Arctic Cooling starts shipping the G-1, a thermal glue designed for affixing RAM and VR heatsinks. The glue promises adhesiveness over 10 years, it has a rated temperature range of -45°C to 200°C and a thermal conductivity of 4.3W/mK. It will be bundled with Arctic Cooling's newest coolers and it will also be available separately in retail stores for around $8.86 (6.04EUR, excl. VAT).
Today we proudly present G-1, a special formulated thermal
glue designed to replace the typical thermal tapes for affixing
RAM and VR heatsinks. G-1 outperforms generic thermal tapes
in two ways: enhanced thermal conductivity and reliability. G-1
improves cooling of components and thus creates headroom for
Made with metal-free composite, the G-1 is electrically non-conductive to eliminate the risk of
causing short circuits to the mainboard. In contrast to thermal tapes, the G-1 does not age and
once cured, it guarantees adhesiveness over 10 years.
Hassle-free application is another feature which is worth to note. Simply mix the two pouches of
the compound together with a mixing wand and container that are included, its thin and fluid-like
texture allows users to easily apply and control the thickness of the paste according to their needs.
Designed for overclockers to interchange their coolers on
different mainboards, removing heatsinks that are affixed with the
G-1 is extremely easy. Once the glue cures after application, it
becomes a texture similar to thermal pads, thus removing the G-1
is a breeze – same as thermal pads. Moreover, G-1 would not
leave any residues behind to ensure the components are always
intact. This certainly cuts a lot of time for overclockers to remove/
reapply on the heatsinks.
The G-1 is now bundled with ARCTIC’s latest CPU and VGA
coolers. It is also available separately with MSRP at $ 8.86 USD
and € 6.04 EUR, excl. VAT.
