Highest Performance Thermal Compound
Highest Thermal Conductivity
The surfaces of processor chips and cooler floors are covered with microscopic dents; ARCTIC‘s MX-5 thermal paste is composed of carbon microparticles which fill these cavities. This leads to high thermal conductivity, guaranteeing that heat is dissipated efficiently from the CPUs, GPUs or power semiconductor components.
In contrast to pastes based on metal oxides or liquid metal, ARCTIC MX-5 is neither electrically conductive nor capacitive. This eliminates the risk of short circuits and discharges, plus you don't have to worry about corrosion damage to the cooler base caused by liquid metal.
Thanks to its consistency, MX-5 is easy to apply, even for beginners. The video below demonstrates different application techniques to avoid air pockets between processors and coolers.
