Thermal paste is the most commonly used method of heat transfer between CPUs and heat sinks. While the contact surface of the cooler and the CPU appear absolutely smooth, the surface is actually covered with microscopic ridges that reduce cooling capability. Thermal paste fills these ridges and optimizes the cooling.
While ARCTIC MX-2 and MX-4 have been some of the most popular thermal pastes on the market with PC users for years, the use of a high-performance thermal paste such as the MX-4 is also worthwhile for gaming consoles. What sets ARCTIC thermal pastes apart are their extremely high thermal conductivity, top quality and exceptional durability. Thanks to their consistency, they are easy to apply, even for first time users, and absolutely safe to use because they are metal-free and non-electrically conductive.
