Tuniq tx-3 vs artic silver/antec f5

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So i built a new computer few months ago when sandybridge first hit the stores. I have a tuniq tower extreme 120 and i used antec f 5 to start with the idle temps were close 26 25 30 25 arctic silver 5 24 23 29 25 and tx-3 was 21 20 27 24 thats really close but the kicker is at load temps for antec max temp was 76 on ibt artic silver 5 74 and tx-3 61-63... so hers the delema did i poorly apply thermal paste to all but the tx-3 or is tx-3 that much better

Dunno about the Antec stuff, but AS5 needs 200 hours of curing time before you see it really give off better temps. But I have heard TX-3 is pretty good as well.
