Arctic Cooling is a company that makes some great products not only for consumer use, but you can find their VGA coolers on card that you might buy in the store. I’ve been using their MX-2 thermal Compound for quite a while now, and it works great, today they’ve announced a new version aptly named MX-3.
(Pfäffikon/Switzerland, 2 July 2009) The Swiss cooling solution provider ARCTIC
COOLING today unveiled the new premium thermal compound ARCTIC MX-3 (4g). Its
high thermal conductivity and non-curing nature make it one of the best thermal
compounds for overclockers and gamers.
Unparalleled thermal performance
As an upgraded version of the award-winning ARCTIC MX-2, the performance of the ARCTIC MX-3 outranges other well-known thermal compounds clearly. This new compound is composed of carbon microparticles which lead to an extremely high thermal conductivity – 8.2 W/mK. It guarantees that heat from the CPU or GPU can be dissipated quickly and efficiently.
Tested and proven, by using the ARCTIC MX-3, the CPU core temperature is 7°C and 2.5°C
lower than using stock compound and other branded ones respectively. It shows how
significant a high performance thermal compound can be to reduce the temperature.
Such excellent cooling result is surely what every overclocker and gamer is looking for. The ARCTIC MX-3 is the easiest way to push the overclockability further!
The ARCTIC MX-3 is a metal-free, non-electrically conductive compound which does not cause any damage of the components if it is accidentally spilled out on them. It eliminates any risks of short circuit and provides more protection to the CPUs, graphic cards and other applications between power semiconductor components and heatsinks. The ARCTIC MX-3 is a truly hassle-free premium thermal compound you can rely on.
The ARCTIC MX-3 guarantees 8-year durability. It is available in July 2009. The MSRP is US$12.25 and 8.95€.
