Plenty of TIM roundups all over the web... including Loch's own, awesome internal testing.
The short of it........... there is barely a difference. 1-3C from highest end metal to *most* cheap pastes. Take the metal pastes out and many more are within that 1-3C. Get something middle ground/bang for the buck and focus more on application and mount.
Im not saying that, my link/roundup does (did you read it? Others?)...any of them on the web. Youll see the difference isnt much.So your saying going from ARCTIC MX-2 to Gelid gc extreme will only net 1-2c lower in temperate? If that is the case I will still use what I have left of the Arctic MX-2.

I have a big tube of mx-2 i still use (on review pc)..i also have some kryonaut (thanks loch!) I use on my daily driver.
Kelvin = deg. C + approximately 273. C and K are essentially the same, with the difference being the 0 point.
I read the link you posted before in another forum and I don't know how Kelvin drop equates to what I will get for reduced core temperature. The poster in the other forum said I would see 10c drop in temperature with Gelid gc extreme. I did not believe believe what he was saying, it sounded to good to be true, so I started a thread here.
The review temperature scale did not answer my questions, I started the thread so I would not waste time and money trying different TIM.
So to answer this, its ~1.3C. What you see is what you get.So according to the chart LINK: http://overclocking.guide/thermal-p...d-with-air-cooling-and-liquid-nitrogen-ln2/6/ Arctic MX-2 and Gelid gc extreme is ~1c difference?
In general every product with a delta temperature of up to 10 Kelvin is totally fine to use performance wise.
A lot of physics equations use Kelvin... Maybe he was using some of those?Then my apologies...
That (should have been) an easy google though...and was covered well anyway.
Why the hell hes using K is also beyond me....lol. seems more like a typo since everything else in C.
