Tuniq TX-2 Thermal Paste

Packaging and Contents

Packaging and Contents

The packaging that Tuniq has chosen to run with for their TX-2 thermal paste is simple and unassuming to say the least, but provides a little more than the OEM versions of AS5. The TX-2 thermal paste is packaged in a heat-sealed plastic bag with the product name on the front, and the TX-2's specifications on the rear.

Present and accounted for is one 3.5g syringe of Tuniq TX-2 thermal paste. Let's have a look at the contents a little closer...

Contents and A Closer Look

The single syringe of TX-2 thermal paste features the name on the front...just in case you forget, and the specifications again on the rear. One thing I like about the Tuniq TX-2 syringe applicator is that you feel like you are getting considerably more for your money, and it's a little easier to hold and control.

The syringe also has a neat little window so you can see how much more thermal paste you have left.

The size difference between Arctic Silver's AS5 and Tuniq's TX-2 thermal paste syringes is really quite evident, even though they hold exactly the same amount of product.

AS5 versus TX-2

I have included a closeup of both pastes just so you can see the difference between the two.

You can see from the images above that the TX-2 is by far the less viscous of the two thermal pastes, which definitely makes the application considerably easier. Personally, I apply a small amount to the centre of the processor and then massage it around with my finger inserted into a plastic bag. I found that the TX-2 thermal paste was easier to apply when using this method due to its lower viscosity.

It is interesting to note that Tuniq don't include a prefered way of applying the thermal paste on their website,  nor is it included on the packaging. Furthermore, I found it odd that Tuniq doesn't recommend a curing time for TX-2 either.

Let's head over the page to see how the testing will be conducted...
