With its new formula, the MX-5 allows a low minimum bondline thickness and thus features in combination with a high thermal conductivity a very low thermal resistance. Thanks to its non-drying and non-bleeding properties, it guarantees a good long-term performance.
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.
Thanks to its consistency, MX-5 is easy to apply, even for beginners. The video in the picture gallery demonstrates different application techniques to avoid air pockets between processors and coolers.
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.
