Silver just "decimates all."

Question however; is this thermal compound, or adhesive paste? Big difference.

Its listed as Thermal Grease, so I'd consider it as a compound.

Not 100% positive myself but I'm pretty sure its thermal compound.
