After quite a long time without much competition in the high-end thermal compound market we're finally starting to see some new products this year. Tuniq and some other companies recently introduced new thermal compound products and today Noctua unveils their NT-H1.
The NT-H1 is described as a hybrid compound for minimum thermal resistance, excellent ease of use and long-term stability. The compound isn't electrically conductive, doesn't require a burn-in and has a recommended usage time (on the CPU) of up to 3 years.
"Many current TIM solutions have drawbacks either in terms of
performance or ease of use", explains Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO.
"Enthusiasts in particular, who frequently change their coolers, demand
both first class performance and trouble-free handling though. Our NT-H1
combines these two features and provides all the performance,
reliability and quality that Noctua users have come to expect from our
NT-H1 is not only suited for air and water cooling, but also for use
with compressor coolers: Even at the very lowest temperatures, the paste
delivers full performance and remains easy to clean off.
NT-H1 is available within syringes of 1.4ml, which is
sufficient for at least 15 applications. The MSRP is
EUR 7.99 / USD 8.99.
