Thermal Grease (TIM) round-up | Six times the grease


Heat Paste


Whether it’s improving airflow, upgrading a cooler or choosing the right thermal grease, everyone has a different good reason to optimize his/her system temperature. How low can you go? That’s the question I’m going to look at today, in a TIM (Thermal Interface Material) round-up. Thermal grease – or just ‘grease’ as I’ll call it from now on – is a prominent TIM in the computer industry. I’ll compare seven high-end greases to investigate where you would be best off spending on improved cooling.

    I just want to say that you didn’t include the fact that AS 5 needs 200 hours of curing. Any and every other comparison I have seen done like that, shows AS5 as the superior compound.

    If you are going to do a comparison, do it right, and don’t bash AS5 either when clearly you have a misleading article.
