5 out of 5 eggsThe best

This review is from: ARCTIC MX-4 Carbon-Based Thermal Compound, Non-Electricity Conductive, Non-Capacitive, Non-Bleeding - 20g

Pros: - It works, and it works GREAT.
- I have this sandwiched between an AMD FX8350 and a NZXT Kraken X61. Running games on ultra settings (read: The Division (beta), Metro Redux, Fallout 4, GTA V, The Witcher 3), my CPU stays between 35-42*C. While idling, the temp seems to bounce around a bit more in Cam software, but the liquid temp stays at about 31-33*C.

Cons: - Absolutely nothing

Other Thoughts: One thing to keep in mind is that you get a LOT of paste in this tube, so if you only plan on building 1 or 2 rigs, you can probably go with a smaller tube. Regardless of the CPU you put this on, it should hardly break a sweat while running strenuous applications (such as playing the games I listed above). Of course, that's assuming you have a sufficient cooling solution, too.

Arctic's been in the game a long time, and they've got their recipes down pat with thermal pastes. No reason to buy any other brand. I won't bother joining the discussion of which specific Arctic paste is the best, but MX-4 has always worked wonderfully for me.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Stuff

This review is from: ARCTIC MX-4 Carbon-Based Thermal Compound, Non-Electricity Conductive, Non-Capacitive, Non-Bleeding - 20g

Pros: Good bond, transfers heat great!

Cons: No cons, big tube like this will last a while. Probably go bad on me after 10 years...

Other Thoughts: Read a ton of reviews about thermal compounds and found this to be best for my applications. This competes directly with some of the really expensive stuff that has very careful installation procedures.

5 out of 5 eggsQuality paste

This review is from: ARCTIC MX-4 Carbon-Based Thermal Compound, Non-Electricity Conductive, Non-Capacitive, Non-Bleeding - 20g

Pros: Unlike most thermal pastes Arctic MX-4 allows for easy removal of the cpu cooler and doesn't dry out and cake up which is a must for me.

Cons: A bit overpriced but worth the extra $

5 out of 5 eggsGood product

This review is from: ARCTIC MX-4 Carbon-Based Thermal Compound, Non-Electricity Conductive, Non-Capacitive, Non-Bleeding - 20g

Pros: Good viscosity to it. Easy to apply from the tube and comes with a resealable twist off from the syringe. Transfers heat well like it's meant to do. Came in a nice simple little box with some foam wrap around the point to protect from the cap ripping off and keeping the contents inside of the tube.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsBest thermals

This review is from: ARCTIC MX-4 Carbon-Based Thermal Compound, Non-Electricity Conductive, Non-Capacitive, Non-Bleeding - 20g

Pros: I had a faulty motherboard and FX-9590 that I went through three closed system liquid coolers and half a dozen remountings. I've used several different iterations of this product and this MX-4 version is comparatively the best I've ever used. I don't have exact numbers, but I've had success with it where others failed.

Cons: Unless you are a power builder, there's more compound than anyone can use in a lifetime in this tube.

Other Thoughts: Over-application is easy to clean up.

5 out of 5 eggsperfect

This review is from: ARCTIC MX-4 Carbon-Based Thermal Compound, Non-Electricity Conductive, Non-Capacitive, Non-Bleeding - 20g

Pros: Best all round thermal paste there is. excellent performance.
NON CONDUCTIVE
can be used as thermal paste for just about anything.
cheap to stock up for
having different compounds for different situations is obsolete.

Cons: my own testing shows average thermal 0.66c higher then using metallic conductive AS-5 (3 tests for accuracy on same rig hyper212 evo 8350 4.5ghz)

Other Thoughts: still not a con. to be that close the AS-5 performance AND NOT BE CONDUCTIVE is amazing.
can be used for anything.
I do computer repairs/ builds for a living. mx-4 has been out for a while now and I always had a different paste for each situation. my friend convinced me to try and now I will only use a fat value tube of this as my only thermal compound at my office.

5 out of 5 eggsOne and only thermal paste king!

This review is from: ARCTIC MX-4 Carbon-Based Thermal Compound, Non-Electricity Conductive, Non-Capacitive, Non-Bleeding - 20g

Pros: The quality by far in comparison to Prolimatech PK-3, Tuniq TX-4 and Arctic Silver 5 is superior. Brought my temps down on my 4790K with H100i about 28% and my Titan X to about 15% as well comparing the other thermal paste that I used. Rice grain sized application is all you need. This tube will last you at least 50 applications or more.

Cons: Absolutely nothing! Should have more rewards for awesomeness.

Other Thoughts: Wish I'd get my money back for the other thermal paste brands.
