I got a free tube of this with my CCF, and of course it being free I was like this must be poop.
But it said "high performance" so I did a little research and read some reviews. Most of the testers seem to like it, the temps are very good, and the curing time is 150 hours less than AS5. Plus its non conductive and easier to spread.
I have tubes of both, wonder which to use or even if it matters.
Yeah, most TIM's that are included with the HSF are garbage, but since the HSF maker is Sunbeamtech, of which Tuniq is a subsidiary, they throw in the Tuniq thermal paste, which is a very nice paste from every single review I have read. I would use the TX-2 since it's non-conductive and has a very small curing time, and it usually is on par with AS5, if not better.
