5 out of 5 eggsThermal paste

This review is from: ARCTIC MX-2 (4g) Carbon-Based Thermal Compound, Non-Electricity Conductive, Non-Capacitive

Pros: very nice thermal paste, I had a significant temps drop (10Cmin) on the stock cooler of my nvidia's 580 vga cards, and life expectancy of this paste is supposed to be 8 years, and that's great.

Cons: no con, at all.

Other Thoughts: I hope lifetime expectancy is right!

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: ARCTIC MX-2 (4g) Carbon-Based Thermal Compound, Non-Electricity Conductive, Non-Capacitive

Pros: keeps my cpu at 30c idle, i swear nowhere in the description or photos of the heatsink i purchased did it show any thermal paste, so i purchased this with it. when the heatsink arrived it already containted a bottle of this same thermal paste.. lol..

Cons: expensive if you're only going to use it maybe once a year if that..

3 out of 5 eggsAverage at best?

This review is from: ARCTIC MX-2 (4g) Carbon-Based Thermal Compound, Non-Electricity Conductive, Non-Capacitive

Pros: Non conductive

Cons: None, see other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: My paste of choice has always been Arctic Silver 5 but I decided to try this because it's non conductive in nature. What can I say about this stuff? Well, as my title suggests, it's average. I don't believe it gives you the cooling performance it claims.

Now with that being said, I used this product on my new Intel Core I7 5820K which was a brand new build so I have no referance of compairison with any other product like Arctic Silver 5. I can however tell you my cousin built the same computer as I, same cpu, mobo, ram, etc., he is using the Corsair H100i. Whereas I am using the Corsair H80 to cool our cpu's.

He stuck with using the paste that was pre applied to his block and I used this stuff. The end results are we are running at about the same temps, 34c idle and 62c load. We are both overclocked to 4ghz.

With my cousin having a double rad and I only a single, you would think he would get better cooling them me. Could this be because he stuck with using the factory pre applied thermal paste? Yes, it could. I do know that stuff is bottom of the barrel in performance.

He could get better temps than me if he uses something better, perhaps even this stuff. One could also make the assumption with me having the single rad using this stuff and he having the double rad using factory paste, this stuff wins in cooling performance with us running at the same temps.

I think im going to get some more AR5 and reseat my cpu, let it burn in for a couple days, and see if I get lower or the same temps.

5 out of 5 eggsThermal paste

This review is from: ARCTIC MX-2 (4g) Carbon-Based Thermal Compound, Non-Electricity Conductive, Non-Capacitive

Pros: First time using paste (I used to use dielectric grease). Was reviewed and rated as on of the best. Assists my water cooler in keeping my processor under 38C. Didn't fully load it (processor) yet. Says there's an optimal burn in time of 500 hours?

Cons: N/A
