Arctic Cooling started shipping the Arctic MX-4 thermal compound, it will be available in retail stores for around $9.95 (7.45EUR).
(Pfäffikon/Switzerland, September 13, 2010) ARCTIC introduces a new thermal compound today,
ARCTIC MX-4, which features a new formula that guarantees exceptional heat dissipation from
components and maintains the needed stability to push your computer system to its maximum.
Similar to the performance of existing and acclaimed ARCTIC MX-series, ARCTIC MX-4 continues
to be overclocker’s ultimate choice when choosing thermal compounds. Prior to its introduction into
the market, ARCTIC MX-4 has already received a Top Product Award from PC Games Hardware
in a Germany print magazine in August 2010 as it prevailed against 11 other thermal compounds
in the market.
Superior Performance and Easy Application
The ARCTIC MX-4 is a premium-grade thermal paste with exceptional performance and ease of application. It is an
electrically non-conductive paste that is applied between CPU/GPU and designated coolers to transfer the dissipated heat
from the components to the heat sink. Since the ARCTIC MX-4 is a metal-free compound, it eliminates the risks of
causing short circuit and in turn adding more protection to your computer.
The new formula in the ARCTIC MX-4 features optimal thermal conductivity
and low thermal resistance. These characteristics effectively dissipate the
emitted heat from the core components.
The consistency of the ARCTIC MX-4 is designed for simple application. Its
texture is just thin enough to spread onto components using fingers without
creating much mess.
