Ultimate Performance Thermal Paste
ARCTIC presents MX-6, its newly developed UltimatePerformance Thermal Paste. It has been developed as a successor to the tried-and-tested MX-4, one of the world's best-selling thermal pastes. Behind MX-6, stand over 20 years of expertise in the PC-cooling market, enabling ARCTIC to offer this high-performance product at a fair price.
MX-6 is easy to apply thanks to its high viscosity and thus thicker consistency. In contrast to thermal pastes based on metal oxide or liquid metal, it is not electrically conductive and not capacitive. This eliminates the risk of short circuits and discharges and eliminates corrosion damage to the radiator floor, which often occurs when liquid metal is used.
The new MX-6 features low thermal resistance, and is easy to apply and safe to use, ensuring reliable heat dissipation over long periods of time. It is suitable for all CPUs and GPUs in PCs, laptops or consoles, as well as ICs.
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.
Versatile Range Of Applications
With its new composition, MX-6 is the suitable thermal compound for many application scenarios. Excellent non-drying and non-bleeding properties ensure consistent long-term performance. Its viscosity prevents leakage due to the Pump-Out Effect. It's also suitable for direct-die cooling scenarios which occur, for example, with graphics cards or console processor GPUs.
Often Copied But Never Achieved
ARCTIC's thermal pastes have always been one of the most popular products on the TIM market. To be able to ensure that a paste has been produced and filled under ARCTIC regulations and thus meets our high quality standards, we have the ARCTIC Authenticity Check. This means that every product can be reliably verified so that our customers are always on the safe side.
Thanks to its consistency, MX-6 is easy to apply even for beginners. In the video, we show how it can be applied to avoid air pockets between the processor and the cooler
