Arctic Cooling has released a new non-electrical conductive thermal compound called MX-2. Since the MX-2 compound does not contain any metal particles, there are no problems regarding electrical conductivity and capacitance. In contrast to silver and copper compounds, contact with electrical traces, pins, and leads cannot result in any damage.

  • High Thermal Conductivity
  • Low Thermal Resistance
  • Non-Electrical Conductive
  • Non-Capacitive
  • Non-Curing
  • Non-Corrosive
  • No Bleeding
  • Odorless
Arctic claims the MX-2 compound will last for at least 8 years. One tube costs $7.95 (5.95EUR) and according to an independent test it scores a couple of degree Celsius better than the old MX-1 and Arctic Silver 5.
