Spreading it Thin TIM Roundup 2007
Arctic Silver dominated the TIM (Thermal Transfer Material) industry for many years. They may have invested more in R&D then all their competition combined. Many ask is there anything else out there? Today we hope to answer this question...

that TX-2 seems to be good stuff, but I think you made an error in the ranking of AS5 and MX2 because AS5 definatly looses for long term stability and electrical safety

Have you tested the difference between the line and the blob method?

is it difference between applying tim with a blob that BIG ?? :redface:

how many times did u guys test that , thats a huge difference in temps :huh:

been using blob method for all my CPU HSF reviews last 2 years and it allows for more consistent results compared to spreading it out over the IHS

But there is the method of using a line on intel CPUs or a blob, both without spreading and it has to be solved by scientific testing.

Great little write-up Keith, I learned quite a bit :)

You've certainly got some attention from other sites as well, even an xtremesystems forum thread about this article ;)

I see a lot of these TIM reviews, but never see my favorite; Shin-Etsu X23.
