Antec's Formula 6 thermal compound protects your CPU even when your rig is running on all cylinders. Since little of the CPU's surface actually touches the heat sink, you need a solution that isolates and facilitates the transfer of heat. Formula 6's nano diamond particles minimize the distance between heat-conductive compounds and gladly take on the highest demanding CPU, optimally performing between -30°C and 250°C. To keep your system cool and your CPU functioning comfortably, pick up Antec’s Formula 6 for a diamond-caliber solution.

  • newegg Exceptional Performance The Antec Formula 6 boasts diamond particles measuring 0.0000015 cm rated at 5.3 w/mK that lead to an extremely high thermal conductivity. Extended -30°C to 250°C stable temperature range guarantees quick and efficient dissipation of heat from the CPU ideal for performance cooling.
  • newegg High Durability Unlike transitional thermal compounds that show decreasing performance over time, this lighter, easier to spread stable composition won’t crack or dry out, delivering excellent long-lasting thermal conductivity.

5 out of 5 eggsThrow that OEM garbage away!

Pros: Incredibly thick.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Applying thermal compound has always been a disaster for me. I've gone through more alcohol and paper towels than I'd ever like to recount. Turns out the stuff that comes with your fan is usually about the same consistency as a weak soup. You put this stuff on and it'll practically glue your heatsink to your CPU. It won't spill out, even if you are cartoonishly trying to line up the screws when the 1151 socket holes.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Stuff!

Pros: Good Heat Dispersion
Perfect Viscosity
More than enough for the average builder

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Only use a pea size circle in the middle of the CPU and DO NOT spread, simply push the cooler evenly onto the CPU and do not slide it around or lift it back up, this will smear it and not work very well, also make sure your tighten the screws a little at a time if your tighten one all the way it will push the other side up and cause the compound to smear!

5 out of 5 eggsAntec Nano Diamond 6

Pros: I married my phenomenal amd to antec's diamond dusted thermal compound.

I am using the x555 with Zalman/ThermalTake cooling

went into mild oc'ing with unlocked cores and temps never seem to go anywhere.

Cons: antec nano diamond 7 was sold out


Other Thoughts: My CPU temps seem glued at under 37*c on idle even after 3dmark11 tests.

i feel like with the right voltage tweeks and mobo love, i feel like a 600mhz oc is possible.

all while keeping my temps at under 44*c.

what is silver again???

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Transfers heat very well, able to keep CPU cool with only stock CPU fan and stock case exhaust fan. Spreads out nicely when heatsink is set on top. Enough in tube for multiple applications if needed.

Cons: Does not spread well when putting on initial application. You try and cover one spot, it lifts up on to your tool and ends up in another. Always doing the opposite of what it should do. I guess thermal paste is never easy but this stuff seemed rather difficult compared to others.

5 out of 5 eggsBests Formula5 Hands Down

Pros: I have been a fan of Formula5 for many years, since back in 2004 when I applied it to my Northwood P4 water loop. This paste beats it without hesitation. For exact figures, see other thoughts.

Cons: None. Don't listen to whining about how "hard" it is to apply. It's a little tacky. I would rate it no harder than filling a 3" hole in a wall with spackle. If you can manage that, you can manage this.

Other Thoughts: The list of devices, loads and temps I've tested on:
T4300, 2.1 DC, 100% LL-D : 50C
E6700, 3.2->3.6, DC, 80-90% OpenCL (MFAKTO): 48-52
HD4650, 600->900(5)/930(6) : 85% OpenCL : 64C (5) -> 55C (6)
Dual L5420 Xeons: 2.5 QC: 80% LL/TF @ 67C(5) -> 95-100% LL/TF @ 66C (6)

Mind you all the prior Formula5 temps are fully cured over months, with dust addressed on a regular basis.

Other than applying AS6 (removing 5 w/ 91% isopropyl), today was normal maintenance and I've added OC or Load and dropped thermals on all devices tested, on the day of application.

5 out of 5 eggsTemps dropped a ton

Pros: My lows are 39* C and my high doesn't go over 70*C it was mid-high 50s before and my highs were in the 100s which isn't good for my asus g73jh

Cons: Its thick and hard to get off your fingers lol

Other Thoughts: I would buy this product again maybe for life I am really pleased with how well it turned out.

5 out of 5 eggsBang for the Buck

Pros: Spread even over the cpu and gpu, gave great cooling for my AMD 8120 OC 4.4Ghz, 16C idle and 46C full load with stock cooling. Also spread over my GTX 275 and GTS450 gets about 38C - 60C on load.

Cons: Wished i had more :) LOL
