Cooler Master ThermalFusion 400 - High Performance Thermal Compound
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs The "utilitarian" 08/27/2012

This review is from: Cooler Master ThermalFusion 400 - High Performance Thermal Compound

Pros: I had to replace the stock thermal solution on my i7 920 which I still run with the heatsink it came with. Picked up this one from Cooler Master and so far it has done exactly what it's supposed to do - to keep a close contact between the heat-spreader of the CPU and the heatsink base.

The solution itself is very easy to apply, spreads nicely and effortlessly than many other of its class. Neither is very sticky nor does ooze out - ideal to work with. The included spatula thing really came very handy to administer a thin layer, a nice addition indeed!

I noticed the temps came down from 60*C/65*C to an acceptable and steady 56*C under load. I have a cramped CM Elite 335 case without much air-circulation, so that's a good result for me.

Cons: Not much except I've a good amount leftover which I have no use of right now. Well, maybe next build!

Other Thoughts: Overall the ThermalFusion is a very easy to work with compound and for the price does its job very well. Under the stock fan-sink I don't think this compound (or any other in the market for that matter) will help reduce the temperatures dramatically as that's not the thermal agent's primary function. People claiming temp-drops of ~10*C by just changing thermal paste brand either don't understand how thermodynamics works or just attributing credits to the wrong recipient!
