Re: Arctic Silver 5 Vs MX-2
MX-1 was worse than AS5 and MX-2, maybe you got them mixed up? I would like to try the Tuniq TX-2 but I can't find it for sale here and I'd kill (well, figuratively speaking) to get some Shin Etsu
Did you lap the cpu IHS as well or just the cooler?
5-10°C is a good result, was there always such a big disparity between your cores or has this altered since you lapped?
