Tuniq TX-4 Thermal Grease Review

» Discuss this article (1)


To test the Tuniq TX-4 thermal paste, I will apply it twice; both times taking simple idle and load measurements via Speedfan. If the two test temperatures are far apart, then a third test will be run to ensure accuracy. The final result is the average of the results. Each application is allowed three days of stress testing (via CPU Burn) to set. Idle temperature is measured at the Windows Desktop 20 minutes idle after startup. Load temperature is measured during a 4-core stress-test via CPU Burn.


Testing Setup:


Comparison Thermal Compounds:

  • Arctic Silver 5
  • Noctua NT-H1





As you can see, the Tuniq TX-4 outperforms the Noctua and the Arctic Silver, if only by a few degrees. Though these results may already be enough to justify one over the other, skeptics should note the differences will only increase with a longer set-in period.
