ARCTIC has been widely known since the early 2000s for its line of thermal compounds. This week, the company reveled its new MX-6 thermal paste. It uses a new formulation based on the MX-4, but with 20 percent lower thermal resistance, while not needing expensive ingredients like diamond dust or precious metals. Pricing starts at 5.59EUR.
We are proud of our thermal pastes. With over twenty years of experience in the PC cooling market and the goal to offer first-class products at a fair price, we have developed the MX-6. The formula of the new thermal paste is based on the proven MX-4, one of the best-selling thermal pastes in the world. Our focus was both on improving performance and on versatile application possibilities and an easy-to-use consistency.

Thanks to improved composition, the MX-6 has a measurably lower thermal resistance and achieves up to 20% better performance. It achieves this without reputed ingredients like expensive diamond dust or various precious metals. Like all our thermal pastes, it is non-conductive and non-capacitive. This eliminates the risk of short circuits and discharges.

The application of the MX-6 is particularly easy thanks to its viscosity, which also makes it particularly suitable for direct-die applications, which occur, for example, with graphics cards or console processor GPUs.

The ARCTIC MX-6 thermal compound is available in various resealable packaging sizes from 2g to 8g as well as in a variant with MX Cleaner.
