Default Thermal paste

Should I get Tuniq TX2, or TX3?
Just wondering since it's always TX2 recommended here, but I dunno if that's because TX3 is new or something.

Get the tuniq x2 for normal dual-core to low end quadcores.
I highly recommend x2 as it has dropped my athlon ii x3's heat from 53C to 42C.
Since I have some left over I hope my new phenom ii can handle it when I fix up my computer tonight.. >_>

I would stick with the TX-2, I tried the TX-3 about a years ago. The TX-3 is a more solid, chalky type of paste and I couldn't get it to apply correctly, consistently. I'm sure it's good but if it won't spread correctly, everytime, then it's just not worth the hassle.
