With its improved composition, the ARCTIC MX-6 has a measurably lower thermal resistance than theMX-4.The basis for calculation is the temperature difference between the cooler base and the heat source (in C) in relation to the applied heat load (in W), which also results in the unit C/W. The higher the thermal resistance, the worse the heat can be transferred through the TIM layer. The higher the thermal resistance, the worse the heat can be transferred through the TIM layer. Thermal insulators, as an example, therefore always have a particularly high thermal resistance, while thermal interface materials usually have a particularly low one.
Optimal Consistency for Every Application
Depending on personal preference and area of application, a thinner or thicker thermal compound may be preferred. Excellent non-drying and non-bleeding properties ensure constant long-term performance. WithARCTIC thermal pastesyou will find the optimal viscosity for your application.
We are proud of our thermal pastes. With over 20 years of experience in the PC cooling market the MX-6 was developed with the goal to offer a first-class product at a fair price. The optimized formula is based on the proven MX-4, one of the best-selling thermal pastes in the world. The focus was on versatile application possibilities and an easy-to-use consistency.
Simply the Paste
The ARCTIC MX-6 is a carbon filler-based thermal paste and reaches its maximum performance without burn-in, directly after application and distribution. It achieves all of this without any reputed ingredients, such as expensive diamond dust or various precious metal particles. The silicone gel used as a carrier enables optimal distribution, which is achieved through even contact pressure, for example when mounting the heat sink.
MX-6 is neither electrically conductive nor capacitive. This eliminates the risk of short circuits or discharges, which can cause serious damage to components if care is not taken. The thermal paste is also free of liquid metal components, which can often lead to discoloration, abrasion or corrosion damage to the radiator bottom.
