Features, Specifications

  • Easy to apply
  • Optimal thermal conductivity
  • Low thermal resistance
  • Electrically non-conductive
  • Non-capacitive/non-curing/non-corrosive/non-bleeding

Detailed features:

Non-Metallic Thermal Compound
The ARCTIC MX-4 is a metal-free and non-electrical conductive which eliminates any risks of causing short circuit, adding more protection to the CPU and VGA cards.

Unmatched Performance
The ARCTIC MX-4’s consistency is engineered for simplicity of application, superior thermal conductivity and high durability. With its new formula, the ARCTIC MX-4 guarantees exceptional heat dissipation from the components and supports the stability needed to push your system to its limit.

Non-curing and no bleeding means longer service life of the compound. In contrast to metal and silicon compounds, the ARCTIC MX-4 does not show decreasing performance over time. It does not need to be reapplied and has a durability of at least 8 years.
