Arctic Cooling MX-2 Thermal Paste Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
For almost ten years now, Arctic Silver has been the dominant brand of thermal interface material. While new challengers have appeared on a regular basis, few have been able to match the performance of Arctic Silvers products, much less beat them. TweakTown has just reviewed the new Arctic Cooling MX-2 thermal paste.
Lets see what they had to say:
Once everything is said and done, the MX-2 compound from Arctic Cooling has shown that it is up to the challenge of taking on the big guns known as Arctic Silver. While not a huge difference in temperature, it is an improvement and totally safe to your components as well. After all, even enthusiasts have to live within a budget.
It outperforms Arctic Silver 5 by 1 Degree Celsius, but costs $2-3 more. It is worth it? Well that all comes to whether you want to extract the best possible performance out of your cooling solution. For most enthusiasts, I suspect that the answer is yes.
