Thermalright tfx. New top 1 paste?

Looks like it..... it has higher stats than the kryonaut and seeing some flawed reviews, in all of them seems to be better than the kryo.

Srry if there's another thread open for it.

I did a couple of tests and found Thermalright's new TIM to be very good. Applies and spreads easy, and gives great heat transfer.

Did you use TFX or TF8? Id like to try either of them. Leaning more towards TF8 as I'm on a bit of a budget with an upcoming move. But if its worth it to get he TFX well you know.. I would just quit listening to my sensible side as usual. I did notice the performance of my CF3 to be diminishing slightly. I read because they want you to replace it every 3-6 months or something like that. I'm at that point. I'm sure under normal circumstances it would be fine, but I've been hitting Linpack Extreme fairly hard lately.

I did some quick testing of both and found them both to be very good. Actually I tried TF5, TF8 and TFX. I like TFX best, but all are quite good.


Where did you read that garbage about needing to replace every 3-6 months? I have 2 systems running CF3 that were mounted 3 and 5 years ago with no heat transfer problems yet.

I thought I saw it on the Thermalright.de site, but its down where I am. It must be a mistake, I am probably noticing ambient temps changing thanks to spring.. I notice they play with info from time to time, for instance in the past, I have seen them lower the tdp rating of LGMRT from 320 down to 300 and then back up again. Although at last glance Thermalright.de continued to list LGMRT as 300w, while .com is still listing at 320w..

Ok, well thanks for the tip, I think I will just go ahead and from the TF8, as with my coupon its about 10 bucks on Aliexpress.

I have the same paste on LGMRT same mount for over a year, and I gave it the beans a few times, and its still ok. Holding a 2-3c spread on my x5690. My 3770k just plain runs hot, with a 10c spread over the 4 cores, and a 3c spread between 3 cores.

I really want to buy some tfx from aliexpress. Had i have known tfx existed when i ordered my block i would of ordered some with the block. Now i need thermal compound. But it takes like 8 weeks for something from china to get to me. So now i need to find something worth my time on aliexpress to bring up with some tf8 or tfx.
