    Default Tuniq TX-1 (Thermal Paste)

    Hope this isn't considered a repost, I have a specific question. Has anyone ever used the Thermal paste that comes with the Tuniq Tower? I lost my AS5.

    I have heard it described in several reviews as "gooey and thick." According to this xbit labs review, it is a pain to apply but does the job.

    Well I just ordered the Tuniq for my next system and I'm gonna be using their TIM since I lost my AS3. I've read that all the high end heatsinks from Thermalright, Sunbeam, Zalman etc come with very good thermal paste so I wouldn't worry about it.

    That is correct, it is VERY thick. I couldn't get it to spread, didn't want to "stick" either, it would just roll around. I finally gave up and went to the store for some of the OCZ brand tthermal paste (they didn't have as5)

    I bought some AS5 with mine. All I need to build my machine is every other part.

    All my stuff showed up as of Friday. A motherboard problem has set me back again. Hopefully once I talk to tech support there might be something i missed.

    So far I get a post code that indicates I have a CMOS jumper set incorrectly (it's not). It also has an EZCMOS switch in back, but that is not the problem. I tried setting the voltage in the BIOS to 2.2 from 1.875, but I can't save my settings, it crashes on save/exit. I have tried lots of other things, too many to go into detail here about.

    Case:
    SILVERSTONE TJ09-BW Black

    Mobo:
    Abit IN9 32X-MAX(680i chipset)

    PSU:
    Silverstone ST85ZF

    GPU:
    eVGAGeForce 8800GTX 768MB ACS3 version

    Proc:
    Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz

    Memory:
    Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1000 (PC2 8000)

    Storage:
    WD 15G Raptor (150GB),

    Cooler:
    Tuniq 120
