    Maxtor CTG8 performed very good in the russian desktop CPU test. It's nice to see that some of the best notebook pastes performing top-notch in a desktop environment.

    The new Akasa is available on Amazon and I ordered both.

    Akasa T5 Essential
    Akasa T5 Pro-Grade+

    Alseye T9+ is on Amazon US, it's just not labeled like that in the header.

    https://www.amazon.com/Compound-ALSEYE-High-Performance-Insulation-Processor/dp/B085DP1ZZT/

    "
    Thermal Compound Paste High Performance Heatsink Paste CPU Paste Thermal Compound Paste Heatsink Extremely high Thermal Conductivity Thermal Paste for All CPU Cooler"

    Yeah right...

    I'm 99% sure it's going to turn out the same as SYY-157, Zezzio or FuzeIce Plus, or any of these group of pastes coming from the same factories. All those companies are just resellers anyway. SYY seems to at least post the website of the factory supplier but if you go to that site, you can't find any paste named "SYY-157"...

    There's no way this can be better than SYY-157 unless it's TFX and it definitely isn't TFX from the chart you posted earlier. Those charts have too low temps to separate something like TFX from SYY-157 and FuzeIce Plus, since MX-4 is only 1C worse on those low temp results.

    Maybe I'll waste more money and buy one but I know already what's going to happen.

    ALSEYE is probably a customer from one the big Shenzhen paste factories but they have a higher background, they are selling various thermal pastes for years unlike SYY, Zezzio, iceberg-thermal, all of them are fairly new in the paste market. Wovibo seems to be a customer from Halnziye, they are saying it's in collaboration with Halnziye but in the end it comes from a Halnziye factory.

    Who makes TFX, then (or which factory does it come from?)

    There is a Thermaltake plant in Dong Guan City, although I have no info if there is a paste manufacturing. It's very close to Shenzhen city, so it all comes from the same area anyways.

    Ok I gave up. Bought a tube of T9+ Platinum so I can have even more SYY-157 nuomi chemical paste stockpiled :) If this is actually the exact same as TFX however I'll buy Papusan a beer.

    Thermaltake has no relation at all to Thermalright, though.
    In fact there was a lawsuit at one time relating to Thermaltake stealing Thermalright's heatsink designs like way back in the stone age.

    I just want TFX without paying $40 for 6.2 grams, that's all :/

    I got the alseye T9+ platinum and with the fingertip test, it's definitely wetter and thinner than SYY-157 / Zezzio. Seems to be identical to FuzeIce Plus here. Can't test it since it's only 2g.
