Nice review. I use MX-2 but seems like i could pick some PK-3 as well.

Shame you havent used any MX-4, thats the stuff i always use.
Its super cheap and cools like the best.
Least now i can use PK-2 and PK-3 to without worry's smile.gif
1 side note though:
75 degrees @ 4,5ghz with watercooling is a bit high dont you think ?
You only ran Prime95 for 20 minutes.

I hit those same temps with my i3 @ 4.6 GHz @ 34-38c ambients. Then again, it is receiving hot water that was partially cooled by one rad, but still...

Hey mate, I appreciate the effort and all to make this video but my comment is that your methods aren't every reliable in testing the three different TIM's. With the spread tests you've made, you can not tell the difference between the three and I was surprised that you picked PK-2 as the winner when, in the video, the three spread exactly the same.Not flaming here man, just a suggestion/comment. thumb.gif

In the video it may look the same,but pk-2 required less pressure from my hand to spread.What I mean is that only if you are the one who is doing the test can confirm it,the video wont show you much

Thanks for the comment smile.gif

Thanks for the comment smile.gif

Right, thanks for the confirmation.

But the thing is that this method has long been considered unreliable because the pressure from your hand and the surface of the acrylic will never replicate the surface of the heatsinks. But anyway, thanks for the video.
