Arctic Cooling MX-3 thermal compound launched

Posted on Thursday, July 02 2009 @ 14:06:45 CEST by

Arctic Cooling has introduced the Arctic MX-3 thermal compound, it's a carbon microparticles compound that ships in 4g tubes. The cooling company claims this new thermal paste performs up to 2.5°C better than branded thermal compounds and up to 7°C better than stock thermal compound. It will be available later this month for 8.95EUR ($12.25).
As an upgraded version of the award-winning ARCTIC MX-2, the performance of the ARCTIC MX-3 outranges other well-known thermal compounds clearly. This new compound is composed of carbon microparticles which lead to an extremely high thermal conductivity – 8.2 W/mK. It guarantees that heat from the CPU or GPU can be dissipated quickly and efficiently.

Tested and proven, by using the ARCTIC MX- 3, the CPU core temperature is 7°C and 2.5°C lower than using stock compound and other branded ones respectively. It shows how significant a high performance thermal compound can be to reduce the temperature. Such excellent cooling result is surely what every overclocker and gamer is looking for. The ARCTIC MX-3 is the easiest way to push the overclockability further!

Safer. Better.
The ARCTIC MX-3 is a metal-free, non-electrically conductive compound which does not cause any damage of the components if it is accidentally spilled out on them. It eliminates any risks of short circuit and provides more protection to the CPUs, graphic cards and other applications between power semiconductor components and heatsinks. The ARCTIC MX-3 is a truly hassle-free premium thermal compound you can rely on.

Arctic MX-3 specifications:
  • Thermal conductivity: 8.2W/mK
  • Viscosity: 875 poise
  • Density: 2.32g/cm³
  • Net weight: 4g
