No, TIM is used on the Ivybridge and Haswell Extreme CPUs. Intel received a lot of complaints regarding their decision to start using TIM instead of soldering when the Ivybridge was introduced. Intel has reversed course and has decided to start using soldering again with Broadwell, which is part of the reason this article was posted - to show Intel kept their word!

The grammar here has gone downhill somethin' fierce lately. I saw the comment a couple days back about (paraphrasing here) how the article volume exceeds the capability to be reviewed for errors.
I am officially throwing my hat in the ring to become the Error Checker/Proofreader/whateverthehell you want to call it.

Soldered or Epoxied ?

Very confusing terminology here

You are correct. Epoxied is the most correct term. Soldering refers to the process of adhering two metal objects together, but does not provide reference as to the medium. Epoxied refers to both the bonding of two separate materials AND the resin used as the medium :D
