Re: Should I get Arctic Silver over MX-1 Paste?
MX-2 is better than AS5, both are superior to MX-1
AS5 has a 200 hour "settling" period including several themal cycles to reach peak effectiveness, MX-2 is good to go straight away.
Tuniq TX-2 performs the same as if not slightly better than MX-2
There are plenty of comparisons on the net, have a Google and read up on the results.
I use MX-2 btw.
